It is estimated that more than 50,000 Bosnians - including Muslims, Catholics and Orthodox - call the eastern Missouri city their home.
In fact, St Louis even has its own Bosnian-language newspaper publication titled 'Sabah', which is sold across all of the United States.

Overall, it is believed that there are over 2 million expatriate Bosnians around the world, with around 500,000 based in the United States, followed by an estimated 200,000 in Germany.

Lets not forget that the current population of Bosnia and Herzegovina is thought to be roughly 3.7 million - giving you some idea of how significant these numbers truly are.
