This article explains areal planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the system of regional planning, starting from government politics and circumstances, along with regional development perspectives through planning on local and municipal levels. (Nurković, R., 2011) The aim of this article is to present key issues of the modern areal planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as problems that cities are faced with. In that sense, the basis of everything is demographics, economics, environment, energy and traffic. Demographic averages in Bosnia and Herzegovina are important in determining urban areal planning of development in future. Numerous urban areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina are taken by dynamic urbanization. The consequence of that is small cities and villages have adopted the significance of suburban satellites. However, such position, without adequate planning, is not sustainable for long, and current advantages may be easily lost. Sarajevo functional urban region takes the central place in Bosnia and Herzegovina around the capital city of Sarajevo. It is the most prosperous urban planning area in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it contains all functions of the typical European urban region. Local communities within the urban planning of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the conditions of mainly spontaneous transition, have taken over a significant role through which funds are directed towards urban areas with the purpose of their revivification and enabling a higher life standard for population settling in these areas. Rural potentials in Bosnia and Herzegovina are emphasized as the main precondition of efficient planning and usage, from the aspect of political and economic factors of development considering the physical characteristics of land.
