The paper focuses on Neum, the only coastal town in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a cross-border space and the factors that shape the identification process, with an empasis on its transit dimension and location between two borders and two states. The features of Neum's identity are developed in relation to tourism, the main contributor to the economy of the area, and the guest-tourist conflict developing accordingly, bearing in mind that majority of tourists arrive from Bosnia. Bosnia as the Close Other functions as a mode against which local and national identity is constructed. Borders and poor trafic connection are the defining factors that condition the closedness of the community.
