 Summary:
 The Institute for Standardization in Bosnia and Herzegovina has recently published new interactive maps for characteristic values of snow load, basic wind velocity and map of seismic hazard with referential peak ground accelerations for territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of national annexes to Eurocode 1 and Eurocode 8, that superseded former Yugoslav standards and rulebooks. Bihać is one of the largest cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and administrative center of Una-Sana Canton. However, during the recent history, some buildings and structures in Bihać experienced damages or even collapse due to snow loads or wind actions. Bihać, unlike other cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, was not one of the cities with newly constructed high – rise settlements. Somehow, most of the buildings were up to five storeys high, which shows awareness of engineers and architects about the suspect quality of the load bearing soil, as well as their attention to the seismic zone that Bihać belongs to. In spite of this, there are examples of the high–rises in Bihać, but in smaller scales than those in other cities. The highest high-rise in Bihać reaches 16 storeys, and it functioned as residential building with commercial services at the first two floors. As need for construction of high-rises in Bihać in future may arise, taking in consideration its administrative position and business development, this research is contribution for structural possibilities of construction of high-rises in Bihać, taking in consideration new annexes to Eurocodes 1 and 8.
