The City of Bijeljina is located near the Drina's mouth into the Sava, and these two rivers are northern and eastern border of the city towards Mačva and Srem.
The rivers Drina and Sava are also state borders towards Serbia and Croatia, and the city centre is approximately six kilometres away from the border towards Serbia and forty kilometres from the border towards Croatia.

Due to its geopolitical location, Bijeljina is the crossroad between west part of Republika Srpska and Serbia, as well as between east part of Republika Srpska / south part of BaH towards north Serbia, and then to Pannonian Basin and Central Europe. Due to its fertile land, Bijeljina is one of the centres for production, processing and trade of food, mostly crops and vegetables. In addition, the most important carriers of development of the city are companies engaged in wood and metal processing, and currently developing industries are tourism, services, civil engineering, transportation, telecommunications, trade, education...
Semberija lies on a huge underground lake of thermal water used for spa treatments at the famous Dvorovi Spa, located six kilometres away from Bijeljina. It is planned to use the thermal water to heat large greenhouses for production of vegetables and flowers in the near future.
Approximately 115,000 people live in the City of Bijeljina, which makes it the second largest city in Republika Srpska.
