The article deals with the bugarija [bugaria], a chordophone instrument of the long-necked lute type, which occupied an important place in the lives and customs of the Bosnia-Hercegovinian village population throughout the 20th century. Particular attention is paid to the classification of this instrument, the terminology, ergology, instrument building technology, characteristics of the tone relations, playing techniques, repertoire and performance occasions, and the instrument's diffusion on the territory of Bosnia-Herzegovina. There are very few bugarija musicians and builders active today, so that it is probably only a question of time that the instrument will become merely a part of the past, similarly to many other folk instruments.
