The Neum corridor dates back to the treaty of Karlovci, where a buffer zone, was created between the Republic of Ragusa and Venetian Dalmatia. The buffer zone was given to the Ottomans who already ruled the area what is now known as Bosnia-Hercegovina.
Later on in history, the Austrians came, the former Rupublic of Ragusa and Venetian Dalmatia was united by the Austrian as a province under Austria called Dalmatia. Naum which had been controlled by Ottomans, became part of the Austrian Condominium (modernday Bosnia-Hercegovina) which was jointly ruled by both Austria and Hungary.
