Interesting thread, Krstjanin, thanks for sharing! :) Like how Serbs originate in Sorb country in modern-day Germany and like how Croats originate in modern day Poland/Ukraine, it is perfectly possible that same thing exists with Bosnians (non-Serb and non-Croat). I have seen several examples of ethnic Bosniaks and indeed can confirm that many would not be out of place in Poland. Here are some examples:

Both of this men would not be out of place in Poland.

Some random shots of Bosniaks from SF:

Many of this people would have no problem blending in in Poland either. Indeed, many Bosniaks have also typical South Slavic Dinarid features (more rugged), but with many one can see they originate from this side. Same also with how many Croats are also typically looking from Poles (though Dalmatians have what I consider to be classic Roman med look – ie not modern Italy, except maybe North) and how some Serbs also have look not foreign to Poland.

Though from recent Bulgarian photos I can see indeed some Bulgarians would also blend in in Poland, though indeed there is much higher Pontid component there (no surprise, Black Sea coast, ancient Thrace etc.).
