Re: Travel from Sarajevo

by loonytoon01

Hi! You can't book those trips online but it's not a problem buying your ticket a day in advance (or even less). For train times btw Sarajevo and Zagreb check www.hznet.hr, for a bus timetable www.akz.hr (bus ticket Sarajevo- Zagreb is approx 200Kn or 27 Euro). Train from Sarajevo to Budapest is a never ending story (travel time approx 12h) and it goes from Sarajevo at 07:14, arriving to Budapest at 19:00h (The price of a one way ticket is 97,20 KM= 48Euro). And to cut the long story short, see www.sarajevo-tourism.com/eng/transport.wbsp for timetables&approx prices (prices are quoted in Bosnian currency Convertible Marks, that funny KM sign, and it's approx half that in Euros ie. 1Euro=2KM).

Travel Tips for Sarajevo

The Language

by tomatourist

Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian is a Slavic language. All three variants are mutually intelligible, but have many differences.

Textbooks.

Unfortunately, if you are seriously interested in learning the language, there aren’t many good books available to help you. The books I’ve been using are: Introduction to the Croatian and Serbian Language by Thomas F. Magner. 1991. and Colloquial Croatian and Serbian by Celia Hawkesworth. 1998.

Dictionaries.

If you want to seriously study the language, spend the money and get a good dictionary. The best one available is known as “the Besnon dictionary”—edited by Morton Benson. It’s spendy. If you want the unabridged version, you have to buy two volumes: one for English to Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, and one for Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian to English. Each volume costs around $100 new, but with some perseverance, you may be able to find them used online for around $50. There is also an abridged version of the Benson dictionary, which combines both volumes into one paperback. That one typically goes for around $50. There are many different versions of the Benson dictionary out there; mine were published by Cambridge and are titled: Serbocroatian-English Dictionary and An English-SerboCroatian Dictionary.

If you’re only looking for a travel dictionary, there is one I’ve found that is Bosnian specific. It’s called Bosnian-English/English Bosnian Dictionary and Phrasebook. The author’s name is Susan Kroll.

Inhale... exhale. Inhale......

by oja

Inhale... exhale. Inhale... exhale. But slowly please! The first thing you'll learn in Sarajevo is that time is relative and at our disposal (not the other way round like in the West as we know it). You may find a shop still closed at 1 PM even if it says it opens at 9 AM. Come back later. There's time...
Strolling round Bascarsija (the central square) and inhaling (slowly!) the Oriental feel.

Try 'smreka' with pine taste

by picek

This is very interesting drink - its name 'smreka' means spruce in English because it taste like young spruce tips, which we usually use in Middle Europe to make natural remedy against cold (a thick syrup, very nice when locally made).
Upon words of local, not only spruce tips, but also some kinds of berries are use to make this drink; they keep it in large bottles and it is served with sugar.

I usually love smreka's in one or another form, but that one taste a bit wierd to me. First sip in the mouth is okay, just like spruce I know, but after taste is strange, like very strong citrus (actually, the one they use for washing dishes). Maybe we got not the best 'smreka', but hey, we wanted to try something different, something local. And it really is different.

I recommend it to try. It is just interesting. One marka for one glass.

We had it in Jasmin cafe (or Cafe Jasmin) which is next to taxi station at Bascarsija. A little bit up from tram station. Indeed great place to hang out with old and few young local men and those waiting. No alcohol served there.

Sarajevo's roses

by mikey_e

One of the problems with trying to rebuild a city in which hundreds of thousands of people live is that you often have to resort to quick, stop-gap measures to make the city liveable before you can complete comprehensive restorations. One such stop-gap measure was the use of red rubber to fill the scars left by mortars on the streets of Sarajevo. These red splotches, euphemistically known as “roses” are much fewer now in the centre, but there are a couple that you can see along Marsala Tito. It seems odd to be taking a picture of the street, especially in a city where most people seem to want to forget the war and get on with their lives, but it is still interesting for those of us who live in places that have been lucky enough not to witness the horrors of war and butchery for several decades or even centuries.

Scary wall

by DPando

Some years ago when i was there ...mostly buildings in Sarajevo kept the bullets on it.. like a memory hard to forget . For 3 years the siege was present on the sarajevo people lives... thousand of innocent people died for absolutelly nothing.. special famous is the bombing from the hills that took the market when hundreds of people where there !!
By the way this market is still present so so closer from the turkish quarter and the hostel where i stayed !!
