    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only way to get to KUPRES is by the bus, if you don't have a car, of course. If you go from SPLIT -CROATIA to SARAJEVO you will pass through KUPRES because KUPRES is a transit town from SPLIT -SARAJEVO. or from central BOSNIA to the ADRIATIC COAST.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    mined areas are far from the centre and you can ask for a map of mined areas in the tourist information centre...
    my advice is -don't wAlk alone through woods and unknown areas before you inform yourself about mines in these areas...
    SOMETIMES YOU WILL SEE RED SIGNS AND SOMETIMES YELLOW TRACKS ***
    TRANSLATION :

    mined area - MINIRANO PODRUCJE, PAZI MINE
