    Meeting point for busses

    St. James church

    All busses leave you in the old town and then wait for you outside of the town just next to the St. James church.
    To reach St. James church just cross the bridge from the bazar and always go stragight on, you'll find it after the traffic light.

    We booked a bus from Mostar to Dubrovnik.It is quite a frequent service. Please note you must pay 1 Euro or 1 KM per item of luggage you put in the boot of a Bosnian bus. The bus was comfortable and air-conditioned. It did, however, take a long time to go through customs/passport control. On route you exit Bosnia, enter Croatia; then when you hit Neum exit Croatia and re-enter Bosnia. Then after Neum exit Bosnia and re-enter Croatia. Passports are checked each time. The scenery especially the coastal scenery was lovely. The bus cost 32 KM (16 Euros). It took 4 hours due to delays at customs.

    Mostar Bus Station

    Most tourists visit Mostar as a day trip from Dubrovnik and the bus schedule makes it an easy option. There is one bus leaving Dubrovnik at 0800, the same leaves Mostar again on at 1730 - in total, there are up to four daily buses between the two cities. The trip takes around three hours and may involve up to three passport controls: From Dubrovnik, the Bosnian border is passed at Neum, before entering Croatia back again. Afterwards, the bus moves on to Metkovic which is said to be the most hassle-free border crossing in the country. Here, you get an idea of what „Balkanization“ means.
    Tickets costed 110 Kuna one-way (2013). This includes some funny fees like a reservation charge which are not clear on the first sight. You may save some pennies on return tickets, however be aware that tickets are only valid on the bus you bought them for. Therefore, use single tickets to be more flexible.
    If you are on a day trip from Dubrovnik (or anywhere else in Croatia), be aware that the local currency is the Convertible Mark (KM) and the you need foreign money for that day. The bus station ticket counter accepts Euro and Croatian Kuna at an acceptable exchange rate and change the currencies mentioned as well. All other currencies must be changed into KM before you can buy your ticket. All info correct as of mid-2013.

    Tour in Hercegovina

    Blagaj

    Eu estava pensando visitar alguns lugares na Herzegovina mediante a utilização dos transportes públicos, mas só tinha um dia à minha disposição. Blagaj era, para mim, sem dúvida, um lugar de visita obrigatória.
    Na minha pousada, em Sarajevo, fui aconselhado, através dos empregados, a fazer a Excursão do Miran.
    Esta excursão engloba Blagaj, Međugorje, Kravice e Počitelj. Tem a duração de 8 horas, das 10:00 às 18:00, e ainda inclui um pequeno-almoco tradicional e as bebidas.
    Como eu estava viajando de Sarajevo para Mostar de comboio, o horário pareceu-me perfeito.
    Devo dizer que adorei ter feito esta excursão, não só devido ao entusiástico Miran, mas pela grande oportunidade que tive de passar 8 horas de um modo tão agradável. Počitelj foi, definitivamente, o lugar que mais gostei.
    I was thinking to visit some places in Hercegovina using public transportation, but I had only one full day at my disposal. Blagaj was, definitively, a must visit place for me.
    At my hostel, in Sarajevo, the staff advised me to make the Miran's Tour. This tour comprises Blagaj, Međugorje, Kravice and Počitelj. It takes 8 hours, from 10:00 to 18:00. A traditional breakfast and drinks are also included.
    As I was travelling from Sarajevo to Mostar by train, the timetable was perfect.
    I must say I liked a lot to make this tour, not only for the enthusiastic Miran, but for the great opportunity I had to spend 8 hours in a pleasant way. Počitelj was, definitively, the place I liked best.

    The famed Mostar-Sarjevo Express departs Mostar daily at 8:00 am and spends the next three hours slowly winding its way through the mountains and alongside rivers until it arrives at Bosnia's capitol. (I'm not sure where the "Express" part comes from...) The trip costs about five euro and when I went the train was very busy- if you want to sit comfortably and photograph the scenery be prepared to get a little pushy for the seat you want! Seats cannot be reserved and tickets aren't really sold in advance, so arrive at the station no later than 7:30 am.

    Taking the train - 2

    by TheWanderingCamel Updated Jan 10, 2012

    If you're heading to Mostar to stay overnight, the 16.50 train from Ploce (on Croatia's Adriatic coast, about halfway between Split and Dubrovnik) takes you right through the heart of the lush Neretva delta's waving green reed beds, channels, vineyards, orchards and market gardens and on to the lower reaches of the Neretva Gorge, passing the minaret and towers of pretty little Pocitelj before arriving in Mostar. It's not as spectacular as the journey from Mostar to Sarajevo maybe, but I thought it was quite beautiful and far better than the rather boring road trip through the area we'd done the year before

    With departure times from Ploce set at 6am and just before 5pm, the morning journey from Ploce to Mostar is not such an attractive option as this is too early to feasibly get there from anywhere that isn't right on Ploces's doorstep. Ploce itself isn't the most exciting place - I certainly wouldn't plan on spending any more time there than necessary.

    If you're coming by bus from either Split or Dubrovnik, the bus station is right beside the train station, and with buses between Dubrovnik and Split no more than half an hour apart throughout the day, you can time your arrival with a minimum of time to wait.

    Practicalities: The briefest of border formalities are conducted on the train as you cross from Croatia into BiH.
    Bring cold drinks and food with you. Coffee (thick, black and Bosnian) is available on the train and the bus station at Ploce makes a great cheese sandwich.

    2012 is set to see a spanking new, Talgo-type train on this route. "Spring" is the hoped-for time of completion, but I don't know that I'd make any definite plans just yet. Meantime, the line is closed as the necessary engineering work is completed before this new rolling stock can begin to run.

    Taking the train -1

    Coming from Sarajevo to Mostar, the train is a fantastic option, a two and a half hour journey through spectacular scenery. Leaving dead on time at 6.45am from Sarajevo station, you'll arrive in Mostar at 9.15am - the whole day ahead of you to explore the town. There is also a train in the late afternoon - if you're catching that one and you have booked accommodation in Mostar, you might want to arrange for someone to meet you at the station.

    We took the morning train, rolling out of Sarajevo in the pre-dawn light, the sun only cresting over the mountains behind us when we were quite some way on our journey. The light on the autumn leaves of the mountainside trees was magical. Crossing the mountains via a seemingly endless series of switchbacks, viaducts and tunnels was stunning. Once down from the mountains we travelled the length of the Neretva Gorge, stopping briefly at small stations to pick up workers as we approached Mostar.

    Trains are great for the freedom they give you to move around, look back at where you've come from (with all those switchbacks, the views back were as good as those looking forward) and, on such an empty train, spread yourself around. All told, the journey took no longer than the bus would have done and was much more comfortable I'm sure.

    Practicalities: The fare was 21.90KM. We went to the station the day before we left and bought our tickets, just to suss the place out and allow an extra five minutes in bed in the morning.

    Bring cold drinks and food with you. Coffee (thick, black and Bosnian) was available

    All the carriages had clean and functioning toilets.

    There's only one train line through Mostar, and that one runs from Sarajevo to Ploce (Bosnia's only sea port). The train runs through some of the most breathtaking countryside in Europe, and so it's definitely worth taking a trip to the capital just to experience this. There are two trains a day, leaving for Sarajevo at 07.59 and 18.40, and taking about 2.5 hours.

    Bus

    The bus is the easiest way to get to Mostar, and there are many lines running to different parts of the Balkans, and even Europe. It's particularly easy to get to Mostar from Dubrovnik or Sarajevo. The hardest part about taking a bus to or from Mostar is getting hold of any reliable information outside of the country. I even contacted their Eurolines branch by email to confirm a timetable, and got no response.

    You can check out their website but it's not in English and the timetables seem like they are out of date or not complete. For example you can travel direct to Kotor, but the website doesn't acknowledge this and the only time table I could find about the Ulcinj line didn't mention that there was a stop in Kotor on this route (there is). If you are interested there are two buses to Kotor (direct) every day: One leaves at about 7am, the other at about 6pm.

    The bus station is out of town, but it's not difficult to find your way to the centre. Just walk along the tree lined boulevard and take a right any time you feel like: It's only about 5-10 minutes to the old bridge. Just keep close to the river and you'll be in the old town very soon. The station itself is a rotting piece of concrete where even the ATM doesn't work. Nobody speaks English, but you can get by with a pen and paper to explain where you want to go.

    The bus and train stations are next to each other in Mostar. Buses go to many places including Dubrovnik,Split and Belgrade. Trains go to Ploce in Croatia twice a day and twice a day to Sarajevo Bosnia. In Sarajevo there are connections to many places. See Bahn.de for train times. For Bus , in your search put Autobusni Kolodvor.

    Explore Mostar by bus

    Mostar's local transport system consists of yellow buses of the company Mostar Bus d.o.o. They also run services to some of the surrounding towns.

    We once took the local bus to Blagaj, which is served by bus #10 and #11.

    Tickets can be bought directly from the driver. The price depends on the zone you are traveling to. In September 2008 we payed 1,80 KM for a ticket to Zone II.

    Train to Ploce at Mostar station

    We arrived in Mostar by train from Sarajevo and left Mostar by train to Ploce in Croatia.

    There are two daily trains on this route; one in the early morning and one in the early evening.

    Tickets can be bought at the train station, but the ticket office might only open from about 1 h before the train departure.

    Ticket prices were as follows in September 2008:
    - Sarajevo - Mostar: 9,90 KM
    - Mostar - Ploce: 8,60 KM

    The trains consisted of only one 2nd class and two 1st class carriages, which were donations of Sweden. There is only one type of ticket, so we could even sit in the first class and enjoy this very scenic rail trip.

    The bus station in Mostar is around a 15 minute walk from the old town. Arrived and departed from here, Dubrovnik both times.
    Friendly staff at the ticket office, speaking German is useful.
    Autoprevoz and Centrotrans were the services we used, no problems with either.
