    Travel Guides - Bosnia and Herzegovina

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jun 16, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Bosnia and Herzegovina is a rapidly developing country, therefore an up to date guide book for independent travellers is highly recommended. I must admit that it was quite difficult to find any guide books about the country.

    In our accomodation in Sarajevo we found the Bradt travel guide - Bosnia and Herzegovina which covers all sorts of information from historical background and descriptions of the sights to practical information about public transportation, accomodation and restaurants.

    Also before the trip I read a lot in the German travel guide Trescher - Bosnien Herzegowina entdecken which has very detailed background infos about all sights. Unfortunately, this guide is not available in English.

    In Your Pocket Guide

    by HORSCHECK Updated Sep 26, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: I must admit that I am a huge fan of the "In Your Pocket" guides.

    They are usually an excellent resource for information about travels to Eastern or Central European cities.

    When we went to Sarajevo in September 2008 there was only a so called essential mini guide of "In Your Pocket" available on their website. Still it was very helpful for our trip. Since autumn 2009 a proper "In Your Pocket" guide exists about Sarajevo.

    The guide not only provides helpful basics, but also many off the beaten path tips and background information, which I didn't find in any other guides.

    Apart from that the restaurant reviews are usually entertaining to read and sometimes even helpful.

    The "In Your Pocket" guides can also be downloaded free of charge from their website.

    guide book

    Miscellaneous: I thought the choice of guide books for the city might be limited, and I was right. I chose the Bradt guide on Bosnia & Herzegovina. First time I'd bought anything by that publisher (I'm a DK Eyewitness Travel buyer usually).

    I liked it a lot. In large part this was due to the writing style of the author Tim Clancy. The only disappointing element was the maps - could have been better.

    Recommended anyway!

    Good Walking Shoes

    by easterntrekker Written Aug 12, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Much of Sarajevo can be explored on foot , so bring really comfortable walking shoes.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It was very hot when we visited in June. We were happy we brought light shirts and shorts ,that are easy to wash in a sink and dry overnight. There are shops where you can buy moistly everything but cabs are expensive and who wants to spend all day tracking around trying to shop for basics.

    very dependant on the season of the year

    by adonai_2012 Written Jul 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: as much as it is neccessary-this is what we always say when taking off to a pleace, right?;)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: WINTER-warm jackets,sweathers,good shoes for snow, possibly the not slippery ones as sometimes it gets icy wwoah!, a cap, scarf,gloves - all can be bought around but untill then you might become a penguin...and this is not what we wish for u here ;)

    SUMMER-light close as anywhere where tepm. is daily 30 and more celsius, and nites depends-sometimes light blouse needed above the short sleaves just in case

    SPRING/FALL-started raining heavily as those climate, global changes started taking place - so, as if u go to UK in spring, even early summer:)

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: all can be bought here
    only if taking some medication on prescribtion-take it with you
    in general, without a stamp of a doc it is very hard to buy:antibiotics, psychiatri drugs, heavy anesthetics...i think that's it

    Photo Equipment: whatever u like

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: there are swimming pools-for the summer&winter time
    there are sport fields for tennis, football, etc etc etc
    camping-nature in Bosnia is pretty indeed, so if u like to camo-yes take that with u

    Miscellaneous: ppl here still are not 100% used to see your pet in all places, so...you can take ur dog with you but check the hotel and places if the 'animal' is allowed. no big worries as i take my cosmic love, pekineese, around a lot...sometimes, though, i have to change the caffee's garden;) -sometimes, not on a regular base

    What to pack

    by Krumlovgirl Written Jan 4, 2005

    Luggage and bags: Because taxis are so incredibly inexpensive in Sarajevo, there is the possibility to take them straight from the airport/bus/train depots to your hotel. So you don't have to worry so much about minimal luggage since you don't necessarily have to carry it long stretches of time.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good shose are a must, of course, as is warm weather in the winter. It snows in Sarajevo and even around March and April it can get windy and nippy. Bosnians are notoriously good dressers, so keep that in mind when packing your suitcase.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You'll find pharmacies around, as well as various grocery stores where toiletries can be purchased. If you are female and think you might be on your period, youmight want to carry a couple extra tampons if there is one brand that you really prefer. I have had a hard time finidng them with applicators over there.

    Photo Equipment: Film is readily available for purchase, although more expensive than what you might be used to at home.

    Luggage and bags: Evevrything you need you can find here too. So no big and full bags,lol.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summer is verry hot so take only light clothes but one jacket will be good for suprising weather. Wintter could be verry cold and snowed, take good shoes and warm clothes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing special, we donĀ“t have any dangerous illness.

    Photo Equipment: You can find everything you need, just take photocameras or digital cameras.
