Bosnia and Herzegovina Transportation

  • Take the Train

    I'd heard that the train journey to Sarajevo was scenic and so boarded the early morning train from Mostar. It was certainly a pleasant experience offering good views and you can see how the track bends and loops around and through the many tunnels of the surrounding hills. The journey took about two and a half hours. I bought my ticket half an...

  • I suggest you to travel by...

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is a small country, easy to travel around. The distances between the towns are very short and you don't have to be vorried about accomodations.The best way to explore the country is definetely by the car. Although there are no highways in B&H at all, the narrow and very curved roads are very attractive.

  • Rental Cars / Mostar

    A good place to hire rental cars in Mostar is the Hotel Bristol; they offer competitive rates (office is open from 9. a.m.). It might be sensible to book or call ahead, as I don`t know how big their car-pool is.

  • Bus Travel

    Bosnia has a very efficient, reasonably fast and cheap bus system which connects all major cities within Bosnia and even the neighbouring countries (Croatia, Serbia). Usually it is not necessary to book ahead or reserve a seat. You should check the arrival & departure times early. A good website to do so would be the autobus Kolodvor website.

  • Tour groups to Bosnia

    Many buses link cites in Bosnia and Hercegovina. However, the best way (if you want to be absolutely safe from the mines!) is to take a one day excursion tour from the ATLAS travel agency in Dubrovnik, Croatia to Mostar and Pocitelj. They also have tour to the holy village of Medjugorje as well.

  • By car in Western Balkans

    OK - I used to be the "train expert" here... but after moving from the States we landed up taking all our cars with us and I did not board the train since ;-)On the other hand with our driving habits we scared the heck out of the poor citizens all across ex-YU, Srpska and Kosovo included so I maybe can help.1) GPS. Do not be stingy, buy one. You...

  • Penalty on a bus without a fare

    in Sarajevo, when you buy a ticket from the drivers, be sure to insert the machine to validate your ticket, otherwise your ticket is not valid. Bus conductors are trying to find tourist to impose penalty, even if you have a valid ticket.

  • Bus from Sarajevo to Belgrad

    The bus from Sarajevo to Belgrad departs from Lukavica bus station in the Serb-dominated eastern parts of Sarajevo. The tour takes approx. 9 hours with several stops in the serbian areas in Bosnia. The price was 20 USD. It was very strange to notice that the serbs had passport control of all the passengers after 1 hour drive. The two men in their...

  • The road from Croatia to Bosnia

    Beautiful nature with different landscape on the main road from Dubrovnik to Sarajevo via Mostar. This crooked main road is famous for the landscape.

  • Very good bus connections from Sarajevo...

    If you are travelling in Bosnia, and do not have an own car, the public transportation system is very good; at least between the main cities. I found it very comfrotable to travel from Sarajevo to Mostar (and later back all the way from Dubrovnik/Croatia to Sarajevo).Tickets were not expensive, they were easily available from the bus station, no...

  • Railway

    The railwaynetwork in Bosnia-Herzegovina is not very big (about 1000 km). There are 2 main axes: Loznica (Serbia) - Zvornik - Banja Luka - Bihaæ - Knin (Croatia) and Slavonski Šamac (Croatia) - Doboj - Maglaj - Zenica - Sarajevo - Mostar - Ploèe (Croatia). Some minor lines exist, deriving from one of these axes. Bijeljina also has a railwaystation...

  • Airplane

    Bosnia-Herzegovina has good connections by plane. There are direct flights to Zagreb (Croatia Airlines), Budapest (Malev), Frankfurt, Munich (Lufthansa), Rome (Alitalia), Ljubljana (Adria Airways) and Vienna (Austrian Airlines). From the airport, Sarajevo is easy to be reached by taxi or bus. The major rent-a-car companies have an office at the...

  • Bus

    There are several minor and major companies with services in the country. The best known is the international company Eurolines, which has direct connections with some European cities, from most cities 1 extra connection is necessary. Most services run from Belgrade and Zagreb, or other cities close to the border.Busses from Serbia, Montenegro and...

  • Bosnia by car

    You should not forget your greeen card. Without this you won't get in.It is a general rule to have the lights on all day. The cops control and fine this everywhere.Speed traps are also very frequent.Petrol stations are frequent throughout the country.Diesel and normal gasoline can be optained everywhere.LPG gas is not available very often.The...

  • Bosnia by bus

    Most busses go to / from Germany. (SEE THE LINK)Search for other Eurolines connections on the page of the country.If you book in advance you will get an affordable price.For some busses in Bosnia you can not buy tickets in advance for this busses you should be early there to get a (good) place.Busses are the most frequent and most convenient way of...

  • If you're going to be driving in...

    Keep in mind that public signage in the Serb Republic half of BiH is usually in the Cyrillic alphabet. If you're a visitor to the country, your first thought might be that this won't make much difference, as it's all a foreign language anyway. The big difference is that the road signs, town names etc don't reconcile with anything you'll see on maps...

  • Skendervakuf is Kneževo today

    Those of you who knew Bosnia before the war, might be confused by the new names of the places when traveling around the country. Many names of the places have been changed in last 10-15 years. This is the town of Skendervakuf, nearby Banja Luka, now called Kneževo.The name of Skendervakuf is of Turkish origin, however, held even in the times when...

  • The Horse's A$$

    Bosnia is very rural and draft animals are still in common use. We came upon this caravan of horses while driving from Sarajevo to Tuzla.

  • Bosnian Rush Hour

    When rush hour strikes in Bosnia traffic can come to complete halt. Now keep in mind that rush hour here involves things other than vehicles. The photo I included shows rush hour in an area outside of Brcko.

  • Intercity Travel

    To travel betweeen two destinations in Bosnia, check out the price of the return fares. In case of a bus the return fare is almost same as one-way and its wise to buy a return ticket if you going out for a day trip. Bus journey is comfortable since they have got all those new-built roads.

  • Sarajevo Transport

    Sarajevo has an established network of bus and tram system. A ticket for a ride has to be bought earlier from the small kiosks by the tram stops. During evening when there is no kiosk open, it is possible to buy tickets from the driver. But you pay few cents more. You pay only in Bosnian (Convertible) marks as in some offical places it is not...

  • Travelling to / from Bosnia

    Sarajvo is wel-connected to many Croatian cities including, Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik. On the way it also connects many other Bosnian cities. Travel to / from Serbian destination is a bit tricky. since Srajevo is in Muslim-Croat federation, bus from Serbian dstinations including Serb republic in Bosnian and Serbia stops at a village at the outskirt...

  • Rent a Car in Sarajevo Airport

    In Sarajevo airport is difficult to rent a car.Before you arrive to the country try to find any.If you arrive in Sarajevo then is better to contact to a rent a car agency through HOLIDAY IN HOTEL because all the rent a car companys are there.When i first arrive there BUDGET ,AVIS was out of order............

  • The car is the best

    It is so much to see around. I can't imagine anything but the car. That wayt you can see some hidden beauties that are not located right in the towns. For the sports types, bike might be a good idea too.

  • Bad roads

    Roads in BiH are bad.Major roads have asphalt, but they are in poor conditions and heavily trafficated (especially if there is a marriage around..:)).All other roads (the most) have no asphalt and some are just a dirt track through the steep mountains.

  • Travel within Sarajevo and around Bosnia

    We used the public bus system to travel between the various cities around Bosnia. The public buses were clean and inexpensive and seemed to run on schedule. We looked into renting a car and found it price prohibitive. Plus, the roads and the drivers a bit to crazy for us to feel comfortable renting a car. Inside the cities I normally walked or used...

  • Driving

    .Main roads are in relatively good condition, secondary sometimes partly destroyed. When I drove local roads near Bihac they were just repairing..And there are very few cars in mountaineous ares especially. More I found only in Bihac.Don't be surprised seeing SFOR troops on the road and road signs with small table below: SFOR..

  • By bus: easy from Austria,...

    By bus: easy from Austria, Germany, Holland and Croatia. Many buses go to even small locations in BiH, but they are of a reasonably good standard. The main bus company is called Centrotrans and you can visit their web-page ( for schedules (red voznije). Example price: one way ticket from Zagreb to Sarajevo is about 55 DM. There...

  • You can fly to Sarajevo, but...

    You can fly to Sarajevo, but since this is still not the most common destination on the schedules of big air companies, I'd recommend a flight to Ljubljana or Zagreb and a car or a bus from there. Thus you can freely move around too.The already mentioned car and bus. The rail network is not operating all over the country yet. Or you may try more...
