Once you get off the base you can indulge. Beer drinking is the past time of choice. There are a few decent beers around here that are relatively cheap. The local swill is called Tuzlanski Pilsner. I would give it a miss if I were you, not so good. Lasko from Slovenia is very good as is Ojusko from Croatia.more
This is where some of the 7K muslim men and boys were killed. The black stains on the walls and ceilings are what's left of the blood and tissue that the serbs attempted to hide.read ENDGAME, an excellent book on thisand BALKAN GHOSTS which was written before the war.more

The restaurant Camdze: It is mostly fish but it's really fresh and well prepared. The prices are very reasonable, especially for foreigners. They also serve traditional Bosnian deserts like tufahiya (apples soaked in honey and stuffed with wipped cream and nuts). The only problem is that it is not actually in Tuzla, but at the lake Modrac and it's...more
Well, as you will find out, there is a great number of cafes in Tuzla and they are mostly located in the downtown pedestrian area and Korzo. Of course, you can go to a cafe somewhere else, but that's not where the people are. :) Especially in the summer, you can sit outside and watch people passing by, and believe me, there are a lot of people on...more
Latino Klub Flamenco (Kapija, formerly known as 'Leonardo' and 'Gymnasium')It's a very cool places. Awkwardly big yet pleasant, touristy yet with a home feel. Parties on weekends, ranging from pyjama parties to free dance and Spanish lessons. My favourite spot. No dress code, truly, except for certain occasions like PJ parties, although you can...more
The best way to get to Tuzla is by car or by bus. You can fly into Sarajevo and drive for about 2 1/2 - 3 hours, but I have to warn you, Bosnian mountains are not for the faint of heart, and this road is full of curves. You can also take a bus from Sarajevo, and the fare will cost you around 10 Bosnian marks (approximatly $4-5). There is a small...more
Bus is an extremely easy way to get to Tuzla. A bus leaves Zagreb about three times daily, costing 33 KM one way, and buses from Sarajevo (by Centrotrans, Bosnia's most reliable company), leave at 09.30, 10.30, 11.30, 12.30, 13.30, 16.00, 18.00 and 20.00. You can get to Sarajevo by bus from Antwerpen, Berlin (also to Tuzla), Dortmund (also to...more
Not one shop, but many. This is the best place in Tuzla to stroll, hang out and have coffee, and chat.
What to buy: There are sporting goods, clothes shops, hardware stores, electronics stores, etc.
The most important thing to know is if you want to go into a mosque, please take your shoes off, and both women and men should try not to wear anything short or skimpy. If possible, women should cover their head with a scarf, but I am sure no one will make a problem out of it. Oh, and there are no tips in cafes, but if you leave one, it will be...more
If you are going shopping to the open market, take a native with you, because there is a chance you might be ripped off, since the prices are all oral and not written and subject to bargain.Stay clear of the gypsy kids. If they notice you are foreign they will follow you for a long time until you give them money. It's best to just ignore them and...more
People of Tuzla, like in the rest of Bosnia, are very fashionable. Espeically women... So if you are going, make sure you have some nice outfits to wear even if you are just going to a cafe during the day. Obviously nothing too fancy like prom gowns, but some nice pants, skirts, dresses and shirts would do. Please try to match!:)Just regular...more
I take one suitcase filled with my clothes, and a carry-on backpack with essential items. Make sure your backpack is fairly spacious as you might want to wear for a while if you're to walk around a lot. Definately wear comfertable shoes, if you want to have the best time, plan on doing a lot of walking. Besides, nothing is that far-away anyway. In...more
