Get to the city by:

  • Take tram or taxi to the Ilidza Terminus; take tram to the city centre from there.
  • Taxi drivers will overcharge and be unwilling to negotiate.

By Train: One line takes Budapest, Belgrade, Osijek and Pecs. It takes 105 KM (currency, not distance) to Belgrade. There are two trains daily to Zagreb via Zenica, Doboj and Banja Luka. Tickets cost 22 – 26 KM. The Sarajevo-Mostar-Ploce line is one of the most scenic in Europe. Costs 9 KM. Sarajevo is further incredibly well connected by road to most major European destinations, and the scenery is frequently awesome.


Trams, buses and taxis are the main way to get around. Each time you change a public transport you’ll have to get a new ticket. It’s best to get a map of Sarajevo from the bookstores downtown (the maps are very good). Don’t bother asking of directions; for all their friendliness, the locals don’t have a clue what is where. Worst luck scenario, they’ll amiably point you in the wrong direction. USE THE MAP.
