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.
