The capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina sometimes referred to as the Jerusalem of Europe, is located in the hearts of the Balkans surrounded by Dinaric Alps. Sarajevo is a relatively small city, and most of the city landmarks are easily reachable on foot. The most popular attractions are Bascarsija, Sacred Heart Cathedral, Clock Tower, City Hall, and Latin Bridge.
Sarajevo has excellent connections to the major cities including Mostar, Foca, Banja Luka and Tuzla. The corridor 5C passes through the city continuing to Budapest on the north and the Adriatic Sea on the south.
Railway, tramway, bus and taxi transportation
Since 1885, the electric tramway operates during the day and at nighttime. Besides the seven tramway lines, there are five trolleybus lines and many bus routes. Currently, public transportation is undergoing renovation and modernisation.
The train is very convenient for intercity travels, as well as to the neighbouring countries. There are frequent connections to the other cities across the country, as well as to Zagreb and Belgrade. The trains are not fast, but they offer a comfortable ride.
Sarajevo bus station handles domestic and international bus connections. Several buses per day run from Sarajevo to Mostar and Banja Luka, while one bus line per day is available to Graz, Vienna, Split and Dubrovnik. For intercity travels, a surcharge for luggage applies.
Sarajevo taxi service offers an efficient way to get around the city. City taxis charge by the meter, and you can hail a taxi along the street or outside the airport, train or bus station. However, city taxi can get extremely expensive due to illegal drivers and scams. Make sure to set the rate before entering the vehicle.
