I have read that the train trip from Sarajevo to Mostar should be very scenic. A post on this site some months ago however said that the service was closed due to Work on the tracks. Does anyone know if this is still the case? Do you know if and how tickets can be booked in advance.
I am going to Greece with my girlfriend. I have more time than she does so I plan on flying to the Balkan 2 weeks earlier, around May 23rd, and then traveling by land to meet her in Athens. I bought the LP Southern Europe book, though it is not as informative as I would like about bus times. I like to play it by ear when traveling and I find bus more flexible than train. From the LP it looks like I might not need bus reservations since it will not be the peak season. I was looking for…
Hello all! I would like to know where can I go to listen to some sevdah music in Mostar (or in other locations, but preferably in Mostar). When I visited a few years ago I was very lucky: a local friend told me it would not be possible as there are no live performances regularly but we went out for a drink and by sheer luck the band playing in the venue ended with a few sevdah songs. This time I would love to go to a place knowing some sevdah would be heard.
We would ideally like to drive from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik (via Mostar) - but would also be willing to hire a taxi/driver for the relevant days.
Can anyone recommend a rental car company that is open to this? The standard ones are coming up at exorbitant prices (I presume due to the Croatia drop off)
Alternatively, can anyone recommend a taxi company/driver service? With any idea of prices?
Hi, I'm thinking of traveling to the Balkans after having already spent 3 months in Spain. I'm an American, and with my passport I can stay in the Schengen Zone for a maximum of 90 days. If I travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina (which is not part of the EU) and try crossing into Croatia (which is part of the EU) by bus or train, do you think there is a chance of being denied entry (or affecting future travel in Europe)?
I'm planning some adventures through Croatia, BiH, Montenegro and possible Serbia in April - May this year. I've written an itinerary as far as Sarajevo but am having trouble finding info on transport onwards to Budva or Kotor. I'm not particularly keen to head to Podgorica and I'll already have been to Dubrovnik (would like to avoid back-tracking) so was wondering if anyone knew if a Sarajevo to Budva or Kotor journey was possible? I'd asked the hostel I'm looking at and they said…
I'm planning on going to Bosnia and Herzegovina in September and want to go to Montenegro and Albania whilst I'm there. I have about two weeks holiday time so plenty of time to visit the 3 capitals. Just wondering what is the best way to travel between the countries? Also, are all 3 worth visiting? I'd love to get any tips. Thanks =)
