I would like to hike in one of these mountains in summer but there is no public transport in summer. There is transport only until Pale, halfway between Sarajevo and Jahorina. Does anybody know the price of the taxi and if it is worth going to these mountains in summer for hiking taking into consideration the price of the taxi? Which is the most interesting? Can I find cheap accommodation (sobe) so that I don't have to sleep in Sarajevo?
Hi! Can anyone give me advice on how to travel from Ohrid, Macedonia, to Mostar by public transportation? Which is the most convenient way/route? Are there any night buses? Tried to find info online but thought it’s better to ask here if anyone has practical info to share. Would be highly appreciated, thanks! I am travelling with my 5-year old daughter.
Hi - our family of four (two adults and kids age 3 and 6) will be in Mostar for a few days in early July and we are looking for a day hike somewhere not too far from Mostar. The kids are good at climbing, so steep slopes are fine, but nothing that would take more than, say 4 hours round trip. Blidinje NP seems gorgeous but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out where the hiking paths might begin. Anywhere else? We will have a car with us. Thanks!
I'm doing the following cycling route across 3 weeks. What do you think of my itinerary? Feel free to just comment on Bosnia if that's where you know best.
It's going to be about 550 km (342 miles) across 3 weeks. So on average about 30 km a day (17 miles a day).
I currently cycle about 60km a week and go to the gym 5 times a week and run 5km once a week. So I do keep fit. I'm aiming to increase the amount I cycle to 100km a week in the lead up to this event.

My wife (Hema) and I went on an eleven-day tour of Bosnia & Herzegovina, from 06/10/2017 to 17/10/2017, which we deem as a great time of our lives.
All our apprehensions about going to a place that is generally known in India as not a usual place to visit vanished as we were still in the air approaching the runway in the airport in Sarajevo on 06/10/2017! The spectacular topography of the region around Sarajevo, that was visible from the aircraft, removed all apprehensions and fear in our…
I am an experienced traveler with a rental car hitting Croatia for the past 10 years. Was in Mostar 9 years ago or before the bridge was rebuilt. Thinking of a 2-3 day trip this time starting in Mostar and bus or train to the capital (3 hours by train). Is the capital a not to miss destination? Food? I love adventure, exploring country side and anything unique. I have been to 50 countries so always looking for new adventure. Can I do this in 2 days? Is a rental car safe to park in Mostar…
I plan on cycling the Balkans for 3 weeks in August. Starting and finishing at Dubrovnik.
In terms of distance, I should be ok cycling 40km per day.
I definitely want to go into Montenegro. I then have a few options:
1) Go into Albania and to Tirana
2) Go into Bosnia to Mostar and/or Sarajevo (travelling inland through Montenegro and maybe stopping at Durmitor National Park on route).
3) Maybe get to Serbia
Do you have any advice? If I chose Bosnia, I'd visit Mostar and Sarajevo (any any…
