When to Go Bosnia and Herzegovina - Sarajevo
When to Go Bosnia and Herzegovina The best time to visit is spring or summer; skiers should come between December and February. The weather is a mix of Mediterranean and Central European and is more or less agreeable year round, though both summer and winter extremes can sometimes be daunting. You needn't worry about any seasonal crush of tourists just yet. Typical to the region, Bosnia has hot summers and chilly winters. Winters average a daily high around 3°C (37°F) and snow tends to linger at higher altitudes. In summer rainfall is slightly heavier but the sunny, 26°C (79°F) July days are a treat. Hercegovina has warmer winters, and hot summers, with July and August temperatures reaching 40°C at times. Springtime (April and May) is the best...

Get Around Bosnia and Herzegovina - Sarajevo
Get Around Bosnia and Herzegovina The best way to get around (if you are not with your own car, that is) is with bus or train. The network between the two is extremely extensive. Surprisingly, prices do not differ very much, neither do the travel times (bus might be slightly cheaper), but the bus network is significantly more extensive and run more frequently than trains (many train lines were damaged in the recent conflict, and have not been rebuilt to fast speeds, in addition to there being a lack of carriages and trains to provide frequent services - even on the busy lines like Mostar-Sarajevo, Tuzla-Banja Luka and Sarajevo-Banja Luka. Hitching is not advised, and walking between towns can prove dangerous (including in areas which may not have bee...

Visiting Sarajevo in Bosnia - Sarajevo
Visiting Sarajevo in Bosnia There are several ways to go to Sarajevo. One can always fly from several airports including Vienna, Ljubljana, Zagreb and Istanbul but it is rather expensive and one loses the flexibility somewhat. Train service is not fully re-established. The Sarajevo station is still partly damaged and it is not connected to any big foreign city. The only important routes are to a Croatian port and to Zenica. A train schedule from 1991 is still posted in the station. Of the destinations serviced at the time, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Banja Luka, Belgrade do not figure on the destination list anymore. Bus services are well-spread. Taking those inter-city buses seems to be a good option. I drove from Zagreb through Karlovac on to the...

Eight Wonders of Bosnia - Sarajevo
Eight Wonders of Bosnia 1. A city built and rebuilt Since its official Ottoman founding in 1461, Sarajevo has been considered one of the most important cities in the Balkans, and hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. But it will always be infamous as the site of the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, sparking World War I. Read more on Wikipedia. 2. Bridge over troubled waters Mostar's bridge across the Neretva River survived half a millennium of earthquakes, floods, and two world wars. Then, in 1993, it crumbled into the river, victim at last of the heavy shelling of modern warfare. Rebuilt in 2004, the bridge symbolizes Bosnia's rebirth. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is also the jumping-off point for bridge...
