Getting around Bosnia-Herzegovina: Transportation Tips

Bosnia-Herzegovina isn’t the easiest country to get around, since much of its transport infrastructure – particularly the rail network – was damaged during the war. Things are improving, however, and decent bus services will almost always be able to get you where you want to go; it’ll just take a little longer than you might expect – see bhtourism.ba for schedules. Also note that connections between the Federation and the Republika Srpska aren’t regular.

There are also a few railway lines across the country, though severe underfunding means that most trains are too slow or irregular to be worth considering; the one exception is the twice-daily route linking Sarajevo and Mostar, which is fabulously scenic.
