    Daytrip from B. Luka to Doboj?

    by Drugness Online Now Mar 31, 2015 at 4:23 PM

    Hello all
    There is 1 train a day from B.L to Doboj. This is fine, but I can't find a way to get from Doboj to Belgrade. Can someone tell me the options for doing a daytrip from B.L to Doboj? I need about 3-4 hours in Doboj, if possible. Buses or trains are fine if possible!
    Thank you all!

    Seeking a particular museum in the B.L. area

    by Drugness Online Now Jun 28, 2012 at 3:50 AM

    Hello all

    I've been doing some online research to try to find a particular museum in Republika Srpska but the internet (as usual) is giving me several contrasting answers :)

    Have a look at this link

    Ok, some sources say this is in Banja Luka. Some others say it is in Muzej Kozara in Prijedor, and another says it's in an army barracks 'somewhere'. Do any of you knowledgeable folk know where it is exactly?!

    An outside chance is that it is somewhere in National Park Kozara but I think this is unlikely

    Perhaps I should also post this in the Prijedor forum if it's relevant.

    Thank you all again

    Hello all and merry xmas
    I'm thinkin about gettin a train from northern Bosnia to Austria as per the cities named above. Is this possible? I've tried using but it doesnt seem to recognise BL as a city ,as good a website as it is.
    Any tips on whether this route is possible? Considering the website didnt recognise BL, it did recognise Zagreb, and the journey to Salzb. isn't too long from there

  • One day sightseeing around B. L. in late autumn and hotel locations

    by I_do_not_overpack Online Now Oct 22, 2007 at 12:48 PM

    Hello: I am coming to Banja Luka for one week and will have at least one day free (Oct 28). I sure wish that I was coming in the summer because clearly the surrounding scenery is beautiful and the whitewater rafting fun. Can anyone suggest a one day excursion (not a one day hike though) outside the city for myself and how I could go about arranging it. I like historical and religious buildings and beautiful scenery.

    As well, how lively is the centre of the town? I usually prefer to stay in the centre but I will be working on Sava Kovacevica. Is there a big difference in atmosphere from being in the centre (which I am not sure is exactly where). I think from looking on the web, that I would chose the Palas otherwise as it seems to be nicely decorated, it is not too expensive and it is in the centre.

    Finally, does anyone know the bus schedule from Banja Luka to Sarajevo on Sat. I could not find it on the web. It is better than the train?

    Thanks for any advice

Some postings seem to imply that trains (my usual option) are not ideal and that coaches are best for this journey. Can anyone advise? Can I travel direct from Zagreb airport or would I need to venture into town first to catch a train/bus? Any help would be appreciated as this will be my first time to either city... Thanks
