      Driving from Sarajevo to Podgorica

      Bosnia and Herzegovina Oct 9, 2016 at 12:02 AM

      We shall be visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Albania next June. I've read up on the drive from Sarajevo to Podgorica (via Foca and crossing the border at Scepan Polje) and what it is like. I am trying to get a good idea of how long the drive will take and if there are any likely delays at the border. According to google maps, the drive is likely to take about 4 hours for the 229 km/142 miles. Not counting stops to take pictures ( I understand it is beautiful, mountainous terrain with often winding stretches of road),is this accurate? This is a fairly slow speed but is it likely to take longer? Will any border delay make ti longer? Thanks.

    • Getting from Sarajevo airport to city centre

      by CoweyB Online Now Mar 20, 2016 at 10:03 AM

      Dear VTers.

      I am looking forward to my very short visit to Sarajevo next week! I wanted to ask your advice if there was any regular bus service between the airport and the city centre as I can't find anything about this online.

      In respect of taxis, is there a set fare to the City Centre or do you you negotiate or just use the meter?

      A final question: is there an ATM at the airport (or a Bureau de Change) to get BAM.

      Many thanks in advance

      What happens on Statehood Day & airport delays due to fog on winter mornings

      by HenriettaStackpole Online Now Oct 22, 2015 at 9:25 AM

      I'm looking forward to visiting Sarajevo in November and I just noticed that one of the days I'm visiting, November 25, is a holiday called Statehood Day. I am curious about how the holiday will effect my visit. Should I expect closures on this day? Are there activities I could participate in?

      Also, I recently read that morning flights in winter are often delayed to fog. Anyone have experience with this? I ask because I am due to work the next morning after I return from Bosnia and I wonder if I should prepare for significant delays because I have an early morning flight.

      Thank you in advance for your replies!

      Bus from Kotor to Sarajevo

      by KateM61 Online Now Sep 1, 2013 at 9:40 AM

      I know that this is very late notice but hopefully someone can help.
      We're currently in Kotor and want to go to Sarajevo tomorrow. Is it possible to get a bus that doesn't go via Dubrovnik and/or Mostar? We found some information on the internet that said you can get buses from Niksic, over the northern Bosnia/montenegro border to Sarajevo but not sure that was reliable. If this is true, we could bus up to Niksic and then change depending on what time these buses leave.

      Thanks for any help!!!

      Road route from Užice to Sarajevo

      by Mark_Lester Online Now Nov 22, 2012 at 3:12 AM

      I am awaiting the new rail timetable for next year, and I am bracing myself for the belgrade to sarajevo service to be dropped. If that's the case I'd still like to look at alternatives to just getting a direct bus. We could get the train to Užice and may be a bus or hire a mini bus from there.It might even be possible to do some of the Sargan 8 railway.
      Does anyone know about buses from Užice to Sarajevo or portions of that route.
