Bosnia and Herzegovina – sometimes called Bosnia-Herzegovina, often known informally as Bosnia, and usually abbreviated to BiH – is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula. Bosnia was formerly a part of Yugoslavia prior to gaining independence in 1992. It borders Croatia to the north, west and southwest, Serbia to the east, and Montenegro to the southeast. Its capital and largest city is Saravejo, while its national languages are Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian. It is home to ethnic groups (or in Bosnia and Herzegovina, they are officially known as “constituent peoples”): Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs. Bosnia and Herzegovina is internationally renowned for its natural beauty and cultural heritage that it inherited from six historical civilizations.

How to get around within Bosnia and Herzegovina

The best way to get around the country with public transport is with bus and train, although you must know that when buying a return trip bus ticket, you can only buy it with the company you bought the

ticket at; and that buses in the country are infrequent and slow, with lack of carriages even on the busy lines like Mostar-Sarajevo, Tuzla-Banja Luka and Sarajevo-Banja Luka. However, the rides are scenic, especially that Mostar-Sarajevo stretch. Meanwhile, you can also hitchhike or bike around.  

 

How to get there

If coming in by plane, one will go through Sarajevo Airport, located in the suburb of Butmir, which is relatively close to the city centre. BH Airlines, the national carrier, offers flights primarily to and from Europe, including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Prague and Skopje. Croatia Airlines, Serbia's Jat Airways, Turkish Airlines, Adria Airways, Lufthansa, and Austrian Airways are some of the other airlines that also serve Sarajevo Airport. From the airport, there’s no direct public transportation. Although there’s taxi service, it’s expensive. The most practical way to get to your destination is to take the taxi to the tram terminus at Ilidža and board the tram for the last part of your journey. Other ways of getting in are by train (to and from Croatia, Hungary, and Serbia), by car (the main routes are from the coast via Mostar to Sarajevo, and north from Sarajevo to the Croatian Border at Slavonski Brod/Slavonski Samad), by bus (most international buses arrive at the main Saravejo bus station, situated next to the railway station near the city centre), and by ferry (available from Neum to other cities on the Adriatic connecting to Croatia and other countries).
