The Islamic, Orthodox, Catholic and Judaic influences and religious traditions live on side by side here, in the formerly contested capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina set against the misty backdrop of the Dinaric Alps.

The tram system also runs as far out as the suburb of Ilidza. The bus number 31E is the most efficient service and runs throughout the city every half hour until midnight. For travelling in the inner city of Sarajevo, trams, trolleys and buses are the best choice. If you want to go up in the hills or reach a specific destination a bit further out, the mini buses are recommended. You can buy tickets in kiosks or from the driver. When travelling on trams you have to validate the ticket in a machine on board the tram. When you buy the ticket from the driver he validates it for you. A single ticket is valid for one journey and doesn't have a time limit. There is also a daily ticket that is valid on all kinds of public transport (except bus line 31E).


You find taxi stands all over the city and you can hail one from the street. There are a lot of different taxi companies and some drivers overcharge when they notice you are a tourist. To avoid that, always check that the driver starts the meter before departure. Sarajevo Taxi +387 33 660 666 Žuti Taxi +387 33 663 555 Boss Taxi +387 33 531 200
