Anyone go from Belgrade to Sarajevo. I have a sneaking suspision that there must be a bus. The train is a bit long for the actual distance, 14 hours to go about 350 kilometers.

Thanks!

This looks like it's probably what you're after; it's the branch of Eurolines for Yugoslavia (Eurolines term, not mine Smile). I haven't been able to make much sense out of it (but also haven't looked at it that much). Go to Time Table > International Transport > Prices > Bosnia & R.S. I'm guessing "km" is the Bosnian convertible mark, but I'm not sure...

Also found this whereby you could guesstimate comparable cost to/from Belgrade.

"A coach service runs from Sarajevo to Split on the Croatian coast via Mostar. There is a good connection between Zagreb and Sarejevo (about 8 hours one way, cost 26 EUR) and between Belgrade and Istocno Sarajevo (ethnic Serbian suburb of Sarajevo)."

...and this (from 2004) which states:

"bus Belgrade - Sarajevo: 7 hours (10 euros each way), several departures every day. It goes to Srpsko Sarajevo, then take local bus."

Hope that helps, generally.

I tried the main bus company in Sarajevo - centrotrans.ba - and first, it doesn't seem to be available in English (but is in German) and second, the link for international lines is under construction or something.

I'm sure there exists a bus and it is cheap - 10 KM is 5€, so that's extremely cheap but possible. I followed the eurolines link and if you need to pick one of those routes, Lukavica is the name of the Sarajevo suburb that used to be(and sometimes still is) called Srpsko Sarajevo.

There must be buses from Lukavica to Sarajevo...but I'd be hesitant to put myself at any risk of getting stuck in a town in BiH outside Sarajevo mainly because everything outside Sarajevo strikes me as rural to the point of mildly spooking me (and I lived in Sarajevo for 2 years). If you feel okay with this then go for it, but if you are wary you might try Banja Luka because it's so much bigger and although there are bound to be buses, it wouldn't be quite so odd to be stuck.

Have a good trip - I haven't been to Belgrade yet myself but have heard good things about it from people who have lived there etc.

This is as close as I have gotten: http://www.bas.co.yu/basweb_lat/redvoznje.asp. However, it doesn't seem to work. When you go would you mind finding some stuff out for me though? The departure times of the first and last busses, how long it takes, and where you get dropped off? Thanks!
