National & International Buses[edit]

Bosnia & Herzegovina is well connected to other countries in Europe. The main bus station of Sarajevo has its own website.[1] The main provider of international bus connection in Bosnia & Herzegovina is Eurolines.[2] There are routes to Croatia, Germany, Austria, France, Netherlands, Montenegro, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Serbia. Despite Bosnia & Herzegovina's geographical closeness to Serbia, there is only one bus a day, which takes more than 8 hours due to the lack of proper roads.[3]
