Customer Travel Tip: Go on Neno's free walking tour. Triple check which station your bus leaves from - especially if you are going to Belgrade.

Disliked: Nothing particular to complain about - except that the bus we booked was leaving from a different station than the company told us. We got a refund though.

Backpacking / gap year City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: -

Liked: The city is very compact, and easy to navigate. It is full of interesting buildings, museums and galleries, as well as some fantastic tea shops (Franz and Sophie and Cajdzinica Dzirlo both brilliant) and restaurants (Barhana and Avlija). It is also very incredibly friendly, with good bars/nightlife (Club Monument especially) and most things are good value for money.

Disliked: Be careful with taxi journeys, as we were ripped off very badly on one occasion. That said, our next three were all cheap and the drivers very friendly.

Customer Travel Tip: I would suggest getting money out before you arrive if you are going to the train / bus station. If you don't get money out there is no obvious ATM/money exchange; taxi drivers will approach you and tell you there are none in the vicinity and you will need to get a cab to get money out. This is a lie, go into the post office which is next door and you can change money there.

Liked: So much culture and history, I learnt a lot in the city. It has a really good vibe. isn't too touristy and friendly locals.

Disliked: The public transport is not very clear at all, you will often need to ask someone for help.

Customer Travel Tip: If you are here on a Monday night and would like a truly local night life experience you must go to Kino Bosna! However, it's not an 'all night venue', so get there early. By 9.30pm it is packed with locals; be sure to introduce yourself to at least one!

Liked: I've been to 19 countries in Europe and many more cities. I'm a prolific repeat offender of this city, this was the sixth time I returned, because there is just something so special about Sarajevo! The warm, friendly and generous Bosnian people is a bug part of what makes this city so wonderful! Secondly, there is the food and local cuisine is to die for!!! There is always something to do, whether you enjoy the outside cafe culture, eating out, cool bars or live music venues, you will find it here.

Disliked: There is nothing to dislike about this wonderful city.
