A car rental from Sarajevo is an ideal place to start your trip on Bosnia and Herzegovina with the M18 connecting you to the North and South, the A1 Northeast to Zelenica and the M5 running East.
Sarajevo is a compact city and the airport is only five miles from the city center via the M18. Many of the boulevards and streets are made up of single lane traffic or one-way systems. For its size Sarajevo has many famous landmarks that help you to navigate your journey. It is a safe city for driving, parking in the center is easy with a number of underground car parks that offer extra security.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a mountainous country, covered in forest and offering spectacular scenery. Many main routes such as the highway from Mostar to Sarajevo are now have excellent quality following restoration in 2009, but be aware smaller roads may be not be in such good condition. The country is still clearing landmines left from the war 1992-1995, so if you wind up driving in more rural areas strictly remain on paved roads. Like with any mountainous region weather conditions are also a factor to take into consideration. Be prepared that roads can be closed because of landslides and fog, and in higher altitudes winter driving can be hazardous due to ice and snow.
A city of historical turbulence, Sarajevo now has a relaxed vibe and a growing tourist industry. People in the city are known for their friendliness and hospitality and the popular cafe culture provides endless opportunity for unwinding. The cuisine in Sarajevo is delicious with much of the produce being organic, high quality and affordable. We recommend you try the Bosnian coffee served in copper pots, and in the evening a wine made from Žilavka and Blatina grapes grown in the vineyards of Herzegovina.
Sarajevo has been developed during the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia making its buildings and cultural heritage uniquely diverse. The old oriental bazaar, Bascarsija is the heart of Sarajevo's Ottoman past and the cultural center of the city. From the marketplace you can see the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, one of the most important buildings from the Ottoman era. While here don't miss the Moricá Han, a 500-year-old roadside inn, now a restaurant with a lively courtyard. The Miljaka River runs through the center of Sarajevo with many famous bridges joining the north to the south. The Latin Bridge is the oldest and infamously the assassination of Franz Ferdinand took place here.
The countryside surrounding Sarajevo is stunning. The Skakavac waterfall is only 8 miles north of the city, it falls 98 meters and is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We recommend the about twohour walk after parking your rental car in the village Nahorevo, it's a fair climb but there are plenty of resting stops along the way. If you would prefer a tour guide there are many companies offering trips from Sarajevo.
If you want to explore some of the beautiful towns in the hills around Sarajevo try Konjic. It is a picturesque town that stands beneath the Prenj Mountain. The Konjic Bridge is one of the best-preserved Ottoman structures in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Just below the town lies the Jablaničko Lake, a popular tourist destination where you can swim, boat and fish.
Along with increasing tourism and a strong manufacturing industry, Sarajevo is also home to Bosnia and Herzegovina's central bank. Business in the city is picking up again since reaching its peak in the 1980s. Established in 1846 Sarajevska Pivara brewery is one of the country's leading producers. It is based in the oldest industrial plant in Bosnia and Herzegovina and can be visited by appointment.
