Sarajevo is the Capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Hitching out

North towards Mrkonjic-Grad or Banja Luka, Croatia (Osijek), Hungary

To hitch north take tram 3 towards the southern outskirts of town Ilidza. The road north is marked with a sign towards Mostar and Zenica. Show the tram driver Zenica on a map and he'll tell you which stop to get off on. You'll see an overpass that looks like a freeway onramp. Get up on that road and then walk north about 1km past a grocery store on the right. That'll get you past much of the innercity traffic and to places with more open area for cars to stop.

Second advice: take bus 23 to last stop, "Rajlovac". It gets you on the main road out of town, too, a bit norther than tram 3. You then nearly don't have to walk.

Road and highway numbers change often and/or are not posted along the way, so once you get out of town, to get to Mrkonjic-Grad and Banja Luka, head towards Travnik, then Jajce. For Pecs, towards Tuzla.

Southwest towards Mostar, Croatia (Dubrovnik) (E73/M-17)

From the city center, take tram three in the direction Ilidza. After about 15 minutes, get off at the stop right after a small group of petrol stations located to your left and right. There is a bus stop here where you can stop a car, and as it is just after a stoplight cars will not be going very fast. Because of the large amount of suburban traffic, using a sign is recommended.

East towards Serbia (E761)

To go east take the tram to Bascarsija and you will see the road which seems to go into the hills along the river
