How to get from Sarajevo Airport to Mostar

Mostar is a small, picturesque city in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, mostly known for its iconic medieval old bridge over the Neretva river. Even though Mostar is a couple of hours away from the capital, if you’re travelling in the country it’s definitely worth a visit.

If you’re planning your visit directly from Sarajevo Airport, there are different ways to reach Mostar. The fastest transportation option to get there, even though a bit more costly, is by booking an airport taxi or taking one from the taxi stand at Sarajevo Airport. Alternatively, you can get there by bus or train but there isn’t a direct connection for either one.

Taking the bus to Sarajevo city centre and then the train to Mostar is the second fastest and cheapest option to reach your destination.
