We are a 6-8 minute walk from the Sarajevo Cathedral. If your pack is heavy or if Sarajevo's hillside neighborhoods don't tickle your fancy, grab a cab from behind the Cathedral or the Eternal Flame for less than 1.50€.

***Inform all cab or shuttle drivers to drop you at the top of Pehlivanuša by the French Ambassador's residence if they don't know the street number.***

+ From the Railway Station & Main Bus Station:
Tram #1 leaves from directly in front of the Railway Station every 20-30 mins. Pay 1.60KM at the ticket window or 1.80KM to the tram driver, then make sure to stamp your ticket in the machines available at the front and back of the tram. Take the tram about 20 minutes to the 'Cathedral' stop. Exit the tram and turn right up the hill. Walk straight up that street and you'll find us on the left after about 6-8 minutes walking. Taxis cost no more than 5€ / 10KM direct with the meter on - be careful as they often try to trick tourists into a 15KM flat fee. Flag a cab from the street rather than selecting one from the taxi queue. If you prefer to walk the whole way, it should take you about 40 minutes.

+ From the East Bus Station:
Most buses from Serbia and Montenegro drop you off at the distant Istočno Bus Station in Republika Srpska. Public transit connections take well over 30 mins to reach the old town via bus #103, but these are your cheapest option. Pay the driver 1.80KM for a ticket and take the bus to the last stop - Trg Austria. Walk through town to the Cathedral and up from there. A taxi direct will cost about 7€ / 15KM on the meter. Walking not recommended.

+ From the Airport:
At this point, taxi services pretty much have a monopoly on transportation from the Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ). Expect to pay about 10€ / 20KM. If you are traveling with a cell, call Red Taxi (+38733760600) for cheaper rates than the Airport Taxis. Alternatively, send us an email to book a shuttle or get advice on how to make the journey via public transit and a good little bit of walking.
