Sarajevo is a city defined by a mixture of old and new, a city that embraces modern life whilst celebrating its incredibly rich history. To get the most from the life of the city in Bosnia Herzegovina it is well worth exploring the area by foot. However, to visit local surrounding towns and tourist sites you may well find that car hire in Sarajevo is necessary.
With Sarajevo car hire you can travel further out of the city to explore Fojnica to the West, Visoko, Vanes, Lukomir, Olovo and Bijambane, which is famed for its caves. The town of Kresevo and its Franciscan monastery are also well worth a visit. In the ancient Bosnian Kingdom you'll find both modern architecture and medieval town ruins. To enjoy views of the local landscape, take a trip to the Miljacka river or Jajce Castle, founded in the 14th century.
A day trip to the Tara River on the border of Bosnia and Montenegro or the Drina Valley demonstrates just how varied the local landscape is. However, no exploration of Sarajevo is complete without a visit to the Jahonniat Bjelasnica Mountain, situated to the south west of the city and host to alpine skiing events at the 1984 Winter Olympics.
With an average annual temperature of 56°F you should have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Sutjeska National Park in fine weather. Here you will find 17,500 hectares of wilderness and the only two remaining primeval forests to be found in Europe.
To visit such a unique and picturesque place is easy since many international airports such as London Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW) and Paris (CDG) offer flights in to Sarajevo International airport (SJJ). With a pick up Sarajevo SJG Airport is also an easy location to start your holiday, with transfers available to booked accommodation or Sarajevo car hire on hand to make life easier.
