Transportation to Trebević

You can get from Sarajevo to Trebević either on foot or by car or taxi through the city’s neighborhoods on the left bank of the Miljacka River or via Vraca. However, the most popular way of getting there is by Sarajevo cable car going every day from Bistrik to this mountain.

A road leading from Stari Grad (Austrijski trg, Bistrik) to Trebević  is currently not that well charted on the most frequently used digital maps (Google Maps, Via Michelin, etc.), so it often happens that tourist go astray in the narrow streets at the foot of Trebević.

If going by car, you will need to start from the last trolleybus station and follow our instructions to the traffic light located at the entrance to the Brdo džamija tunnel, on the Put mladih muslimana Street, where you would turn left to Terzibašina Street and follow the instructions until you exit to the road leading further left to Trebević or right to the entrance to Sunnyland.

Transportation to Ravna planina

Ravna planina is the youngest ski center in destination Sarajevo that is located in Gornje Pale, at 20km from the center of Sarajevo and 2km from Pale. This year, there is no organized transportation to this location, so you can get there only by car or taxi.

If departing from Sarajevo, you will need to drive towards Pale until you reach the entry point to this town. On the crossroads located at the entrance to Pale, you will go straight forward towards Prača. After two kilometers, you will reach the marked turning spot to the right towards the Ravna planina ski center.

Taxi services

Sarajevo has some of the cheapest taxi rates in Europe and several private taxi companies operate in the city 24 hours a day.

We are recommending Sarajevo Taxi company (Phone: 1515 or +387 33 660 666), whose stands are clearly marked around the entire city and the starting fare is 1.90 KM. All vehicles use a taxi meter and the driver will issue a receipt upon request.

The regular rate per kilometer is 1.20 KM, and it is possible to negotiate a rate with the driver in advance for distances longer than 25 kilometers.

All legitimate taxis are required to have a “TAXI” sign on top and license plates with “TA” on them, and 1 KM is charged for each piece of baggage.

If you want to use taxi services to the mountains, make an agreement with the driver in advance about the price, since it is a ride outside the city area.

Taxi fares can vary, depending on traffic, but they should not be much higher than the following:
• Sarajevo – Igman/Bjelašnica: cca 60 KM
• Sarajevo – Jahorina: cca 60 KM
• Baščaršija – Trebević: 15-20 KM
