Trebević cable car now in operation

Following the official opening ceremony on April 6, the Trebević cable car is again operational after 26 years.


Construction work at the arrival and departure stations will come to an end in about two months. Current work does not interfere with the cable car’s path.

The cable car system has 33 cabins, which can accommodate a total of 1,200 people. It can reach a speed of 5 meters per second, which means that the ride takes about seven minutes. One cabin can hold 10 people (max. 750 kilograms).

The cable system is supported by ten columns. The distance between each cabin is 150 meters, and the cars can work at 50% capacity. The horizontal distance between the cabins is seven meters.

Every cable car cabin is equipped with video cameras.

The cost of a one-way ride is 4KM for BiH citizens, and a return ticket costs 6KM. The cost of a one way ticket for tourists is 15 KM, and return ticket costs 20KM. Children under the age of seven can ride the cable car for free, those traveling with a bike will be charged 4 KM extra and all the cabins are pet-friendly.

Soon, tickets will be available at the arrival station and Vijećnica, while right now can be bought at the departure station. (More info.)

While at the top of Trebević, visitors can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Sarajevo, or take a walk in nature up to the Brus excursion site or Prvi Šumar. It is also possible to walk around the remnants of the Olympic bobsled track and Čolina Kapa observatory, and relax at one of the many hospitality facilities, such as Pino Nature, Brus, Trebevićki Raj, Level Up and Vila Andrea.

Cable car will operate every day from 09:00 to 18:00h.
