It is risky to park on unlit streets and you should definitely be sure not to leave any valuable items in clear view inside your car.
Parking in “No Parking” zones will be met with fines and your car could even be towed.
Sarajevo has three parking zones, “Parkomats” have been installed in all public parking areas and parking on these must be paid for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as well as on holidays.
The rate for parking in Zone 0 and Zone 1 is 2KM per hour and the rate for Zone 2 is 1KM per hour. There is a difference between Zone 0 and Zone 1 in that Zone 0 permits a maximum parking time of two hours.
Zone 0 takes in nine streets in the very center of town: Aščiluk, Branilaca Sarajeva, Ćemaluša, Ćumurija, Despićeva, Gimnazijska, Hadži Ristića, Kulovića, Radićeva, as well as Safvet Bega Bašagića to Petke, Sagrdžije to Ćemerlina and Zelenih Beretki.
Nulta zona obuhvata devet ulica užeg gradskog jezgra: Aščiluk, Branilaca Sarajeva, Ćemaluša, Ćumurija, Despićeva, Gimnazijska, Hadži Ristića, Kulovića, Radićeva, Safvet bega Bašagića do ulice Petke, Sagrdžije do ulice Ćemerlina i ulica Zelenih beretki.
Zone 1 covers public parking areas within Sarajevo Canton, which includes 74 streets in Stari Grad Municipality and Centar Municipality, and Zone 2 takes in 78 streets.
Until now, parking was paid for until 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays, and Sundays and holidays were free.
