The city of Sarajevo is the Capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and one of the 10 cities that must be visited in Europe according to Lonely Planet Guides. It is located 270 km/160 miles from Dubrovnik.

It was founded half a millennium ago with the arrival of Ottomans (Turkish Center, Fountain, Mosques, and covered Bazaar).

Sarajevo was also ground zero of World War 1 (Prince Franz Ferdinand was assassinated crossing Miljacka River in the center of Sarajevo in 1914), it was home to the Winter Olympics 1984 when the whole world got to know this place. Unfortunately, it also suffered greatly in the 90s being under siege for more than 3 years and heavily damaged in the 1992-1995 War, a lot of which can be seen today. Drive from Dubrovnik takes about 4 hours and 15 mins.

Dubrovnik is Sarajevo’s twin city and the two cities have been connected for centuries in trade and warm neighboring ties. Even today, the hills around Sarajevo are one of the favorite skiing spots for Dubrovnik people (only 4 hour drive away from Dubrovnik).

Our tour starts at 5:30 AM (it is optimum timing to avoid any crowds in and out of Sarajevo), driving first along the Croatian coast and then into Bosnia near the village of Ravno, passing the Serbian part of Bosnia (Ljubinje) and through medieval cities of Stolac and Mostar, stopping along the way for restroom/toilette/breakfast and continuing up the Neretva River passing Jablanica, Konjic all the way to Sarajevo.

In Sarajevo, you are greeted by our partner local licensed guide who will take you on a private tour of the city, where you will learn about all the interesting facts and visit all the major sights of Sarajevo. After the tour, we suggest you have some free time for lunch and Turkish (Bosnians called it “Bosnian”) coffee with a cube of sugar to dip into while soaking up all the sounds of the bustling metropolis.

At about 13:30 we will continue towards Mostar, the bridge city where guests will have some free time to take photos of the 16ct bridge, destroyed in the recent war and reconstructed to the very last detail, or to have a tea or beer overlooking the river Neretva.

Our departure towards Dubrovnik would be around 16:45 and with expected arrival in Dubrovnik at about 19:15 or later due to traffic and border conditions.

Sarajevo day trip from Dubrovnik was fantastic

We had an incredible day trip to Sarajevo and Mostar with Filip. Everything about the trip was smooth and easy, including all logistics.

Dubrovnik to Sarajevo in 1 day – don’t miss it!

As we only had 1 day spare to visit Sarajevo, we chose to do it with Dubrovnik Day Tours as they were able to accommodate what we wanted to see.

Doria took us on a day tour to Sarajevo and Mostar. It was a long day, but Baldo expertly drove and guided us through Herzegovina and the beautiful Bosnian mountains to the two fabulous cities.

Great private tours experience

My parents and I have recently did 2 day trips to Sarajevo and Montenegro. Both trips were well planned and our tour guide was awesome. Had a great time.
