In Sutjeska National Park we use Hotel Mladost. This hotel has recently been reconstructed and provides very basic but comfortable accommodation. Rooms are private, with en-suite bathrooms, Wi-Fi and the usual modern comforts.
At Tara Rafting Camp we will stay at simple wooden bungalows next to the river where you will enjoy the sound of water and the campfire - and definitely have one of the best nights on your Balkan adventure! The bungalows are basic and relatively small with 2-3 beds and bedding. Toilets and showers are shared.

Taxis in Sarajevo are among the cheapest in Europe and a few taxi companies in the city operate 24 hours a day. There is a Sarajevo Taxi rank at the entrance to the airport near Terminal B.Taxis also stop along the wide street near the airport, so you catch a cab at almost any moment as they pass by.
