What a beautiful city. It’s just one of those places that take you on another level and you’re probably going to be very sad when you’re going to return back home. Well, regardless of that, Sarajevo is a great spot for a vacation. As you might know, Bosnia and Herzegovina is a place that’s covered with snow for the better part of the year. And, if you’re someone that has yet to see snow in their life, then you’re in for a huge treat. Other than that, the city has ancient Islamic history and has a ton of buildings that are worth a visit. The Sarajevo Tunnel also boasts of the great civilization that once occupied the place before we were born.
Most of you will probably be coming in on a flight that’s landing in the Sarajevo International Airport. The rental service is almost next to the airport. It’s about 400 meters away from the terminals and it will take you 5 minutes to walk there. Sound easy right? But, like we said earlier, the snow in Bosnia and Herzegovina makes it slightly difficult for foreigners to drive in the city. So, to make your job easy, we’ll explain a few special driving laws and speeding limits so you know exactly what being behind the wheel in Bosnia is all about.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a place that faces a great number of fatalities every year due to traffic accidents. So, saying that they’re serious about over-speeding would be a huge understatement. A list of the places and the permitted speed limits is given below:
|Inhabited Places||35 mph|
|Uninhabited Places||50 mph|
The country also has some other laws that you’ve probably never heard of. Children can not sit in the front seat if they’re below 12 years of age. Mobile phones are 100% illegal while driving. It doesn’t matter whether you text or call. There’s absolutely no reason for you to check your phone in the middle of the road. According to the law, if there is a call that you definitely need to receive, then move to the side of the road, park and then pick up the phone. A lot of accidents lead the government of Bosnia and Herzegovina to take these precautions and they expect tourists to follow them.
You need to be extra vigilant while driving on the streets of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The blood alcohol level is 0.03%. 50 mg of alcohol is allowed every 100 ml of blood. The police can implicate heavy fines if you fail the breath test.
As we said earlier, Sarajevo knows how to keep its visitors busy. There is so much to do in the city and you’d be amazed at how fast time flies there.
