Mostar is located in southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the main regional road M17, 60 km away from Adriatic coast. It is situated under mountains Velez, Hum and Cabulja, in the valley of Neretva river at 60 to 80 meters above sea level.

Mostar Airport

It is a small airport with no many planes flying in (phone: + 387 36 350 212, web: www.mostar-airport.ba). The ones that do fly in tend to be charter flights for Catholic pilgrims to Medugorje. Generally, it is much easier to fly into the capital Sarajevo or to find flights into Split or Dubrovnik in neighbouring Croatia. There is a taxi service to the city centre, which is only 3-4km away. A taxi ride to the centre costs 10-15KM depending on the hotel and the amount of luggage. The bus service from Mostar Airport runs at 06.45, 07.30, 14.00 and 15.30 from Monday to Saturday and at 07.30, 14.00 and 15.30 on Sunday. Most taxi drivers accept euros, and it is best to change your currency to KM once youre in town.


Split Airport

You can get a flight to Split (mostly via Zagreb) from any major city in Europe. From there, it is a three- to four-hour drive to Mostar. There is a shuttle service from the airport to the bus station, from where buses go to Mostar at least five times per day. You need Kuna, the Croatian currency, to buy your bus ticket. You can get your Kuna at the airport, where the post office usually offers better exchange rates than any of the various airport banks.


Trains

The trains are cheap and comfortable, and the schedule is simple:
Sarajevo - Mostar 7:05; 18:20 at the price of 9,90 KM for a single ticket.


Buses

Local transport is excellent in and around Mostar. Mostar Bus, located at the main bus and railway station, covers the town and most of the surrounding areas (Capljina, Pocitelj, Blagaj) with routes that run all day long. Bus fares within the city are usually 1KM for a one-way trip within the city limits, regardless of how far the destination. The Mostar Bus office in the main bus station is helpful and has current schedules (phone: + 387 36 552 025; web: www.autobusni-kolodvor.com).



Taxis

Taxi rates are standard: 3KM to start and 1KM for each additional kilometer. As Mostar is tucked neatly into a valley and fairly compact, a taxi anywhere around town shouldn't cost more than 10KM.
