Tirana - Sarajevo (Bus)
The overland journey between Tirane and Sarajevo is not a short one, nor is it that simple! The best way to do it is by several buses. The journey may be possible in less than a day, but it really depends on how lucky you get with connecting mini-buses and taxis. A more relaxing way to make the journey would be to spend a night somewhere in Montenegro, taking advantage of the spectacular scenery.
The precise routing is up to you, and how easy it is to find connecting bus services. You should aim for a routing that is something along the lines of:
- Tirana - Shkodra
- Shkodra - Ulcnij
- Ulcnij - Podgorica
- Podgorica - Sarajevo
Travellers have reported this route to cost somewhere between €25 and €50. Unsurprisingly, tickets are not available to purchase online, as you will need to negotiate with operators directly.
