Banja Luka is a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the capital of Republika Srpska.
South towards Sarajevo, Mostar E 661
Walk south along the main road. After a while, the main road merges with the bypass. Continue walking for about 1 km. After a bridge over the river, at the end of the town, there is a bus stop which makes a great hitchhiking spot.
Also, if you don't want to walk, you can take bus number 8 from the city center (1.60 BAM / ~0,8€) and get off where the road enters the canyon. There is a small petrol station there and few hundred meters behind it there is a large bus stop where you can easily hitchhike. Although Banja Luka is a capital of Serbian Republic, you’d better write your sign in Latin alphabet because many people there can't read Cyrillic.
North towards Gradiška E M16
Take the bus 19 from the city center (1.80BAM / 0.90€) and stop at the bus station named "Raskrsnica IGK". Stand there thumb up with your sign. There is a round about just before and the traffic is really slow. There is also plenty of space for a car or a truck to stop.
I've catched a ride straight to Gradiška within 15 minutes.. (February 2019)Anarkokaosfromhell
