Sarajevo is the Capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
North towards Mrkonjic-Grad or Banja Luka, Croatia (Osijek), Hungary
To hitch north take tram #3 towards the southern outskirts of the town Ilidza. The road north is marked with a sign towards Mostar and Zenica. Show the tram driver Zenica on a map and he'll tell you which stop to get off on. You'll see an overpass that looks like a freeway on-ramp. Get up on that road and then walk north about 1km past a grocery store on the right. That will get you past much of the inner-city traffic and to places with more open area for cars to stop.
Second advice: take bus #23 to the last stop, Rajlovac. It gets you on the main road out of town, too, but a bit more north than tram #3. You then nearly don't have to walk.
Road and motorway numbers change often and/or are not posted along the way, so once you get out of town, to get to Mrkonjic-Grad and Banja Luka, head towards Travnik, then Jajce. For Pecs, towards Tuzla.
Note from Nalddo : "if you use the spot above, you will first have to hitch to a junction North of town where the road splits in 2. You can get to this junction directly. From downtown, take bus 21 to the last stop, in Vogosca. From there, continue walking a few minutes on the road until you reach a bridge. This is where the road M18 to Tuzla and motorway A1 to Zenica split. You can thumb easily to either direction. To hitch on the highway, I recommend walking a few more minutes to reach the paytoll."
From the city centre, take tram three in the direction Ilidza. After about 15 minutes, get off at the stop right after a small group of petrol stations located to your left and right. There is a bus stop here where you can stop a car, and as it is just after a stoplight cars will not be going very fast. Because of the large amount of suburban traffic, using a sign is recommended.
