Hitchhiking out

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

Southwest towards Mostar, Croatia (Dubrovnik) E 73, M-17

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.

East towards Serbia E 761

To go east take the tram to Bascarsija and you will see the road which seems to go into the hills along the river. Bascarsija is actually in the middle of the city so don't make the mistake to board the train in Bascarsija and going to the other end station just to relies you where right from the beginning. trash:Sarajevo WikiPedia:Sarajevo

Southeast toward Montenegro It is easy you just google street Garaplina it is up on hill not so far away from Bačaršija few minutes of walk. At end of Garaplina street, just above is traffic light and you are on this street Put mladih Muslimana, that road is going outside of town and to direction of Montenegro. A lot of trucks is going on this road, so you can ask and hitchhike on road near traffic light and ask drivers when lights is red and they need to stop, if you do not have luck you just go straight and after 50 meters on right side is petrol station and you can also hitchhike there. Go in direction Trnovo and Foća, local people said to us not to go in Goražde because it not much traffic there. At border with Montenegro on Hum crossing is not so many cars but you can catch ride there and road to border is very bad, full of wholes.(ask drivers on border, first car pick us up)
