A special tourist train “Sarajevo Express” arrived in Banja Luka, full of young enthusiastic Czechs, which will in the period from 22nd to 29th of August travel through Bosnia and Herzegovina.
They will visit the most important places in this country – after Banja Luka, they will visit Mostar, Capljina, Konjic and Sarajevo.
It is currently not possible to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina from abroad by regular rail connections. The arrival of “Sarajevo Express” from the Czech Republic is therefore an extraordinary event that can show the potential of rail transport for tourism development.
The Czech Republic is one of the countries with the highest railway network density in the world, and the use of trains for tourist travel is very popular here.
The trip “Sarajevo Express” is organized by a group of enthusiasts from the VlakFest project. They own several sleeping cars, which they reconstructed themselves and organize trips around the Czech Republic and abroad with them, Klix.ba writes.
