Life preserving tips !

Additionaly, bellow is a couple of advices that Intermove team is collected for those of you that are planning to relocate to Sarajevo that will make you stay in this beautiful city acceptable. Please keep yourself in accordance with these tips because it will prove to be life preserving because life without these knowledge is impossible for any habitant of Sarajevo.

  1. If you're going to a certain place with tram, arrive a little bit earlier to the waiting spot because sometimes it tends to be late.
  2. Keep your purse safe in tram from robbers, keep it close
  3. If an older person, mother with baby or pregnant woman comes in tram or in any other public transportation vehicle, offer your seat otherwise they will nag you or make a drama (most do that for some reason). Eatherway don,t be a redneck.
  4. Don't play loud music in your flat, somebody will report you. Instead try to know you neighbours and you will be pleasantly surprised.
  5. The coffee is the cheapist drink when going out. Also it is the most popular drink, a trade mark of Sarajevo.
  6. Traffic is horrible around 4–5 pm because people return from jobs. God help you if you are suck in traffic in that time.
  7. Wait for discounts in shopping stores, they can drop 50–70%
  8. Always carry an umbrella in Spring and Autumn (small prefered). Luckily you can buy umbrella almost in every street corner in the city center.
  9. Most people speak English and feel free to ask them, but don't expect a teen to know where is your bus stop for x town or an elder where is that x bar.
  10. People are all in hurry here. Mondays are the worst, so have some patience with the mornings: arrive especially early wherever you should be otherwise you'll be late
  11. Trams usually break down and stop when there is no eletricity, so in those cases take the Centrotrans bus (ticket 1.60 KM, goes from Ilidza to Vijecnica). Don,t rely on the public transport, it is not worth it.
  12.  Saturday is the day for going out and shopping. Sunday is for trips and preparing for work
  13.  Please note that people of Sarajevo love to enjoy life, so prepare yourself for relaxing in the coffie bars and for frequently going out.
  14.  Also, prepare yourself for the tone of history.
  15.  And, for the end, learn that you can be in the top of the mountin in about 30 minutes from the city center.
