Well, it's 4 hours by regular buses. Because they stop in every little
city on the way. But by rented but it's more likely to be 3 hours
(with stop) !!!. I understand, it's a trip. But it's a Day Trip too.

I'm actually only offering this as alternative option and if there is
enough interest i'm willing to help and to organize this visit for all
of those who wish to visit Sarajevo.
In this case i don't see Sarajevo as "my place" and i'm not doing this
because of me! Please understand that. Sarajevo is one of most
interesting places in this region and worth visiting. Weather it's
because of it's Sarajevo's very rich history, culture diversities,
good food, Sarajevo Film Festival or just good pubs.

I don't see it as wasting my time. I'm here for those who are
interested. I'm in position to organize that and i believe that it
would be very pleasant Day Trip.
Last year after DC10 in NYC i stayed 15 more days in USA and visited
Boston-WashingtonDC-Orlando-Miami... all that in 15 days. I know that
going over see is not every year opportunity for me so i tried to use
it as much as possible. And if i knew how Day Trip would be organized
last year i would most likely use that day to visit few museums in
NYC. So, i know that there are people that share my opinion and those
who don't think like that.
So i don't see it as a big deal to offer this.
