Konjic is a town between Sarajevo and Mostar on the Neretva river in the Herzegovina region of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Understand[edit]

The town is known for Tito's bunker, a huge underground complex where the leadership of Yugoslav republic planned its atomic war command. Now it is a remnant of the cold war.

In May 2011 Tito Bunker was opened for the first edition of the Bijenale[2], the bi-anual contemporary art exhibition in the bunker.

Although the local tourist offices will say visits must be organized through them, this is not true. If you go through the tourist office, it is 10 euros per person, and they drive you to the entrance of the bunker (they don't actually do the tour). If you don't want to mess with trying to find the bunker on your own, go through one of the offices; if you can do it yourself, save the 10 euros and donate it at the bunker.

Get in[edit]

The town is accessible by both bus (approx. €5, 2011) and train (Sarajevo-Konjic & Sarajevo-Ploče) (approx. €3.5, 2011) from Sarajevo.

By car from Sarajevo, the trip takes about an hour over the A1 highway.
