my friends and I are planning a route to the balkans for this july/august. Our favorite route at the moment would bring us from budapest to belgrad. From serbia we would like to travel to Split, Croatia with a stopp in Sarajevo. Destinations from there on are Zagreb and Ljubjlana.
There seems to be great change in the serbian railsystem and from budapest to belgrad as well as to sarajevo and split there seem to be no train routes. Do any of you may know if they are likely to finish the rails for this summer? At least from Budapest to Belgrad?
If we would take busses to these destinations, are these gonna be paid for with the interrail planner? If not, do you guys have any tips on how to travel from Budapest to Split in another way? Or from Belgrad to Split? What are your experiences on travelling in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegowina?
