Balkans railway reconnects cities

Train service linking Belgrade to Sarajevo re-opens for first time since conflict.

A rail link between the cities of Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Belgrade in Serbia has re-opened after nearly 18 years.

The train service was stopped after the breakout of conflict in the Balkans in the early 1990s.

While the three-carriage train is no match for the pre-war express train that once rode this line, the railway’s first 17 passengers hope its return marks more than just a symbolic gesture.
