One of the most beautiful and scenic rail routes in Europe, from Ploče in Croatia to Sarajevo via Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which travels through lakes and mountains with many tunnels and switchbacks, is to be stopped after 128 years in operation…
Local trains will now operate between the Croatian towns of Ploče and Metković, which are located in the southern Dalmatian Dubrovnik-Neretva County, ending a long-standing connection between the county and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Metković station will lose its status as a border crossing, and for the first time in 128 years will not travel towards Mostar and Sarajevo. From now the train to Mostar and Sarajevo will leave from the Croatian capital Zagreb, stopping only in the Bosnian and Herzegovinian town of Čapljina.
