I did not find any suitable train of bus connection from either Zagreb nor
Novska to Banja Luka.
In Romania prices to rent a bus are amazingly cheap so I'd very much prefer to
kindly ask our hosts to arrange this for us.
If I'd end up being the only one coming from Zürich, I could also switch to
take the other train from Munich with you.
