Transport and accommodation

Serbia’s main international airport is Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, located around 12 miles from the city centre. Belgrade is served by most major airports, with a flight time of just two or three hours from mainland Europe and around nine hours from New York. Belgrade is served by a number of budget airlines, with flights from the UK from as little as £40 one way, and flights from Paris starting as low as €20 if you can be flexible on times and dates. Flights from New York start at around $700 return.

To reach the city from the airport, you can take an express minibus at around €2.50. Taxis from the airport operate a fixed fee system, currently set at €15, with a journey time of around half an hour.

Travelers from Europe may opt to take the train into Serbia rather than fly, with a good network of connections across the Baltic States and beyond. Trains in the region are not known for their punctuality, or for their comfort, with much of the rolling stock somewhat outdated. The same is true for trains within Serbia itself, with most passengers preferring to take long distance buses to get around the country.

Within Belgrade there are numerous transport options, including trams, trolleybuses and taxis, although the city is compact enough to walk around, and you will be rewarded with some spectacular sights.

Accommodation in Serbia is not quite up to the standard that many Europeans have come to expect, although it is improving to meet demand as tourists come back to the country. Prices in Belgrade tend to be more expensive than elsewhere, as rooms are more in demand, so if you can find your treatment in one of the other Serbian cities, you will save even more on your trip. Even so, you can still find a top rated hotel in Belgrade for under £100 / €120 / $160 per night, with lots of cheaper options also available.
