Trip to Serbia
A trip to Serbia will certainly be remembered for a very long time. But to make it all go «with a bang», you need to know how it is most convenient to move around the country.
Urban public transport
You can travel around Belgrade by buses, trolleybuses, taxis and trams. The capital also has a network of suburban routes. It includes 6 lines connecting the center with the suburbs. In order not to overload the city center, the railway lines run underground here. There are even two underground stations. The difference between suburban trains and subway lines is the carriages (ordinary ones are used here) and strict adherence to the schedule.
In provincial cities, buses are the main mode of transportation. But you need to be prepared for the fact that most of them are pretty shabby. The ticket can be bought at the newsstand. The coupons are simply composted at the entrance. You can also pay for the fare to the driver, but be prepared to overpay almost twice.
Another option for convenient and inexpensive movement around the city. But you need to be careful, because taxi drivers, taking advantage of their ignorance of the area, deceive tourists. That is why be sure to purchase a city map in order to at least roughly know the route of movement.
By the way, ordering a taxi will cost a little less, about 20%, than if you catch a car on the street..
As such, there is no domestic flight in Serbia. After Montenegro gained independence, flights Belgrade - Podgorica and Belgrade - Tivat began to be considered international. The main airport complex of the country Nikola Tesla is located 18 km from the center of the capital.
It is the railway that is the main mode of transport if you need to move from one city to another. Railway tracks connect all major cities of Serbia.
In addition, you can get from the country by trains to Croatia, Montenegro, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania, Russia and some other countries..
Renting a car is easy. The main thing is to have an international driver's license with you. You must also be over 21 years old. Additionally, you will need to leave a deposit.
Useful little things
If you decide to come to Serbia in your car, then you should have «green map». This is the name of the international driver's liability insurance policy. You can also issue it directly at the border when entering the country..
When visiting Kosovo at the border, you will need to draw up a document that resembles our OSAGO. It works for two weeks. The cost is 50 euros. If you are not ready to pay for another insurance, then entry will be denied.
