When deciding your means of transport to Belgrade, the most important factors to consider are the starting location and budget. The city has excellent connections to the rest of Europe, but visiting Belgrade from just about any corner of the world shouldn’t be a problem.

  • planning on flying into serbia?

    Depending on your starting point, getting to the Serbian capital by plane might be the quickest option. 

    Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport, the country’s busiest, is located some 18km west of the city center and is well connected to nearly every European capital. Belgrade also has a direct flight to New York’s JFK airport, seasonal charter flights to Greek islands during the summer, and a number of low cost airlines operating flights to and from Nikola Tesla Airport. The Serbian flag carrier is Air Serbia.

    There are a couple of different ways to get from the airport to the city once you arrive, namely by bus (71 and A1) and taxi.

  • looking for a more budget-friendly way of visiting?

    If you’re planning on coming to Belgrade from a neighboring country or another part of Serbia, it might make sense to take a bus. This is an affordable way of traveling around the Balkans, which might also afford more flexibility during your trip as there are many bus companies.

    Further information about buses to Belgrade you can find on Belgrade bus station website.

    Aside from the well established local bus companies, you can also check out the Flixbus website for even more budget-friendly fares.

  • prefer a more scenic way to travel?

    Trains are a great way to travel as they are fast, cost-effective, and offer amazing views. They are also more comfortable than buses and planes, so if you plan on visiting Belgrade from nearby countries, this is a good option. 

    Serbia has railway connections both within its borders and outside them, the most popular train destination from Belgrade being Budapest. Further information about trains and e-tickets to Belgrade.

  • arranging to arrive in belgrade by car?

    If you prefer driving to Belgrade yourself, the means of traveling which offers the most flexibility, finding your way around should be quite straightforward. Serbia’s longest motorway, E-75 highway, runs from the north of the country near Hungary and shoots down all the way to the southernmost region of Serbia. 

    If you’re planning on traveling with your own vehicle, make sure to have an IDP. For driving on major highways you’ll have to pay a toll, either in dinars, euros or by card. 

    As the major border crossings into Serbia can get quite congested, particularly during holidays and over the summer, it's good to check out alternative routes beforehand. Specifically, if you’re entering Serbia from Hungary, avoid the main Szeged/Horgoš border crossing and try Tompa/Kelebija or Asotthalom/Bački Vinogradi. Likewise, if you’re arriving from Croatia the Tovarnik/Šid crossing is usually faster than Bajakovo/Batrovci. For those driving from Macedonia, the Pelince/Prohor Pčinjski border crossing is likely to get you into Serbia faster than Tabanovce/Preševo.

  • wanna roll into belgrade in style?

    Sailing down the Danube is without a doubt one of the coolest ways to arrive in Belgrade. This is a particularly good option if you want to visit other cities on the mighty Danube, such as Bratislava, Vienna, and Budapest. These kinds of journeys take up to several days, but are well-worth it for the detours and spectacular views.

  • more of a biker yourself?

    You can always make your way to Belgrade by bicycle, depending on your starting destination. There’s also loads of scenic bike routes through Serbia, the most popular cycling paths being along the Danube. Check Eurovelo 6.
