This mini guide will help you get around Belgrade the way that suits you best.
The public transportation system in Belgrade includes several tram, trolley and bus lines, as well as a city railway line from the Pančevo Bridge to Zemun. There are four types of tickets: monthly (for residents), credit (refilled on most larger kiosks), and one trip (bought at kiosks or at the vehicle driver’s).
There are several taxi companies and associations in Belgrade. Avoid the ones stationed at the airport, since they tend to charge the double. A regular fair from the airport to the city should be around 10 to 15 €. The best would be to call one of the top carriers, and they send a vehicle in less than five minutes.
With your own vehicle
When coming to Belgrade with your own vehicle, make sure that your accommodation place has it’s own parking, since parking is one of the most annoying issues in Belgrade. If you’ve never driven through a chaotic metropolitan traffic, it might be smarter to avoid trying it in Belgrade.
Several local and international agencies offer rent-a-car services with standard cars, vans and even mini-buses. Check out the list for more details.
Parking can be a real nightmare, especially in the downtown area. We’d like to share some tips and info about parking, a map of the parking zones and a map of downtown garages.
There are gas stations almost everywhere in the city and around it. Most of them offer Gasoline, Diesel, Eurodiesel, Biodiesel and Unleaded gasoline.
There are about 65 kilometers of cycling paths in the city, mostly on the river shores, the Sava lake, and in New Belgrade. Belgrade is located on the European Eurovelo 6 and 11 cycling routes. However the old town is not very bicycle friendly, due to chaotic traffic on the streets and narrow sidewalks.
