Money

The Serbian currency is the dinar (RSD). You can change money in a bank or any of the exchange offices dotting the city (they are marked with the logo of the National Bank of Serbia). Most banks in Belgrade will change travellers cheques, American Express, Thomas Cook, VISA and Eurocheques. Western Union money transfers from abroad can be collected from the post office and most banks. You can buy almost all goods and services with bank cards, and you need cash only for green markets, kiosks, and parking fees. Throughout the city, there is a large number of ATMs where you can collect money 24h. Cards widely acceptable in Belgrade are VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard, Eurocard, Maestro, Diners Club and local DinaCard. American Express has recently been introduced to Belgrade market, and a rather limited number of shops and ATMs will accept it. Euro is definitely the best currency to take to Serbia. While US Dollar, Canadian Dolar and British Pound will be accepted, the commission fee is far greater than the one for Euro. Please don’t forget to exchange money at the airport if you do not hold any dinars. Please check the official exchange rate of the National Bank of Serbia at the link below. http://www.nbs.rs/internet/english/index.html

Getting Around

Public Transportation

Belgrade does not have an underground railway system, but still its public transport network cover almost all areas. City transport comprises buses, trams and trolleybuses.

    There are several types of tickets (image given below):
  • ticket bought from the driver, at cost of 150 RSD (1,30 EUR)
  • prepaid paper ticket that is bought at kiosks; it costs 40 RSD (0,4 EUR) and is empty when bought, so you have to put some money on it
  • tourist paper ticket is bought at kiosks too; it costs 250 RSD (2,20 EUR) for one day, 700 RSD (6 EUR) for three and 1000 RSD for five days (8,50 EUR)
  • prepaid plastic ticket that looks like a credit card; it costs 250 RSD (2,10 EUR) and is also empty when bought; can be recharged to any amount

All tickets (except those bought from the driver) must be validated on machines inside the vehicle (image to the right). Every time you validate your ticket, the amount of 89 RSD (0,75 EUR) will be subtracted from the total amount on your. Public transport runs from 04:00 to 00:00. During night time, buses run at half-hour intervals. Night buses depart from special stops at the Republic Square towards other parts of the city. The night fare is 150 RSD (1,30 EUR), available on board (you can't use your daily ticket for the night rides, tickets must be bought on board). You are advised to avoid trams

Transport authorities routinely check tickets for validation — especially at peak hours on major lines.

Taxi Transportation

There are numerous taxi terminals throughout the city or you can flag one down on the street. Most hotels are happy to book a taxi for you with a reputable company and advise on the likely cost of the fare; prices are reasonable whenever you travel, but rise a little after midnight and on Sundays. Official taxis have a blue sign on the roof in contrast to privately owned cabs having a white marker on the top. Also, official taxis have their license plates ending with TX (for example: BG-1234-TX).
