Getting Around Belgrade
Having a car in busy Belgrade is often more of a liability than
an asset, the traffic being hectic and parking in the city limited.
The best way to get around the city is on public transport, which
consists of hundreds of buses, trams and trolley buses. It is wise
to avoid rush hour. Tickets for all types of transportation can be
bought from kiosks in the streets, each journey costing 27 dinars.
Tickets can be bought from the drivers, but these are more
expensive. If you need to ask directions be aware it is best to
approach a younger person, as most elderly Belgrade residents will
not understand English. Taxis are cheap and safe, and can be hailed
in the street. Ensure that you pick a licensed taxi: these are
indicated with a small blue sign featuring the city''s coat of arms
and a number. Privately owned taxis, sporting a white marker on the
roof, are likely to be extremely expensive.
