Getting There (car, train, coach, boat)

Belgrade is at a crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe, which lead via the Morava-Vardar and Nišava-Marica valleys to the Aegean coast, to Asia Minor and the Middle East.

Belgrade lies on the Danube, a waterway connecting Western and Central European countries to the Southeastern and Eastern Europe. With the construction of the Đerdap artificial lake and hydroelectric power plant, Belgrade became a port for river and ocean-going vessels. Its harbour is visited by ships from the Black Sea, and with the opening of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal, it became a central point of the most important waterway in Europe, connecting the North Sea, the Atlantic and the Black Sea.

By Car

Belgrade is situated at the crossroads of European highways E-70 and E-75. Foreign drivers in Serbia need to carry a national driving licence, registration document and insurance policy. Motor vehicles with foreign number plates are subject to road tolls.
