The capital city of Serbia is perfect for culture vultures, you won’t know which museum to visit first. Alternatively you can catch the ballet at the National Theatre, prepare to be amazed by the talent on offer. Republic Square is the perfect place to have a coffee and spend the day people watching – you’ll find some right characters in amongst the crowds! Finally the stunning architecture of Belgrade Cathedral is not to be missed while Serbia’s largest Orthodox temple, The Temple of Saint Sava, is beautiful.
You’ll have no problem purchasing direct flights to Belgrade with Jet Airways, Wizz Air and Wizz Air Ukraine all offering flights. You be able to fly out from London Gatwick, London Luton or London Heathrow. If you wish to fly out from other UK airports, you’ll have to buy indirect flights – just be prepared to stopover for a few hours. However, you’ll have to pay considerably more for this privilege. If you decide to take a holiday to Belgrade, you’ll fly into Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport which is located around 12 kilometres from the city centre.
Once you arrive at the airport you’ll have the option of catching a bus or taking a taxi to help escort you to your final destination. You can purchase bus tickets from the driver and the journey to the city will take around 30 minutes to travel into the city centre. Alternatively you can pick up a taxi from outside the terminal and they charge by the kilometre.
The city is home to a good public transport network so exploring during your holiday in Belgrade couldn’t be easier. Buses do run throughout the night but keep in mind that they’ll not be that frequent – always check the timetable before you head out. All tickets brought must be validated on machines inside the vehicles.
There’s plenty of cheap hotels in Serbia and luckily Belgrade is no different. You’ll have an abundance of cheap hotels in Belgrade to choose from as long as you book well in advance - always shop around too and don’t book the first one you come across. Try keeping an eye out for B&Bs if you’re on a budget as they can sometimes work out less expensive than hotels.
One of the highlights during your holiday in Belgrade will be sampling the delicious cuisine. You’ll have no problem finding a restaurant that caters to your needs. Unfortunately eating out can sometimes be expensive but don’t worry, it’s still possible to do if you’re on a budget. Simply try to stay away from tourist-trap restaurants and instead venture down the side streets to find some hidden eateries. You’ll find you’ll get much more value for money. One dish that must be tried during your visit is roštilj - it consists of a plate filled with various grilled meats.
