Belgrade train station
In no other means of transportation will you find such a big difference between how it should be and how it actually is. Cheap, dirty, small, often crowded, slow, and unreliable, freezing cold in winter and sweaty in summer – still, by train is how a great number of people (mostly young) decide to get to Belgrade. However, the choice is yours, so lets see what can you expect once you hit the train station in Belgrade. You will find the exit easily, even though its marked poorly.
It is possible to leave your luggage at the station for a fee of about 2 EUR/day. Just look for a “Prtljag/Leave luggage” sign.
The station itself has a lot in common with trains, being small, dirty, smelly, and often crowded. Plus, because of the unreliability of the train arrivals and sometimes departures, its recommended to double-check the info you have on one of the information- or ticket sale stands.
But, lets say that, on the bright side, if there is one, Belgrade train station is located in the very center of the city and all you need to do to get to the very city center is to manage a steep climb of some 300 meters. Find Balkanska street on the map, follow it and you cant miss. Sometimes its difficult to manage this uphill street even without that 30 kilo luggage you’ll probably be carrying, so try catching a cab. Try not to look to desperate and avoid the taxis lurking around the Belgrade train station, as well as the annoying drivers trying to convince you that theirs cab is the one you’re looking for. Try to catch one passing by on the street. Check the cab section for more details.
