Belgrade by tram – and it is a free tour

If it happens that you are in Belgrade during the weekend, do not miss the chance to take the complimentary tour that the city’s tourist board offers to visitors.

There are separate tours in Serbian language, on Fridays at 7pm and English at 8pm, and on Saturdays at 3pm and 4pm, respectively.

The tram tour lasts one hour, and it takes you to different landmarks of Belgrade.

You should register for the tram tour at the Tourist Information Centre on Knez Mihailova 6 (Open: 9am to 9pm, and on Sundays 10am-3pm).

They say that you need to present your passport or ID card, but in my case, I asked the hotel’s concierge to call them. They just needed my full name, and no passport, and I was good to go.

The journey starts at the turn at the city’s Zoo, on Tadeuša Košćuška Street, where tram number 5 and 10 also depart.

You have to look for a blue and white tram.

Be there at least ten minutes before departure, just in case.

The tram passes by Kalemegdan, the pier, Karađorđeva Street at the old and defunct railway Station, Nemanjina, Resavska, Kralja Aleksandra Boulevard to the Monument to Vuk, Kraljice Marije, Džordža Vašingtona (George Washington), Cara Dušana to Beko.

Basically, the tram tour stops at the same location where it started, on the other side of the road.

Bear in mind that a limited number of spots (30 people) are available for each tour.
