Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Belgrade is a huge city that offers something for every kind of visitor. From the world’s largest Eastern Orthodox church to its resurgence as a leading economic hub in south-Eastern Europe, there’s plenty to attract both leisure and business visitors alike.
Located where the Sava river meets the Danube, this ‘White City’ is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Serbia, with around 1.8 million inhabitants.
It’s also got an extremely long history that dates back to the 4th century BC, and has seen many changes in power from the Celts and Romans, to the Ottomans and Habsburgs.
It’s also seen much turbulence in recent years, particularly during the Yugoslav wars of the late 1990s.
If you’re arriving via Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, you may want to consider jumping all queues for public transport by booking a private airport transfer with us to take you the 18 kilometres from the airport to your accommodation.
We can offer minibus or coach airport shuttle services to and from Belgrade airport or, if you prefer, we can arrange private transfers in one of our luxury limousines.
While the city itself is huge, its centre is relatively self-contained, making it easy to get around on foot.
The area contained within Kalemegdan, Knez Mihajlova Street and Skadarska Street is probably best negotiated on foot, although if you want to explore other areas, you may want to consider taking advantage of one of our Belgrade minibus rentals.
One of the most important places to visit, the Kalemegdan (or Belgrade Fortress) is easily accessible from Knez Mihajova Street, the main pedestrianised street in the city, and contains many tombs and monuments, together with cafes and a funfair.
The scene of 115 battles, it’s been destroyed over 40 times, but still has an imposing presence.
You’ll also want to take some time to visit Republic Square, the main square that’s home to the statue of Mihailo Obrenovic, the National Theatre and the National Museum.
Also in Old Belgrade is the lively cobblestoned Skadarlija Street, which is filled with restaurants and cafes. It’s a great place to listen to live bands late evening, and it retains a lot of the atmosphere of old Belgrade.
To understand more about Belgrade’s turbulent history, a visit to the Museum of Yugoslav History is a must. There are over 200,000 artefacts from photographs to weapons and treasure that tell the tale of this fascinating city. You’ll also find Tito’s gigantic mausoleum in the grounds.
Other places of interest include the Old Royal Palace located on Nikola Pasic Square which has become the modern day Town Hall; The White Palace which is part of the Royal Compound, and The New Palace, which was built between 1911 and 1922 for the King, but which has now become the official seat of the President of the Republic of Serbia. The National Assembly of Serbia is located just across from the Old Royal Palace.
If you love looking at churches and cathedrals, you’ll be in your element in Belgrade. Not only is the Saint Sava Temple the largest Orthodox church in Serbia, but it’s one of the largest in the world, plus the city also has a very impressive cathedral which is dedicated to Saint Archangel Michael.
Located near to the Kalemegdan, it was completed in 1840. Opposite you’ll find the Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the Serbian Patriarchate.
To get a feel of authentic Belgrade, take a trip up to Gardosh on the right side of the river Danube. It’s a myriad of narrow streets filled with houses, historic churches and restaurants. Don’t forget to try one of the floating or ‘splav’ restaurants.
While you can spend your time looking around the compact old centre, if you want to travel further afield it makes sense to entrust your travel to RentABus.com in Belgrade.
We not only have a fleet of modern and comfortable minibuses, coaches and limousines for hire in Belgrade, but we can provide knowledgeable guides for your visit too.
