Belgrade, The White City, is the capital of the Republic of Serbia. It is a must see destination, particularly in how the multiple diverse reigns of the region have impacted its architecture and cultural practices. The city of Belgrade lies on the confluence of the rivers Danube and Sava, and it also has the biggest Eastern Orthodox Church in the world.
Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is located 18km from the centre of the city, and is the headquarters of the national airline, AirSerbia, welcoming passengers from 40 different cities across Europe and the Middle East. There are two bus routes departing from the airport to the city: the MiniBus A1 stopping at the main train station, and the number 72 stopping at Zelenic Venac.
Serbian Railways operate from Belgrade-Galva Train Station to 22 international destinations. Belgrade Train Station, located near to the Sala river, forms part of the Vienna - Istanbul railway line. There are daily trains to Sofia, Budapest, Ljubljana, Vienna, Zagreb, Skopje, Timisoara and Montenegro.
Belgrade Central Bus Station is right next to the Railway Station on Karađorđeva street, receiving both national and international coaches. Coaches within Serbia or Montenegro are not very modern or clean in comparison to coaches in Croatia or Western Europe, but are efficient nonetheless. The main international bus company operating in Belgrade is Lasta, which operates to many European destinations.
There is an extensive public transport network of buses and trams within Belgrade. There are 12 tram lines, hundreds of bus lines, 8 trolleybus lines, and 9 public minibus lines. Passengers should be aware that they can't purchase a single ticket, but rather a ticket that lasts for 90 minutes, or 1-day, 3-day or 5-day tickets. Taxis are also very cheap and can be ordered over the phone.
