Two questions about Belgrade, Serbia

Jump to last reply

Two questions about Belgrade, Serbia

1) Do they exchange Norwegian, or Swedish kroner at the currency shops in central Belgrade, or is just euros, and dollars they're after?

2) What's a good "SIM card pack" to purchase for calling local mobiles in Serbia, Montenegro, and Croatia. It would be nice to keep the same number as I travel throughout the Balkans this summer. In Norway, I found Chess startpacke which was great because it cost only 100kroner, and included the same amount of airtime credit. I use it sporadically, and 3 months later (in Sweden, and Denmark) I still haven't needed to top up. I guess what I'm asking for is a similar setup for the Balkans.

Thanks.

    Sandy456 - The official Serbian currency is the Dinar, not the Euro. There is a currency exchange booth at the airport (ATM machines are everywhere as well) and converted US$ to Dinars without a problem. We also had Euro, but always paid in Dinars when we purchased something - didn't find anyone in Belgrade 'after' any other currency other than their own. It will be extremely difficult to exchange Dinars to another currency once outside Serbia. We had some currency we were hoping to exchange before we flew to Prague when leaving Belgrade, however, the exchange booth at the airport was closed due to the early hour. We tried to exchange our extra Dinars at 3 different locations in Prague but were unsuccessful in doing so.

    Belgrade is an amazing city - and definitely not touristed by Westerners or Europeans for that matter. It's a big city, however, taxi's are inexpensive so it's easy to get around. Food was excellent and inexpensive-definitely not the place to be if you are a vegetarian!!

    Can't answer your 2nd question as we have a MOBAL cell phone that's good all over Europe so we don't need to purchase SIM cards along the way.

    Have a great trip!
