Useful Information for Belgrade (Print me!!!)

Belgrade lies in the central European time zone CET (GMT + 1 hour).

This summer is VERY HOT, and we assume that temperatures will raise up to 40 degrees.
Therefore make sure ,that with usual camping equipment, you also bring hats, summer clothes,
sun creams, mosquito spray..whatever you need for surviving the extreme summer!

Electric Current / Water

  • Voltage 220 V ~Frequency 50Hz
  • Water from taps is drinkable, but it has a horrible taste;).

Cyrilic Alphabet

In Serbia all streetnames are in Cyrilic letters, while on the maps you can buy at nearly every kiosk, they use latin. It is handy to learn the most of the symbols.

You should keep in mind a lot of people in Serbia don't speak English, so you better have this Alphabet printed with you.
