---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to Serbia!
 
Serbia is a safe country, Belgrade is a safe city. The Serbs love Jews, and there is no anti-Semitism. You can walk around the street with a kippa without fear. As in all cities, just beware of pickpockets who can try to take money without you noticing.

Transportation to the city
Private driver:
Reliable English-speaking driver: Mr. Aleks.
Phone number / Whatsapp: + 381-693571234

You have to coordinate with him in advance.

Prices For each direction:
4- car seat: $ 25
7- car seat: $ 40
You can pay him in US dollars.

Taxi:
It is recommended to take a taxi from the airport. the estimated cost for each direction is $18 but you can only pay in local currency – Serbian Dinar. You can convert dollars to local currency at the airport. The conversion rate at the airport is high so it is advisable to convert only the necessary amount for a taxi and to convert the rest in the city. There is a money change location in every corner of the city.

Pay attention! You should only take a taxi from the official station where there is a large taxi sign at the airport. local drivers will offer you a taxi please don’t go with them as they will charge you an excessive price. Again, just go to the official station!

Accommodation
You can feel secure with any hotel on Booking.com or Airbnb.

Chabad apartment:
You can rent our beautiful newly renovated apartment in Chabad House. There are only 2 rooms and each room has 2 beds. Its suitable for a maximum of 4 people. Price for one room: 40 Euro. Price for 2 rooms 80 Euro. For more information and reservations click on this link.

For recommended hotels in the city center close to the Chabad House please click here.

Kosher food:
Please note! Belgrade has no kosher restaurant or shop. even if Google redirects you to “kosher restaurants”, they are not kosher at all!!!
Chabad provides kosher dinners at 7:30pm by reservations only. Please send requests within 2 weeks of your visit. For information and pre-order click here.
Breakfast and lunch can be ordered for groups of 10 or more by sending a request within 2 weeks of your visit.

Minyanim:
Usually there is no Minyan on weekdays, but sometimes when there is a group of guests we make a minyan at the Chabad House for Mincha and Arvit.

We recommend that you send us a message two days in advance to see if there is a chance for a Minyan. Also, if you see a lot of Jews on your flight, you can arrange with them and schedule a prayer time at the Chabad House.

Tour guides:
Belgrade is a beautiful and interesting city with a fascinating Jewish history. there are many Jewish tour guides in Belgrade who will be happy to take you on a tour.

Here is a list of recommended Jewish tour guides.
Mr. Yoel Simhony – Phone Number +381-60-550-7150. E-mail: office@noatours-serbia.com

Chabad Serbia told me:

1) Tel Aviv Hummus House is not kosher at all.
2) Usually they are closed on Sunday, but if many people request dinner from them, then they will serve dinner.  They said to follow up about a week in advance.

Just booked 6/22-7/8 for my family of 8 for a bar mitzvah. Booked in 2 reservations through Chase (SR) portal for a total 194,917 UR. Amazing deal. Dan is the man.
Only downside is the 21 hr layover on the return flight but a good night's sleep in a nearby hotel could end up being a plus. Looking at the Holiday Inn Express for 10,000 pts (I have to many. Have to start using them up!) since I know the brand and there is an airport shuttle.

I just booked my son's trip to Yeshiva (One-way) for $235 (~19K UR points). I wanted to point out that not only do the deals apply to one-way flights, but those flights from JFK-TLV don't require an overnight in Belgrade.

Does anyone have any experience with renting a car?

Is there anything we should be aware of before renting a car?

We need 8/3-8/31. We got one flight booked, but now need to get for me and 3 kids. We can't find the flights anymore. Is it really full?

To complicate things, we want our son to fly 1 way with us there on 8/3, and also have 2 kids who need to go earlier and fly back with us on 8/31.

Thanks.

The current issue is that Chase won't let us book our two 15 year olds traveling together even though Air Serbia would, and we can't find anywhere to get this price. The other two websites didn't help. Any thoughts?
