The conference will be held at the Kolarac People’s University Building, also known as Ilija M. Kolarac Endowment. The venue is located in the city centre, where many of Belgrade’s cultural and historical sights are to be found.


In order to get RSD (Serbian currency) feel free to use cash machines at the airport. There are several options available for getting from the Nikola Tesla Airport to Belgrade city centre.

  • Taxi: A counter for issuing fixed price certificates (vouchers) for taxi transport is located in the international arrivals area. Please make sure to obtain a voucher before booking a vehicle. Make sure to only enter in a vehicle that accepts vouchers. The price of a taxi ride from the airport to Belgrade city center is 3.000 RSD (approx. 25 EUR). We recommend using the taxi service as the quickest and easiest way to reach your accommodation.
  • Bus: The public transport line 72 from the airport to the Zeleni venac stop in the city centre. Ticket prices for one ride are 89 RSD / 0.75 EUR if purchased at a kiosk, or 150 RSD / 1.30 EUR if purchased on board the bus.
  • Minibus: The line A1 from the airport to Slavija Square. The ticket price is 400 RSD / 3.40 EUR and is purchased from the driver. From this square, you can take either line E9 or line 29 to get to the central Republic Square and your accommodation (price is either 89 or 150 RSD).

About Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital city of the Republic of Serbia. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers and the borderline of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkan Peninsula. The population of Belgrade numbers around 1.7 million inhabitants. Belgrade has a rich and long history, diverse cultural heritage and a dynamic and urban everyday life.

The conference venue, the Kolarac Endowment building, is conveniently located in the vicinity of some of Belgrade’s most important landmarks. It is just around the corner from the main city promenade, Knez Mihailova Street; it is one block away from the historical city fortress, Kalemegdan, which wraps around a large park while overlooking the confluence of Belgrade’s two rivers. The Republic Square and the National Museum of Serbia are also just down the street from this year’s EPSA venue.
