Kragujevac Transportation

  • To/From Kragujevac, by Car and by Bus...

    The only two common ways to travel to Kragujevac and from it are by car and by bus. Kragujevac has no airport, private helicopter is not what we consider to be the common way, and a train should be excluded. If one travel by car from Belgrade, there are two ways – picturesque stari put (old road), and autoput (the highway), which, although a bit...

  • Largest Shopping Center in Kragujevac

    If you need to buy clothes, accessories for your home, jewellery, perfumes, shoes or develop photos this is the place you want to visit. A photo place on the first floor of the shopping centre develops excellent pictures in no time. I have found that developing pictures there is significantly cheaper than doing so at home.

    When you are looking for a supermarket in Serbia you'll have a hard time find a really big store. Maxi is as big as it gets in Kragujevac. Here you'll be able to find pretty much anything that western type supermarkets carry.
