    Just few tips here... Serbian currency is called dinar. You will be expected to pay with dinars, no foreign currencies are allowed.

Novi Sad Tourist Traps

  • TAXI

    Like almost everywhere there are people who want to take ilegal profit from tourists. Is difficult to say a thing when it happens, but sometimes taxi drivers make routes more much long, and make you pay also more. If you can take a taxi with a serbian, problem solved. If not pay attention to the route and the accountant.
