Hi
I’m trying to get to Serbia (Belgrade) from Athens. I’ll be leaving Athens on August 4th. I’ve looked for trains but I can’t find a connection; not even from Thessaloniki, Greece. Does anyone have any ideas how to get from Greece to Serbia???
Thanks.

There’s really only 1 train a day and it takes over 19 hours with a connection in Thessaloniki (the other options are 25 and 31 hours). Use the German rail site for schedules anywhere in Europe. http://reiseauskunft…
While it’s very user-friendly in English it doesn’t always pick up standard English spelling of the place names. In this case it accepts Athenes and Beograd.

I’d be looking for a flight. I don’t see anything on www.whichbudget.com but Mobissimo.com brings up Alitalia and Olympic Airways and Europebyair.com shows Olympic with direct flights for this route.

oldlady, would it be possible for you to add the German rail site to our links directory? you reference it a lot so it would make sense to put it in there. Smile

Phil,

Oldlady beat me to it. There’s trains to Belgrade from Thessaloníki (not Athens). You’ll have to take the train to Thessaloníki, then transfer to another train for Belgrade.

To go from Athens (southern Greece) to Belgrade (northern Serbia) is quite a long ways, and unless you plan on stopping along the way, you may want to consider flying.
