River TransportDanube
588 km of the International River Danube, the category awarded as per Danube Commission rules, represents the most secure and safest navigable route throughout the year.

164 km of inter-state navigable passage on the river Tisa, with the network of the domestic channel Danube – Tisa – Danube totaling 600 km, with the potential to become an International Navigable route of satisfactory level for use by all Danube basin countries

207 km of the river Sava with a good potential to gain the status of International Navigable route, and of sufficient level category to develop mutual interests of the countries through which the river transits (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina (The Republic of Srpska) and Serbia)

Velika Morava
River Morava of significant length with long term planning underway to link the Danube to the Aegean Sea at Thessalonica.

Significant advantages and a relatively well developed network of internal navigable routes as well as pier and port capacities and facilities in the Republic of Serbia constitute a good infrastructure base for further development. These plans are compatible with the defined policies of the EU concerning the transfer of part of transport.

Air TransportThere are two airports in Serbia; Belgrade & Nis

  1. Airport in Nis is destroyed – Project of reconstruction has been prepared
  2. Belgrade Airport – Favourable location
  3. Modernization plan has been prepared.
