    Hello everyone. Has anyone taken the train between these two cities (or from Belgrade to Skopje)?

    Hello alexpo

    I haven’t travelled by train in the former Yugoslavia at all.

    But there’s a good deal of info on the seat61.com website. Towards the end, there’s a reference to the route to which you refer.

    Interestingly I see that President Tito’s special train will be used to operate services out of Belgrade to Montenegro:

    Thanks Alex

    I read the first of your links last night. It really is a fantastic website packed with information. I believe there is also a book as well.

    As for Pristina, it appears this is only possible via Skopje. Perhaps with the news yesterday this will change:

    I also looked for flights between the two cities, but the only options were via Zagreb or Split (or both!).

    It will be a long time before this becomes an easy journey by air. Zagreb – Belgrade direct flights have only recently re-started, and (I understand) fitfully as well.

    Rail travel in former Yugoslavia is better than you might expect, recent experience. (But, I hasten to add, I haven’t done the Belgrade Pristina trip.)
