As in all big cities, finding a parking space in the central streets of Belgrade during working hours is very tricky and we recommend vehicles be parked in a public car park. Parking areas on the streets in the center of Belgrade are divided into three parking zones where parking time is limited and payment is made for each full or incomplete hour:
– Red zone – maximum 1 hour
– Yellow zone – maximum 2 hours
– Green zone – maximum 3 hours
Parking areas within these three parking zones are indicated by special traffic signs bearing the colour of the zone as well as by road markings. Parking is payable in all three zones on week days from 07.00-21.00 and Saturdays from 07.00 and 14.00. Once the allowed time has expired, the driver must move his or her vehicle. A parking warden will leave a fine payment order under the windscreen wipers if he should fail to do so.
Payment methods for parking in the three zones are:
– Parking tickets – these are purchased at kiosks and other points of sale. The time of arrival should be written on the ticket and it should be displayed on the inside of the windscreen.
– Parking ticket machines (only in the red zone) – machines selling parking tickets take coins and electronic parking cards.
– Mobile phone – by sending an SMS containing the registration number of the vehicle (for example BG123456, without spaces) to 9111, 9112 or 9113 (depending on the zone), from any mobile network.
Confirmation that payment has been made by SMS will arrive in the form of a return SMS to the users mobile, detailing the parking service they have paid for. The user must keep the return SMS as proof that they have paid to park in the event that they are erroneously issued a fine. Should the user not receive a return message confirming payment for parking within two minutes, SMS payment for parking has failed and they will not be charged for the service. The user may obtain information about the status of currently paid parking in a zone by sending an SMS with a “?” in the text to the number for that zone. A reminder of the expiry of the parking period will arrive five to 10 minutes before expiry in the form of an SMS message sent to the user’s mobile phone. The user may extend the parking period for an additional hour by sending an SMS message containing the same registration number or just a “*” to the same parking zone number. Once the maximum parking time allowed has expired, the user may not pay to park by SMS for the next 15 minutes.
Parking areas outside the three central zones, which are marked by the usual traffic signs, can be used for an unlimited time period and are paid for on an hourly or daily basis between 7.00 and 21.00 on work days and on Saturdays from 7.00 to 14.00.
Parking in public garages is payable per full or incomplete hour:
