ACCOMMODATION

Student Dormitory Petar Drapšin

During recent festivals, participants were accommodated in a student dormitory ’Petar Drapšin’ which is located in street Kralja Petra No. 83 in Belgrade. Because of its beauty the dormitory was proclaimed a national cultural monument. It was renewed in 2009 and therefore is modernly equipped. Rooms are with 4 or 6 beds, with separate bathrooms. There is also a kitchen with the dining room where participants are served 3 meals per day.

City centre (Knez Mihailova street, the main promenade in Belgrade) is just a 10-minute walk away (around 300 m). The nearest shop and bakery are in front of the dorm, and the nearest pharmacy is next to the dorm. The nearest bus and tram stop is in the street Cara Dušana (buses 24, 26 and 79, trams 2, 5 and 10).

Dormitory has no free park space.

Here at ISWiB our goal is to give you a chance to experience the multiculturalism in the best possible manner, while located at the heart of Serbian capital!

Warning! You cannot be accommodated before July 16th and after July 24th.

ABOUT BELGRADE

Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. Its name translates to "White city".
Throughout the history Belgrade is referred to with various names in different languages: Alba Graeca, Alba Bulgarica, Bello grado, Nandor Alba, Griechisch Weissenburg, Castelbianco... However, all these names are translations of the Slavic word Beograd.
Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education, science and economy. As a result of its tumultuous history, Belgrade has for centuries been home to many nationalities, with Serbs of the Orthodox Christian religion making up the majority of the population (90%). The official language is Serbian, while visitors from abroad can use English to communicate.
