- Language- Just like the other former Yugoslavian provinces, Serbia’s formal language is Serbo-Croatian, they are the only European language that combine the use of both Latin and Cyrillic alphabets. Though Cyrillic has been Serbia’s only approved script since 2006, the Latin alphabet is still frequently seen and used.
Currency- Serbia's approved currency is the Serbian dinar (RSD). The Serbian dinar can be changed in most of the banks all over Europe. You can change it into RSD at the airport, nearly all banks, or in the many and visibly marked approved exchange offices (Menjačnica/Мењачница). Certified exchange offices show the authorization of the National Bank of Serbia but have unacceptable rates than the various smaller unauthorized exchange offices.
The Euro is seldom accepted, but rates are often overestimated when directly related to the Dinar. Belgrade is usually on par with many European cities rates; though, outside the capital, costs of almost any item are a lot inexpensive than in the capital. Ordinarily, 155 dinars for a bear in a Belgrade restaurant, and 230 dinars for three cokes in a bar outside the center. Store prices stay consistent, everywhere in Belgrade with Coke at approximately. 123 dinars for 3 liters and a loaf of white bread at 45-60 dinars at Feb 2014 and in February 2016, the dinar percentage rate stood at 114 Serbian Dinars for 1 US Dollar, 124 Serbian Dinars for €1 and 158 Serbian Dinars to 1 GBP.
Money changers may reject worn-out or damaged foreign banknotes, particularly United States dollars. Hence it is suggested to bring notes only in a safe condition. Banks usually accept somewhat broken notes, sometimes with interest. Tourists’ checks have become extreme to change, so guests should also come along with debit or credit cards along with lots of hard currency to be on the rival side. Some, though not all, Serbian banks do open on Sundays.
- Communications- Serbia’s calling code is +381. Telenor Serbia, VIP Mobile, and cell Telephony of Serbia are the major cell phone providers, but coverage is far more uncommon in the south than in Belgrade and northern Serbia. All Serbian municipalities contain Internet cafés.
- Duty- Free-Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport includes one of Serbia’s largest duty-free stores. Visitors can convey up to a liter each of wine and spirits, a fair amount of perfume, and extensive clothing and jewelry without incurring customs duty. The same is true for up to 250g of tobacco, 56 cigars, or 210 cigarettes. Weapons and resources meant for Hunters Association of Serbia games are the only weapons that can be brought into Serbia.
