The official currency is Serbian Dinar (RSD) (1 euro is around 118 dinars). The official language is Serbian, which is a South Slavic language.

About Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital and the largest city of Serbia. The city lies at the confluence of Sava and Danube rivers. With a population of almost two million, Belgrade is the third largest city in Southeastern Europe. The architecture of Belgrade is a mirror of different cultural and historical periods, influences and styles: from old Oriental influences, across baroque architecture, secession, academism and neoclassicism, socialist and industrial features from post WW2 period, to modern architecture and layout of New Belgrade with wide boulevards. Knez Mihajlova Street is the main walking street in Belgrade. It is a pedestrian zone, protected by law as one of the most valuable monumental complexes of the city. Belgrade has many beautiful parks and the biggest one is Kalemegdan, with an old fortress, comprising remains from Ancient and Byzantine times to Turkish and Austro–Ugrian periods. Belgrade has more than 20 theatres and two opera houses and it is home to a number of film, theater, and music festivals. There are many excellent restaurants, cafés and pubs, and British Times proclaimed Belgrade as Europe’s best nightlife city.


There are many nice hotels near the conference venue, and the participants are free to choose the one that fits them best. However, we managed to arrange some special offers for ADG participants, and we list them in the following text as our recommendations.

Belgrade Inn Hotel

Conference Venue

The conference is organized by the Faculty of Mathematics, a member of the University of Belgrade, which is the oldest and the most significant university in Serbia. The roots of the University of Belgrade can be found in the College founded by Dositej Obradović in 1808, during the First Serbian uprising against the Ottoman Empire. The College ceased to exist after the uprising collapsed, and it was re-founded thirty years later, in the liberated Serbia, under the name of Lyceum. It received the status of university in 1905, in then Kingdom of Serbia. Since then, it is the most prominent educational and scientific institution in the country, now consisting of 31 faculties and 11 scientific institutes.

Although the Faculty of Mathematics formally exists as a separate member of the University of Belgrade only since 1995, the history of mathematical education at the university is much longer, and it dates back to the Lyceum period, in the middle of 19th century. The first department of mathematics was founded in 1873. During the first half of the 20th century, the department was a part of the Faculty of Philosophy, until it became a part of the new-founded Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics in 1947. Finally, in 1995, the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics was reorganized into several distinct faculties, one of which is the Faculty of Mathematics.

Today, the Faculty of Mathematics is a modern educational institution, organizing undergraduate, master and doctoral programs in several different areas of mathematics, astronomy and computer science. The faculty is also involved in the scientific research in many fields, such as mathematical analysis, algebra, geometry, statistics, optimization, machine learning, bioinformatics, automated reasoning, etc.

The Faculty of Mathematics is located in the very center of Belgrade, close to Kalemegdan fortress, and to the confluence of the rivers Danube and Sava. The main pedestrian street, Knez Mihajlova, is just about 250m from the faculty building.

NOTE: The conference will be held at the nearby hotel Palace (only about 600m from the faculty building).

Travel Information

Visa information

Before you travel to Serbia, you should check for visa and other requirements for entering the country. The detailed information can be found at the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia.

Travel by plane

Belgrade Airport is located about 18km west of the city center. At the arrivals hall there are car rentals, a 24-hour exchange office and several ATMs.

In order to reach the city center, the simplest way is to get a taxi ride directly to the hotel or hostel where you will be staying. There is a Taxi information stand at the international arrivals hall of the Belgrade airport. If you wish to take a taxi to your destination, go to this stand and state your destination. You will be given a voucher with the price you will have to pay the taxi driver once you get to your destination. There are 6 zones with prices ranging from RSD 2.300 to 9.900 (around €20-85). The Faculty of Mathematics and its surroundings (likely including your accommodation place) is located in the Zone 2, so the expected taxi price should be RSD 3,000 (around €25). Once you obtain the voucher, exit the building and get the taxi. When you get to your destination, pay the taxi driver the fee stated in the voucher.

Another way of reaching the city center (assuming you are not renting a car) is by using the public transportation:

  • Bus line 72: you can use it to reach the stop Zeleni Venac (the final stop), which is about 200m from the city center. The price is RSD 150 (around €1,30, tickets can be purchased on the bus).
  • Shuttle bus A1 (mini bus): you can use it to reach the stop Savski Trg, which is about 1km from the city center. The price is RSD 300 (around €2,60, tickets can be purchased on the bus).

Travel by car

Belgrade lies at the intersection of E-70 and E-75 motorways. Foreign drivers in Serbia need an international driving license, vehicle registration certificate and insurance policy. The valid insurance policies are issued by the signatory countries of the Vehicle Insurance Convention and citizens of other countries are required to buy an insurance policy on entering Serbia. You cannot miss Belgrade, because the motorway runs through the city. The speed limit in the city is set at 50 km/h unless otherwise indicated by speed signs. Alcohol consumption is not allowed when driving.
