Travel and accommodation information

Flight Information and arrival to Novi Sad:

The closest airport to Novi Sad is Belgrade airport „Nikola Tesla“ (BEG), which is well connected with many EU destinations. We expect that most of you will arrive on Sunday (31.05) and leave on Wednesday (03.06). The airport is approx 50-60 mins drive from Novi Sad. When you have your flights booked, please kindly let us know your arrival and departure flights to/from Belgrade airport by sending email with this information to Dejan. Once we have arrival/departure data for all the participants, we will make groups with similar arrival times and organize cars/mini-vans transfer between the airport and hotels in Novi Sad. Therefore, at the arrival terminal, there will be a driver with a board and your names on. The cost of this transfer (details to be confirmed) is approximately 40 EUR per car – you will be provided a receipt.

Hotel information:

Note that the COST flat rate reimbursement for this event will be 60 EUR/night!

We booked 15 rooms in Hotel Centar which is conveniently located in the city centre and approx 15 mins walking distance from University Campus where the venue is. Price per night (including breakfast) for a single room is 5940 RSD (~ 50 EUR) and 7200 RSD (~ 60 EUR) for two persons sharing the room.

We also booked 15 rooms in Voyager Apartments conveniently located just accross the street from the University Campus and the venue. Voyager provides nice serviced flats (30-40m2) that include breakfast and the price per night is 4900 RSD (~ 40 EUR) for single-occupancy and 5900 RSD (~ 50 EUR) for two persons sharing the flat.

For both options, please send email to Dejan with your preference and dates of arrival/departure and we will add you (on a first-come-first served basis) to the reservation list that will be forwarded to hotels. If you would prefer other options apart from these two hotels, please check usual booking webpages and let us know if you need any help or advice.
