ACCESSIBILITY

In the city

It is difficult to find information on the accessibility of Belgrade. Most businesses do not disclose accessibility details on their website and accessible tourism information is almost nonexistent.

Belgrade is not wheelchair friendly. Most sidewalks are high and ramps are steep and not easy to find. There are still many public buildings and businesses that are not step-free and which do not offer wheelchair accessible toilets.

The public transport network is also not accessible for wheelchair users. Trolley buses and buses are most often not wheelchair accessible and very few tram lines are ground level.

Belgrade’s city transport company can provide vehicles for transportation for persons with disabilities. This service needs to be pre-booked through the Bitef Festival by writing to mladen.savkovic@bitef.rs. In order to book your transfer, you will need to provide the date, time and address for pick-up and drop-off at least one week prior to the transfer dates.

Most crossings in the city centre are equipped with sound signals.

If you look for directions, the city centre has plenty of signage in Serbian and you should be able to find many restaurants with English menus. Some bus lines also notify passengers about bus stops in writing on a screen.

To know more about accessibility for the IETM Belgrade Focus Meeting, please go to: meeting venues, accommodation, restaurants. 

At the meeting

It is our aim to make the IETM Belgrade Plenary Meeting as accessible as possible. However, it may not be possible to offer all access requirements at every location and, therefore, we recommend that you check the location of your interest. 

The accessibility of each venue will be uploaded upon confirmation of the full programme. 

All accessibility details which are provided online are collected based on the information received from the venues' staff and their websites. If you need more information, please get in touch with the venues directly.

There will be a range of accessibility features available at the meeting.

As we have budget restrictions and are dependent on the local infrastructure, we cannot always guarantee that the conditions will be the same from one meeting to another. Nevertheless, for this meeting we are able to:

  • Offer a free registration for your support worker;
  • Send you a large print version of the programme;
  • Provide speech-to-text captions for all plenary sessions of the meeting programme – details of these services will be available online upon confirmation of the full programme;
  • Ensure that all the venues hosting the working programme and most venues hosting artistic performances are wheelchair accessible.

If you have any questions about the accessibility at the IETM Belgrade Plenary Meeting, please get in touch with us by writing to ietm@ietm.org.

 

LOCATIONS

Belgrade is located at the confluence of the river Sava and the Danube. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has been conquered by 40 armies, which explains its diverse cultural influences.

Travel

Getting to Belgrade

IETM is a strong advocate for railway travel, and we therefore encourage you to travel by land if you are able to.

Belgrade has only a few connections to other European cities by train. Belgrade Centar station, also known as Prokop, is the main railway station. You can check the location here

You can check the network map on the website here.
