Plane

The nearest is Belgrade International airport. Vrsac is situated in southeast part of Banat, 80 km away from Belgrade.

Bus

The local bus company http://www.stup.rs/ with routes from and to Belgrade and Novi Sad on an hourly basis.

Car

If you are aproaching Vrsac from Belgrade side, it would be the best to look for Pancevacki most in Belgrade, cross it and follow rute Pancevo – Vrsac.
If you are approaching from interior of Serbia by highway, it would be good to take turn off at Smederevo and Kovin. When crossing Danube river and enter Kovin, one should follow road sign towards Bela Crkva and after that towards Vrsac (additional 30 km from Bela Crkva).
If you are comming from north or western Vojvodina, you should follow road for Zrenjanin and then take road from Zrenjanin over Plandiste, towards Vrsac.

You should be careful about police patros and radars!!! They are based mostly ahead of cities or smaller cities, but aso on the road before Vrsac.
