More cruise ships and passengers on the rivers in Serbia

The Port Governance Agency recorded 365 port calls and 46,674 embarked and disembarked passengers at international passenger ports in Serbia in the first five months of the year. Compared to the results achieved in the same period last year, port calls increased by 4.6 percent, while the number of passengers increased by 44 percent.

The most port calls made in Belgrade - 153, followed by 97 in Novi Sad, 65 in Donji Milanovac and 40 in Golubac. The international passenger terminal in Smederevo recorded four port calls. In addition, the first cruiser docked at the newly opened terminal in Sremska Mitrovica.

When it comes to the further development of infrastructure for cruising, the Agency has previously invested funds in the construction of international passenger terminals in Zemun, Šabac and Ram. These locations will be opened by the beginning of the nautical season in 2024.

In order to fully utilize the nautical potential of our country, the Agency, together with the Government of Serbia, launched the project "Sail through Serbia”, with aim to construct new marinas, international passenger terminals and pontoons for international, domestic and cross-border liner and canal traffic. It is planned that in the coming period, the first investments will be launched in the construction of a marina in Veliko Gradište and dredging at the locations of the future marinas in Smederevo and Kladovo.

The project will significantly contribute to the increase in revenue from waterway passenger traffic, the increase in the number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting our country from the rivers, as well as the positioning of Serbia on the nautical maps of Europe and the world.
