Train Station for trains from Sofia and to Zagreb

Hello, I will be arriving by train from Sofia on August 20 and leave by train to Zagreb on 22 August.

Can anyone confirm which are the stations for the train coming in from Sofia and which station do I take the train to Zagreb? Also where would be good area to stay for this 2 night stopover in Belgrade. Thank you.

The only active train station from now on is Železnička stanica Beograd centar - Prokop

https:/…5184

The old one in the city center is closed.

For 2 nights I would choose city center, so just look for Stari grad, though Vracar area is very nice to explore the city of you are willing to walk more.

Well, I have to admit that I am really confused with information about departure and arrivals of trains. Yesterday I've called the customer service and been told that all trains are coming and departure from Prokop. This morning I called as well, asked particularly for Bar Belgrade as my friends just arrived and the operator told me this night train from Bar is coming to Topcider (and it is), but there is another train from Bar coming to Prokop.

So, I asked also for Sofia Zagreb and been told there is no direct train from Sofia to Zagreb. So, the lady told me the train from Sofia are coming to Topcider train station and the departure to Zagreb is from Prokop train station.

no direct train? or only direct train from Sofia. From the timetables

…srbrail.rs/ZSRedVoznje/…en

the 1490 train seems to be a direct train leaving Sofia 0840 (or 0940 Bulgraian time) and arriving Topcider 1826.

Correct..but what I said there is no direct line Sofia Zagreb.

So, Sofia Belgrade arrives at Topcider

Belgrade Zagreb departure is from Prokop.

Sofia to Belgrade train.

I’m in Sofia now and the nice lady at Sofia Central international train counter said the direct train from Sofia to Belgrade will stop at Belgrade Central and not Topcider. We shall see on monday.

The train leaves Sophia at 0940 Bulgaria time and arrives Belgrade 1835 and costs 45 Lev. Cash only.

There is a Florentina bus which leaves from the depot next to the train station at 2.30 pm and gets into Belgrade at 9.30pm and it costs 25EUR (23.50 for Seniors).

Apparently, the bus is the preferred option as the trains are basic but I’m a train junkie.
