The Belgrade-Novi Sad railway, within the Belgrade-Budapest international railway, officially started operating on Saturday. The ride on the first high-speed train on that route included Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and members of the Serbian government.
The train arrived in Novi Sad just before 12 o’clock, in about 35 minutes.
“This will further bring the Serbians and Hungarians closer, Budapest will be only two, two and a half hours away from us,“ said Vucic, assessing the moment as historic.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said she was too happy about this, adding this only shows how different Serbia is today.
“I can only imagine how much it will affect the quality of life, when a student from Belgrade is able to travel to Novi Sad for classes. This is new Serbia,” she stressed.
Hungary’s Orban noted that the two countries and two capital cities are being connected today and that the life was made easier for the Serbians and the Hungarians. HE also said that the friendship between the two nations has never been closer than it is today.
The train on the Belgrade-Novi Sad section will run an average of 200 kilometers per hour, according to the timetable it should run five times a day, and the ticket price during the promotional period will be 300 dinars one way, while the children under the age of seven accompanied by parents will travel free of charge.
