  • By train There is only one train per day and it's route is: Belgrade - Bucharest with major stops in Vršac and Timişoara. It departs at 6PM every day to Timişoara and at 7AM to Belgrade. Pass control and customs are made at the train station in Vršac and usually last for about 20 minutes for the whole train to be checked. Ride duration is approximately more than 2 hours, the train going faster when on Romanian territory. Pass control and customs are made at Stamora-Moravita, Romania). The ticket in one direction from Vršac to Timişoara is 540 RSD (as of January 2011).

Although Vršac is just 12 kilometers from Romanian border, connections are rather poor. It is, however, easy to get a cab to the border for about 10 euro, walk over the border and take a Romanian cab/hitchhike in the direction of Timişoara from there. The cab from the Romanian border to Timişoara will be expensive, so it is advisable to first negotiate a price with the taxi driver.

Town is very small and very compact, easily covered by foot, but reaching for example Vršac Tower can be time-wasting, good solution may be taking taxi which is very affordable.
