The Blue Train is a luxury tourist train once used for the needs of the former president of the SFR Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito. The interior of the train was made in the style of art deco and after more than half a century its appearance remained unchanged. This train last operated on the route between Ljubljana and Belgrade on May, the 5th when Tito’s remains were transferred to the capital.

Winter tour description:

The first day (November, 29th) – Friday

For passengers from Novi Sad, bus departure is at 10.00 from the parking lot beside the fairground (at the former Zlatna medalja restaurant).

The departure of the Blue Train from the Topcider Railway Station in Belgrade is at noon.

What follows is a pleasant ride, during which you’ll feel like you are the president of a country. You’ll travel in a mobile luxury suite equipped with luxurious lounges, rooms, restaurants, dining rooms, bathrooms and all other amenities that gave former President Tito complete comfort.

During the ride, you will be served a drink of your choice and a hot drink, and you’ll hear a story about the history and interesting facts about the Blue Train.

One of them is that the train houses the so-called “deaf room” in which Tito made state decisions and held confidential talks. In his study room, in which he signed the important state Acts, there is also a kind of precursor to a mobile phone, which he used as early as 1959 for contacting the senior officials in Yugoslavia.

These are the details we’ll reveal to you – everything else is a big (pleasant) surprise!
