The domestic currency is the Serbian Dinar (RSD).
The exchange rate is 1 € = approx. 114 RSD.
You can exchange foreign currency in exchange offices and banks. Be aware that it might be difficult to exchange coins here, so bring the paper bills.
There is no significant difference in the exchange rates, except at the airport, hotels and sometimes restaurants.
Many of the banks in Serbia have ATMs. Visa, Master card and other cards can be used, but always ask in advance if you plan to pay something with it.

You are allowed to bring the following into Serbia without facing taxes: 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco; 1 liter of wine and 1 liter of spirits; 1/4 liter of Eau de Cologne and a ‘reasonable’ quantity of perfume; 2 photo cameras; 1 movie camera; 1 pair of binoculars; 1 pocket electronic calculator; camping equipment and 1 bicycle.

Foreigners are allowed to bring their medications, but are advised to declare the quantity on the entry to Serbia, so they won’t have any problems leaving the country with it.
