The international dialing code for Serbia is 381, and the dialing code for Belgrade for domestic calls is 011.
To dial any city in Serbia from abroad you must dial the appropriate international code, e.g. 00, followed by the dialing code for Serbia 381 and then the dialing code for the city (without the leading 0).
Example - Dialing from United States to Belgrade, Serbia: Dial: 011 + 381 + 11 + (local number)
To call abroad, dial the international access code (00), followed by the country code, the dialing code of the town (without 0), and then finally the phone number.
Example - Dialing from Serbia to the United States: Dial: 00 + 1 + (U.S.) Area Code + 7 digits (local number)
Try to avoid calling international numbers using both landline and mobile phones because it could be very expensive. Instead of it try Skype packages, Voip or even MT:S Ino Call via your cell and regular phone.
