Crossroads between the East and the West, Belgrade has experienced many metamorphoses in two thousand years of existence. Successively occupied by the Turks, integrated into the Austro-Hungarian Empire, federated in the Yugoslavia of Tito, bombed by NATO in 1999 during the war of Kosovo, the city makes up for lost time by dazzling in the festival, to the point of becoming one of the most animated capitals of Eastern Europe. Also known for its relaxed lifestyle, Belgrade has the spicy charm of the South Slavs.
The essential visits
Here are some ideas of the best things to do in Belgrade if you want to go there for a longer or shorter weekend.
- Belgrade Fortress and Kalemegdan Park: You cannot miss this attraction in Belgrade! The fortress is at the end of Knez Mihajlova Pedestrian Street in the "Stari Grad". It is one of the largest fortresses in Europe, and the Kalemegdan Park around the fortress is the largest in Belgrade.
- Skadarlija district: Skadarska Street is home to some of Belgrade's most famous restaurants and cafés, as well as some art galleries. This paved street also has antique and souvenir shops, night bakeries and folk song groups.
- Museums in Belgrade: There are several museums to visit in Belgrade if you have time. We recommend the National Museum, the Military Museum, and the Museum of History of Yugoslavia, the Nikola Tesla Museum, the Ethnographic Museum or the Museum of Contemporary Art.
- The island and district of Ada Ciganlija on the Sava: It was the largest river island on the Sava until it was connected to the city by two dams. This turned an arm of the river into an artificial lake, which is now Belgrade's most popular waterfront resort, attracting nearly 100,000 visitors a day during the summer months.
Nightlife and night atmosphere in Belgrade
Serbs are known for their fondness for party, good food and alcohol. As a result, it is not surprising that Belgrade is becoming more and more popular with tourists coming to enjoy its "night life".
To party in Belgrade, there is a huge choice between the rivers of the Danube and Sava, or the neighborhoods of the center known for the fiesta day and night, almost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The barges (restaurants and discotheques), restaurants, discotheques, lounge bars, cafés, everything is there.
The "Silicone Valley" (as Strahinjica Bana is called) is THE must for the city's golden youth. Many discos are prized by known DJs that often play there. Similarly, a large number of international stars come here, for prices far below that of other places in Europe!
