In the modern history, in post war times, it used to be a capital of Yugoslavia, then from the year 2003 of Serbia and Montenegro, whereas from 2006 – as we already mentioned – of the Republic of Serbia.
If you decide to rest from the noise of the city, go to the hill Košutnjak, where you can find a beautiful forest. This place is called by citizens of Belgrad its lungs or the factory of oxygen.
Fortresses are located in the old town. You will see there orthodox churches, tombs and ancient excavations, and thanks to fortress’ location on the hill you can admire from there a beautiful panorama of the Sava and the Danube.
Belgrad – the capital and the biggest city of Serbia. It is one of the oldest European city, history of that place goes back in time for seven thousand years. Belgrad is a great spot to spend weekend at. Interesting way to sightsee it is a cruise by boat or a journey by touristic train in old style.
The city’s centre is situated on the right bank of the Danube, whereas on its second bank there are not largely inhabited suburbs. One of the most modern district of the city is the New Belgrad, created in the 50’s and still buoyantly developing.
It will be a great option for you, if you don’t imagine a weekend without a party. By riverbanks of Sava and Danube you will find many clubs and bars, vibrant all night long. Among them you can visit for instance club Tilt at boulevard Vojvode Bojovica 30, another spot where you can dance the night away is club Bank at Karadjordjeva 2-4. In bar Shake 'n’ Shake you can sip a drink while sitting comfortably on a sunbed.
In the middle of the city you will also find beaches! Ada Ciganlija is a peninsula and artificially created water tank. It is one of the most popular place in the neighbourhood. You will find there beaches, pitches, golf courts, you can rent water skis or canoes. Around the water tank there are many cafes, bars and clubs, that never sleeps in the summertime, offering gigs or beach parties.
Do you want to feel the vibe of Belgrad bohemianism? Step by Skadarlija street, where once poets used to meet to discuss. It is also a place, where many painters created their best works. Today the street is still full of life, thanks to artists that hang out there and plenty of cafes, souvenirs shops. A boulevard that also deserves your attention is Knez Mihailova, delineated in place where the main trading route of the city used to be in time when Romans were ruling it.
