What to visit?

Belgrade  FortressBelgrade Fortress. It is hard not to visit the Fortress when visiting Belgrade, because the main pedestrian zone in Knez Mihailova Street ends right in front of it. The Fortress represents one of the most perserved complexes of that type in Europe, and Kalemegdan park, surrounding the Fortress it is the largest in Belgrade. The first Fortress was built by the Romans,  today’s look is characterized by excellent preservation, more museums and restaurants, as well as a fantastic view over the Danube and the Sava from Kalemegdan’s terrace. Within Kalemegdan, there are the Roman well, Belgrade Zoo, Military Museum and many other sights. We especially reccommend St. Ruzica Church and St. Petka Church with a miraculous spring.

The city centre. The main city walking area includes Kralja Milana Street, Terazije, the Square of the Republic and Knez Mihailova Street, where the final part is a pedestrian zone. Regardless of where you are in the wider city centre, you will see many famous buildings, lots of shops, cinemas and other interesting places. Belgrade is an old hystorical city, with religious spirit, though external marks reflect modrnity, in quiet churches and monasteries lies the Holy spirit of Christianity and the ancient holy relics definitely worth a look. Visit a St. Sava’s Cathedral in Vracar and a small church of St. Sava next to it where you can see the copy of miraculous icon of the Holy Virgin. Ethnographich Museum is especially interesting, testifying about the ancestors of the Serbian people and Nikola Tesla Museum with works and installations of this genious scientist.
You should also visit Skadarlija. Skadarlija is a bohemian quarter in the centre of Belgrade (Skadarska Street) visited by 20,000 people every day. Skadarska Street, 500 m long, is located in the very centre of Belgrade, paved with cobblestones, as it used to be in Turkish times, and it kept  the antique look today.   Due to vicinity of the National Museum, at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century lived many actors. Besides actors, there were also other artists, poets, writers and painters. For that reason there are lots of taverns, some of the oldest ones in Belgrade.  Many artists of the Serbian history of culture greeted the dawn here, such as: Đura Jakšić, Danilo Danilović, Dobrica Milutinović and Čiča Ilija Stanojević. Perfect opportunity to eat and drink with the sounds of violin and tamburitza.

Dorćol bank of the Danube. One of the most interesting banks, especially due to beautiful view. Promenade is a few kilometres long, connected to the Sava quay of the old part of the city. The whole right bank of the Sava from Ada Ciganlija to the confluence of the Sava and the Danube and further down the Danube  is a long promenade, over 10 km long.

Bulevar Kralja Aleksandra. A long boulevard that begins in the wider city centre, known for lots of different shops. In the nearest part of the Boulevard to the centre, there is Tašmajdan park, ideal place for relaxation in the very city centre, whereas further down the Boulevard there are excellent pastry shops and restaurants. This part of  Belgrade is a meeting place for young people, not only for shopping but also due to vicinity of some faculties.

Košutnjak. When you finish visiting all previous locations, we reccommend you visit Košutnjak, a great forest park in the southern part of the city. Begin walking close to the centre, from the Museum of History of Yugoslavia  and in one and a half hours you will get to the highest point of Košutnjak, close to Pioneer city. Have a rest in one of the cafes or restaurants and make sure you visit he swimming pool at Košutnjak in summer.
