Are you looking for tips on things to do in Belgrade?
As part of our city guides series, we interviewed Zorica from Eurotribe.com who was born and raised in Belgrade.
Zorica shares with us her insider tips on the best things to do in Belgrade including where to eat, sleep, drink, shop and explore.
Belgrade is mostly famous for its nightlife and attracting younger travelers especially from Europe,
but it has a lot more to offer than just that.
It is one of the oldest European cities with a rich cultural heritage, long history and numerous entertainment events throughout whole year to satisfy different types of travelers.
It is a very beautiful place with buzzing and progressive nature and hospitable people. It is also
one of the emerging destinations in Europe and now is the right time to pay a visit.
A lot of tourists visit Belgrade for a city break. If you only come for a weekend be sure to explore:
If you decide to stay a bit more than just a weekend in Belgrade, go to Avala. It is a mountain that’s great for walking and relaxation and its location is 16 km away of Belgrade.
Avala Tower is situated here, the tallest tower in Serbia and the Balkan region.
For local specialties go to Skadarlija where numerous Serbian traditional restaurants are located.
Another good restaurant for Serbian cuisine is Kolarac in Prince Mihailo street.
If you love sushi go to Moon Sushi Bar. Great sweetshops are Choko Cafe and Snezhana.
If you want to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, jams, fish etc. be sure to check Kalenic market.
Mešano meso (Mixed grill) which includes ćevapčići (a grilled dish of minced meat),
pljeskavice (burgers), kobasice (sausages) etc. all on one plate.
Wedding cabbage is another great national dish.
Go to the bar of the Federal Association Of Globe Trotters, they serve great cocktails and the interior of the bar is pretty cool.
Rakija (brandy) is an important part of Serbian culture and a great place to try it is Rakia bar.
For coffee head to Obilicev venac, a very popular cafe zone.
Another place worth visiting is The Three Carots Irish pub.
Youth Hostel Association of Serbia has the biggest hostel network in the country and on their website you can find a list of numerous hostels.
For budget hotels I recommend Hotel Royal, which is located near Belgrade Fortress and Knez Mihailova Street – two of the most famous landmarks of the city.
Belgrade has a lot of festivals and events to satisfy everyone’s taste!
Guitar Art Festival, FEST – the most important international film fest in Serbia, Belgrade Marathon, Belgrade Fashion Week, ATP Tennis tournament, Museum Night, Belgrade Beer Fest, Boat Carnival etc.
The best way to discover Belgrade is by walking. Unfortunately the city is not very bicycle friendly.
Public transport is provided through a network of bus, trolleybus and tram routes and the tickets can be bought in public transport vehicles or kiosks throughout the city.
Yes free WiFi is available in cafes, bars, restaurants, shopping malls etc.
Early Autumn or Spring.
Novi Sad – Serbia’s second largest city.
If you leave Belgrade in early morning you can see some of the most famous attractions of the city, drink a coffee or have lunch and come back to Belgrade in the evening. A great way to spend a day outside of Belgrade if you have some spare time left.
JAT Airways is Serbia’s national flag carrier which offers the most flights worldwide.
There are a few low-cost carriers like Wizz Air, Germanwings, Flyniki and others that offer cheap European flights.
If you are visiting Serbia from other Balkan countries get a bus or train. Bus tickets are a little bit more expensive but bus network is also more efficient.
Go to Gardoš in Zemun and take a walk through the cobblestoned streets and also go to Gardoš Tower, which offers a panoramic view of Belgrade.
I was born here, it’s my city. I love its good and bad sides. It is mysterious and I’m glad that it is becoming more progressive. It is rapidly changing so everyday you can discover something new which makes it interesting for locals and tourists.
