Known as one of Europe’s best party cities, the nightlife in Belgrade is like no other. Party on the riverbank by night and walk the café-lined streets of Stari Grad during the day, to discover its neoclassical and Art Nouveau buildings. It almost seems as if the city is in perpetual celebration, with exhibitions throughout the year offering quality music, great food, and spirited people.
Visitors who fly to Belgrade can spend their evenings carousing on a ‘splavovi,’ a type of boat that frequents the city’s rivers. The Belgrade Fortress is a popular destination and includes Kalemegdan Park which houses a zoo and amusement park. Within the city you’ll find Republic Square, and nearby the National Theater and Serbian National Museum.
You’ll find a few trams and trolley cars that offer transportation throughout the city, but the best way to get around is by bus. You can buy tickets to Belgrade’s buses from news and tobacco kiosks for a reduced rate. Although the party scene is year-round, you can join in the festivities of the city’s Jazz Festival when you travel to Belgrade in October, or find cheap flights to Belgrade in February to see FEST, a regional film festival.
