See history and art, enjoy great food and nightlife, then catch a memorable train to Montenegro and see Budva, a coastal city-fortress with magnificent beaches and Sveti Stefan, a true Adriatic gem. Quick Tips: Best time to go is summer, but the countryside is gorgeous all year long. Summer brings out the festival season, with national folklore, jazz and classical music performances in many towns.

Skadarlija

Restaurant

Quote:
Belgrade version of Paris' Montmartre, this cobble-stoned bohemian distrtict was once the favourite gathering place of famous writers and artists, and today attracts up to 20,000 people every day to its many taverns, restaurants and night spots. For truly authentic atmosphere, try Tri Sesira (Three Hats) and Dva Jelena (Two Deers) restaurants or the interesting nightspots Dzungle, Blah-Blah or Guli. The 'in' music at these places is usually of the jazzy-soul variety, acid-jazz and a bit of techno. Anyone spending any time in Skadarlija won't miss encountering a Gypsy brass band playing the soul music of the Balkans: a lively cacophony of horns mixed with Turkish drums.

Attraction

Quote:
Ada Ciganlija is what Stanley Park is to Vancouver and Golden Gate Park to San Francisco, Belgrade's loveliest park, is Ada, as it's locally called, is an island in the Sava River just upstream from the city and the locals' favorite spot for recreation. Swim (there's an area for skinny dipping), rent a bike, sip a cold beer from one of the cafes, or just hike up and down the banks of Yugoslavia's longest river, Sava.

Kalemegdan Citadel

Attraction

Kalemegdan Citadel Photo, Belgrade, Serbia
Quote:
A testament to Belgrade's 2,500-year history, Kalemegdan Citadel is a must see. View the remains of centuries-old defense walls, churches, tombs and Turkish baths. Also offers an outstanding view of the rivers Danube and Sava, and of the city's hallmark monument entitled Victor.

Also at Kalemegdan, for a truly bizarre twist, visit the Military museum which is currently exhibiting artifacts from the recent NATO bombing campaign.

Entrance is free.
