Belgrade Serbia travel guide – Things to do and see in Belgrade
Belgrade (Београд), which means the “White City” is the capital and largest city of Serbia. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. It’s one of the oldest metropolises in Europe, with settlements unceasingly remaining here for at least 7000 years. Belgrade rests on the relics of a prehistoric city. The first urban settlement was built in the 3rd century BC by the Celts. Due to its tactical location, the city has been conquered by the Celts, Romans, Goths, Huns, Ottomans, and then fought over by the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires. It has been fought over in 115 wars and razed to the ground 44 times. Belgrade was bombed a few times in the 20th century, both in World War I and War War II and once again by NATO in 1999.

We didn’t expect that
We left Novi Sad on Tuesday with a bad start. First Matt left his phone in the hotel and had to walk all the way back. Then getting a bus ticket was a little pain because nobody couldn’t speak English. On the end they sold us three tickets so we paid 15€ instead of 10€. We didn’t even bother and were glad to catch the bus to Belgrade.
Driving through nice countrysides and spotted many German companies ? didn’t expect that.
Belgrade was a bit rough at arrival but once we did a city tour it turned out to be such a great place. The center is really modern with huge shopping streets. Cafes and restaurants everywhere.
A fortress with tanks and dinosaurs park. Just a massive area for young and old.
The best is you feel like the only tourist. But you can tell already it will pick up very soon. They are building like crazy.
We rented some bikes today to cycle to a huge swimming area and drove by what will be some day a beach waterfront area. It looks already amazing and some smooth cycle path.
The nightlife is along the river, all the club’s are on a boat. Which is a great idea to keep the troubles away from the city center.
Well this country has it all. For now it is super cheap and no matter in which restaurant you go, the food is always delicious. And yes we felt safe.
That is what travel is all about, experience different countries and with Serbia we really didn’t know what to expect. We thought we will see a poor country, ugly buildings and dangerous areas. But it was all the opposite.
Of course people are on a low salary but they seem to manage their living very well. We only came to #Serbia because I really wanted to see Budapest again and Matt sorted this whole trip out for us. So glad we went now because it won’t be like this forever, sadly. Yes us tourist destroy countries like this. Airbnb will push locals out of their cities. Just like you seen in many places already.
Looking back I was actually shocked about Budapest, many homeless people and dirty streets. Who thought #Belgrade would do so much better ?
