The not yet too touristy Serbian capital is full of contrasts due to the mix of Eastern and Western influences, which is due to the central location. The city is visitable for both culture lovers and architecture lovers and shop fanatics will shop until they drop in Belgrade’s shopping mecca.
The beating cultural heart can be found in the Savalama district. You’ll find a mix of industrial, street art and cozy cafes here. Exhibitions and modern art is housed in the former dilapidated warehouses. A nice place to visit in this district is KC Grad, a kind of cultural center where you can go for drinks, live music and exhibitions.
The city’s hotspot, however, is Skadarlija district, which can also be compared to the Montmartre in Paris because of the artist’s character and the many restaurants and live music in the evening.
The St. Sava Cathedral is very impressive and you should definitely not hesitate to visit. To take a dip in history you can pay a visit to the mausoleum of Tito or Kalemegdan Citadel, the museum where you can learn all about the 2000 years of history of Belgrade. It also gives you a great view over the city and you see the Sava and Danube river come together.
