Today I’ll be taking you for a virtual walk through Belgrade, one of the most amazing cities of Europe, and my hometown. For the beginning, some quick info: Belgrade is one of the oldest capitals of the world, more than 7000 years old. It was destroyed and rebuilt time and again by the countless civilizations that have left their mark on the city. Today Belgrade is a dynamic town with a unique culture and lifestyle, and a vibrant nightlife.
Knez Mihailova street and it’s surroundings
Knez Mihailova is Belgrade’s main street, and a place you really can’t miss. It features very interesting architecture, several museums and art galleries, world-famous brands’ shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also a great place to meet people.

Belgrade’s central park and fortress – Kalemegdan is a one-of-a kind open-air museum, but also a romantic place with spectacular views over Belgrade’s two huge rivers, the Sava and Danube.

Belgrade rivers and lake
Belgrade is located on the confluence of two large rivers, the Sava and the Danube. There’s also an artificial lake with 6 km of beaches better known as Ada Ciganlija. Ada is the favorite recreation zone of the Belgraders and their guests, and features all kinds of sports, including even bungee jumping!
