Popular Destinations in Belgrade
Looking for activities once your private jet arrives in Belgrade? History and architecture are the two major draws when it comes to cultural tourism in Belgrade. Some of the most visited attractions are listed below:
Beogradska Tvrđava: Located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, this imposing fortress is likely one of Belgrade’s most significant landmarks. In addition to being home to the Kalemegdan park, Beogradska Tvrdava also houses several museums. The structure is a testament to Belgrade’s strategic importance to the Austrian, Serbian, Ottoman, Byzantine, and Roman empires.
Blaznavac: Blaznavac is where nightlife lovers go for pre-drinks. Not so much a bar, Blaznavac is more an art gallery and café. Although pocket-sized, it makes up for its lack of size by offering some of the quirkiest collectibles and murals around. Young Belgrade artists can display their best works accompanied by spoken word events, cocktails, and live music. Those who don’t enjoy nightlife are also welcome here; snacks and coffee during the day are a perfect treat.
Srpska Kafana: Here you will find a lively crowd of intellectuals, artsy folk, and theater types. Srpska Kafana is a local institution serving up top-notch Siberian classic foods. It is famous for its delicious cuisine, and is classy, yet low-key. The most recommended dish is the pork stuffed with goat’s cheese, apple, porcini mushrooms and cranberry sauce (listed on the menu as Duke’s Steak or kneževa šnicla).
Museum of Yugoslav History: If you visit just one museum in Belgrade, the Museum of Yugoslav History is it. The tumultuous yet fascinating history of Yugoslavia is represented by a collection of over 200,000 artifacts. Included in the historical displays are priceless treasures, weapons, films, historical documents, artworks, photographs and more. If booked in advance (via email) English-speaking guides are available. The other English-speaking option is to join in a weekend tour. Also included on the museum grounds is Tito’s Grave.
Kafana Pavle Korčagin: As referenced earlier, the bars and nightlife in Belgrade are famous. So famous is this particular establishment that visitors are strongly advised to reserve a table online in advance. Kafana Pavle Korčagin is a table-thumping throwback lined with communist memorabilia. It’s grinning accordionists and revelers pack the place to the rafters nightly. Patrons are encouraged to “raise a glass to Tito” at this festive, frantic kafana.
