Nightlife

Home to one of the first breweries in Serbia, Cetinjska Street is among the most modern, artistic, and trendy strips in the city. If you’re looking for hip coffee shops and bars, you’ll want to be sure to make this a destination. 

If you’re still feeling thirsty, Samo Pivo, Kas, and Zaokret are popular watering holes to help you immerse yourself in Belgrade’s vibrant beer history. Rakia is the fruit brandy popular in Serbia, and you can try it at Rakia Bar. And if you’d prefer a coffee instead of alcohol, be sure to pay a visit to Koffein or Kafeterija.

Museums

Speaking of history, there’s no better place to explore Serbia’s history than through a visit to the National Museum,  which aims to document and safeguard the history of both the country and Europe as a whole.

The Museum of Contemporary Art – Belgrade, Museum of Illusions, and the Nikola Tesla Museum also offer cultural and educational experiences.

Sports

What better way to see a new city than by running with its locals? The Belgrade Running Club offers a unique view of the city for both beginners and competitive runners alike.

If you prefer to watch athletics rather than participate, the Belgrade Dance Festival offers extraordinary performances and is not to be missed.
