During the summer, Ada Ciganlija is also a great spot to kick back and relax. It’s the sea of Belgrade, as the locals call it. There are many sports grounds and courts (soccer, basketball, golf, volleyball, etc.). On the shores of this lake-beach area, cafes selling ice cream and beer abound.

The most popular leisure activity in Belgrade is drinking coffee in one of the many pubs, bistros, and cafés (particularly on Strahinjia Bana street, often known as Silicon Valley). It’s odd, yet most establishments are filled all day – that is, during working hours. Downtown café, Buka bar, Movie bar, Iron café, Biblioteka café, Monza café-boat, Bibis café-boat, and many more should be visited. People who aren’t like folk or MTV music and don’t enjoy expensive coffee should avoid this street. There are coffee shops on virtually every corner in Belgrade that provide a more calm environment and are more tastefully built than those on Strahinjia Bana Boulevard.

Smederevo is approximately 50 kilometers from Belgrade. There are direct bus lines nearly every half hour, and the trip from Belgrade takes approximately an hour. It is regarded as Serbia’s unofficial rock ‘n’ roll capital due to the large number of rock artists and bands that reside or were born there. See Europe’s biggest lowland medieval stronghold (particularly at night when its lights create a unique romantic and magical ambiance) or attend a rock performance at “Moto Club Street Fighter,” which is situated on the Danube’s very bank. The town holds a historic festival named “Smederevska Jesen” (Smederevo Autumn) at the end of September, which is a celebration of grape and Serbian culture with numerous concerts and other events. During the festival, there is a carnival at the end of town, but AVOID IT since it is noisy and busy, and there isn’t much to see or do. Simply remain in the town center. The Museum of Smederevo has many Roman and medieval artifacts and collections, making it a must-see for history buffs.

Festivals and nightlife

New Year’s Eve

Restaurants, clubs, cafes, and hotels are typically fully booked for New Year’s Eve festivities that include food and live music.

However, the outdoor events in Belgrade and many other large towns like as Novi Sad, Niš, and Jagodina are the most well-known Serbian New Year’s celebrations. Cities are heavily adorned and illuminated as of mid-December. Because of the lingering impact of the ancient Julian calendar, the decorations stay until far into January. Belgrade is renowned across the area, particularly among former Yugoslav countries, as the place to go for big parties, concerts, and events. It is now customary for huge groups of Slovenes to go to their old capital to mark the start of a new year. Street festivities have grown into huge gatherings of hundreds of thousands of people, especially since the mid-1990s, to celebrate New Year on one of many sites around Belgrade.

In addition, on January 14, Serbians observe the so-called Serbian New Year, which is really New Year’s Eve according to the Eastern Church calendar. You may really relive New Year’s Eve between January 13 and 14.
