In this episode, things to see and do in Belgrade, David’s first stop is Kalemagdan Fortress which consist of the old citadel and Kalemegdan Park on the confluence of the Danube River and the Sava River. The meeting of the Sava river into the Danube is one of the most beautiful natural lookouts in the capital.
The location of the fortress is right next to old Belgrade of Stari Grad. Knez Mihailova Street is the main pedestrian street in the city center. Next up we visit Ada Lake, a river island that has been turned into a peninsula. During the summer months, Belgradian’s come to relax at the beach at Ada.
Now we head to the Church of Saint Sava during Easter service. The Church of Saint Sava is a Serbian Orthodox church located on the Vracar plateau in Belgrade. When the church is completed it will be the second largest Orthodox church in the world after the Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi.
The next location we visit is Tasmajdan Park, a public park in the surrounding urban neighborhood of central Belgrade. The park was bombed by NATO in 1999. There are two churches, St. Mark’s Church “Serbian Orthodox” and a Russian Orthodox Church. Now we head out to try Burek a Balkan staple food! Burek is a dough filled with either cheese, spinach, or meat. David tries both a cheese and a spinach and cheese.
Republic Square is considered to be the heart of Belgrade! After we head to Skadarlija, the bohemain area of Belgrade. This is a great restaurant street and the perfect place to try Rakia! Bucko, is a famous pizza place in Belgrade. Our friend Ivan from Belgrade VIP thinks this is a must try and we do too!
Now off to Zemun, it was once a separate town from Belgrade. It’s located directly across the river Sava. It’s a beautiful place to relax and enjoy its romantic architecture!
So that was David’s list of top things to see and do in Belgrade. Definitely a must visit capital when you visit the Balkans.
