What to do and see in Belgrade, Serbia: The Best Sights & Landmarks

May 22, 2022 Layne Dawes

Belgrade's long and storied history is suggested by its architecture, which varies from Byzantine and Ottoman to neoclassic and romantic buildings in the older neighborhoods, and from Art Nouveau to brutalism and neo-Byzantine design in New Belgrade. The city's many theaters, museums, monuments and opera houses boast a deep and fissured cultural life while the beaches and rivers attract sunbathers, sports enthusiasts and partygoers on the popular floating river barges that serve as nightclubs.

Skadarlija

Reviewed By Lam760 - Nottingham, United Kingdom

A cobbled street in the old town part of Belgrade, and if your looking for a great place to have evening meal this is the street lined with restaurants bars each side of the cobbled road on a slight incline, wear suitable footwear, unlike some ladies I seen wearing highheeels they did struggle, there’s trees over hanging some restaurants at night it’s all lit up the seats outside was the ones to get (weather permitting) there’s a group of 3 gentle go from restaurant to restaurant with their instruments and play at your table and sing your requested songs, like us a group we sang along they loved it so did the restaurant owners obviously creating a nice cheerful atmosphere. All the restaurants menu are varied, we ended up sitting at the first one on the right walking down, mostly authentic Serbian food and great mixed grills, there’s a bar called the red bar which we called for a few beers too it was all reasonably priced food and drink 4500 dinar for starters mains and drinks for 4 Pearson’s, walk to the bottom of the street turn right then double back on yourself and there’s some great bars there too. We found a real ale pub with music and stayed till late. Great place just like rest of the city but this is my favourite for both having a beer or eating or combination of both. Can’t wait to go back. One very impressed English tourist ❤️

Church of the Holy Mother of God

Beautiful Church on a Kalemegdan. It's beautiful both from the outside (covered in ivy) and from the inside, where you can find a very peculiar detail - a chandelier made from bullets fired during the First World War.

Knez Mihailova

Reviewed By ArmyRangeratMIT - Wayne, United States

Staying at the Moskva Hotel and ready for adventure, I dropped my bags and headed out for a walk down the famous pedestrian street… My senses were immediately tickled by the smell of mulled wine, and as I sipped it nice and hot, I passed by kiosks with local artists and lots of shops… Then on to Saint Sava’s and the fortress, and my first jaunt in Belgrade was a success!!

The Millenary Monument

Reviewed By stefanmX8745AD

A nice walk (slightly uphill) through the old part of Zemun leads you through the rows of Austro-Hungarian houses to a beautiful tower. Great view of the city and the rivers are available nearby and you can take different routes back to the city and find good restaurants beneath the hill, on the Danube river quay...
