You may relate Belgrade to things like long tradition or culture, but Belgrade Nightlife is the thing that makes this city so special. I bet that you won’t find a city with more restaurants, pubs, and clubs, at least in this part of the world. All-day fun, affordable prices, and famous Serbian hospitality are some of many trumps that this city has. So, let’s start with a quick nightlife tour.
There are many ways to have fun in Belgrade. Speaking of nightlife, in particular, there are actually two zones where all important-to-visit places actually are. First of all, there’s a downtown area. This part of the city is quite big, but locating your desired club or restaurant won’t be hard at all since most of them are positioned in two or three streets. The first street you should visit is called Skadarlija. This is a famous bohemian street, where you can find numerous restaurants with excellent food and traditional Serbian music.
Still, if you prefer a more active and up-to-date way of fun, go for streets like Strahinjica Bana or Terazije. Stahinjica Bana Street is particularly known as some kind of a promenade, where you can find the most beautiful girls of this city. In this street, you can find a variety of places, but most of them fancy restaurants.
In surrounding streets, you can find many pubs, where you can try craft beer and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. Same streets are also full of unique nightclubs, known as “kafana”. This is a mixture of traditional and modern, where you can see beautifully dressed up girls and enjoy both Serbian and foreign modern music.
All these clubs and pubs are good, but the real fun is actually at the other part of the city. Belgrade lies on two rivers, on the confluence of Sava and Danube, so it’s not wondering that there are hundreds of river clubs on both sides of the coastline. Commonly known as Splavovi (rafts), these are actually old ships and boats, redesigned to clubs and restaurants. If you wonder why people often say that Belgrade never sleeps, this is the answer.
These clubs work seven days a week. Even if it’s Monday, don’t worry, you will find live music or DJ’s performing. There is no such thing as visiting hours. These places work all night long, until down. Count on a hi-intensity fun and plenty of beautiful ladies, including famous television personas and starlets.
