A Quick Meals Place

Serbians love meat they usually love their quick meals locations. After you have tasted a typical Balkan burger you’ll by no means wish to return to the likes of McDonald’s.

Attempt a “gurmanska pljeskavica” (beef patty with cubes of bacon and cheese labored in); there’s nothing higher than that after an evening out. Really useful locations embody “Loki” (nook of ul. Kralja Petra and ul. Gospodar Jovanova), “Sis” (ul. Goce Delceva 27), and “Stepin Vajat” (ul. Vojvode Stepe 2I).

A Pub

Belgrade is famend for its nightlife and what higher method to begin your evening out than with a cool beer or a pleasant cocktail. Streets like Obilicev venac or Strahinica bana supply loads of bars and pubs. The latter is dubbed “Silicone Valley” for the excessive variety of silicone-enhanced items on show at evening.

In case you’re in search of one thing a bit extra hidden, attempt to discover “Klub Svetskih Putnika” (also referred to as “The Federal Affiliation of Globe Trotters”; bul. Despota Stefana 7). For a conventional ambiance with gypsy music you’ll have to go to a “kafana“, e.g. “Blek panters” (Ada Ciganlija).

A Membership

Whenever you’ve had just a few drinks and the evening continues to be younger, then you need to head out to the golf equipment. Positively take a look at the rafts (“splavovi“) on the Sava and Danube rivers. They’re a bit mainstream and a bit costlier however typical for Belgrade (a preferred one consists of “Freestyler“; truthful warning: don’t chat up random women in these locations, this might finish badly).

In case you’re in search of a extra different crowd take a look at the golf equipment within the centre, e.g. “Francuska Sobarica” (ul. Francuska 12), “Siprazje” (ul. Golsvordijeva 13) or “Corba Kafe” (ul. Bra?e Krsmanovi?a 3; good dwell music).

Be aware that many of those golf equipment could also be quickly closed as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.

One thing Else

And now that I’ve talked in size about choices for meals and drinks, I notice I ought to most likely additionally suggest one thing that higher suits the phrase “sight”.

So, when in Belgrade these are the issues to see:
