Belgrade New Year 2017

Belgrade New Year 2017

HELLO.  🙂  If you think that Belgrade is somewhere between Europe and Asia – well, you’re right. If you think that Belgrade is on the way to Greece, you’re right again. All roads lead to Belgrade. Belgrade means white town, and that’s the name which ancient Slavs gave it. It is not white now, but is more charming.

To write about Belgrade requires to live in it, and to live with it. Only those who live that way can help you to discover the city’s secret charm, and you will love it. Belgrade is a traffic chaos at noon and bohemian ambience of restaurants and coffe bars, with music full of joy and full of sorrow, in the evening; Belgrade has busy European streets and the forgotten peace of the wild banks of the Sava and Danube Rivers. To learn how to consume Belgrade, bear in mind the fallowing:

  • it is an ever changing city (this guide tries hard to record the changes), witch gives it the attraction of unpredictable
  • if you lose your way, it is the fisrt sign of an adventure
  • you can visit Belgrade anytime year around, but it is most pleasent in springtime, early fall, and New Year.

Spirit of Belgrade Tour

In the heart of the city is the Terazije Street, which extends to the most popular pedestrian street – Knez Mihailova (Prince Michael Street). Every adult Belgradian can tell you where those two streets are. At the end of the Balkanska Street is Moskva Hotel, the central and most beautiful building at Terazije, also one of the reference points in the downtown area. Heading northwest from the Moskva Hotel by a small fountain (Terazije fountain), you will reach Knez Mihailova, which opens to the wide Squere of the Republic on the right side, short after the beginning of the street. There you will recognize two buildings, the National Theater, and National Museum, and the Prince Michael’s monument (the horseman). At the end of Knez Mihailova is the big park Kalemegdan and the medieval Belgrade Fortress, built over the Sava River’s mouth. The view from Kalemegdan will help you understand where and how some parts of the city are located. If you spend New Year 2017 in Belgrade, we can be your hosts and guides.
