Cheap flights to Belgrade
Packed with vibrant nightlife, eclectic architecture and fascinating history, all in an idyllic riverside setting, Serbia's capital city, Belgrade makes an impressive city break destination. It offers great value for money, especially when it comes to food and drink, as you can pick up a pint of beer here for little more than £1.
The city’s great clubs and all-night opening times mean you can party until dawn. Belgrade nightlife centres on river barge clubs lining the riverbank. Or, if dancing is not your thing then head to one of the many bars to taste Serbia's national drink of Rakia (a fruity brandy). Take a riverside walk up to Belgrade's impressive new Ada Bridge and watch its sharp edges glimmer against the night sky.
Admire the eclectic architecture of the city’s theatres, monuments and museums from Byzantine, Ottoman eras and beyond. Head up to Belgrade Fortress which, having been invaded more than 100 times, has seen many historical battles. A walk around Belgrade Park and Fortress today is a much more peaceful experience and it’s free to enter.
Join the locals in Belgrade’s thriving café culture. Or, rummage around the arty Skadarlija quarter where cobbled streets lead to some of the city's oldest restaurants, serving up delicious Serbian dishes and revealing the sounds of traditional Starogradska (urban folk music).
Just outside the city centre, the Ada Ciganlija peninsula is a great spot in the summer to relax, have a picnic, swim and some watersports.
Join the party on the River Sava when the annual summer Belgrade Boat Festival takes over the river in August. It's a lively spectacle as dozens of boats of all sizes take part in a colourful flotilla.
January is party time in Belgrade, where even heavy snow can't keep spirits down. The New Year's Eve party carries on into the new year, when a mini carnival takes over the city's streets. Then on 6 January, Belgraders celebrate Orthodox Christmas Eve.
Head to Belgrade's city beach, Ada Ciganlija, when it hosts its annual summer Belgrade Beer Fest offshoot, the APA Beer Garden. During July and August, there'll be dozens of live gigs and plenty of excellent beer to go with them.
Check out Serbia's only Blue Flag beach in Ada Ciganlija, an island in the River Sava. It's Belgrade's playground, with pebbly beaches, cafés, water sports and cycle trails to enjoy all year round.
