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.
The annual Belgrade Jazz Festival takes over the Dom Omladine Beograda (Belgrade Youth Centre) from 26-30 October for an eclectic programme featuring mainly Balkan musicians. This 31st edition takes its cue from Latin countries, so expect sounds influenced by Portugal, Spain and Italy.
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.
Get to know Belgrade from the vantage point of a bicycle on a group or private bike tour of the city with iBike Belgrade. Take a leisurely ride along the the bike paths of the Danube and Sava rivers, or tackle some of Belgrade's hills by exploring the sights of the old town.
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.
