Experience Belgrade: what to see, what to do
Belgrade's city centre isn't too big and easily explore on foot although a Belgrade car hire wouldn't be a bad idea either. Essentials to visit include the fortress, shopping along Knez Mihailover Street and a peek around one of the city's palaces.
Essentials in Belgrade
Belgrade Fortress: The massive fortress atop the hill was once an important fort but today it's the city' central park. It offers some spectacular views over the river, where the Danube and the Sava meet.
Knez Mihailova Street: This pedestrian street in central Belgrade is a must. It's lined in shops and cafes and is packed day and night. Street performers give spectators their best shows for pocket change and on a summer's day you won't be able to pass up an ice cream cone from the gelato stand.
Temple of Saint Sava: Serbia's largest Orthodox Temple was built in 1935 and is a symbol of the city. The marble and plaster-work is incredible and is one of the finest temples in this part of Europe.
