And the people who live there…

Get to know us, we are Slavs who, after the Celts, the Romans and many others inhabited this city that rests in the embrace of two rivers, Sava and the Danube, where the view from the Belgrade Fortress replenishes your energy and reminds you of the beauty of nature and of life. It is a place where the border between East and West fades, where the mixture of cultures, traditions and customs have planted a deep feeling of hospitality among Belgrade’s citizens.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime...

Take a walk down Knez Mihailova Street, always full of Belgrade people, where old and modern architectures convey the spirit and the creativity of local and foreign architects. Explore the Belgrade Fortress, where over 114 great battles were fought for this city. Visit the new urban neighborhood Sava Mala, unofficially called the Little Berlin of Belgrade. Have lunch or dinner in the bohemian street of Skadarlija, with delicious food and great homemade wine and rakija (local brandy), to the songs of local musicians that stop time and awaken the senses. Near our hostel is the district of Zemun. The highest point in Zemun is the Gardoš hill, overlooking the entire Zemun, Danube and the Belgrade city center. The area around Gardoš is known for its narrow and cobblestone streets and specific architecture. At the foot of the hill, on the Zemunski Kej (the Zemun quay) on the banks of the Danube, there are many restaurants with live music, cafes and clubs. It is a popular promenade, where local fishermen and artists, with their river boats and galleries. Get acquainted with the spirituality of the city and its religion through churches, monasteries and the greatest orthodox Temple of Saint Sava in Vračar.

If you are feeling lucky...

You will certainly enjoy one of the film, art or design festivals, but also one of the newest beer festivals (our hostel is located near the location where the festival takes place, as well as many concerts of local and international stars), ship carnivals, sports events – the Belgrade Marathon, soccer and basketball games. The Nikola Tesla Museum, dedicated to one of the greatest scientists in history, will show you the secrets of how electricity was made and how it was tamed. There are many other museums whose installations tell the story of the city, its tradition and customs that make it unique.

And even if you need a bit of rest...

Visit one of 2000 night clubs, discos, bars and cafes in Belgrade, where after a long night of partying the light of dawn comes to remind you that night will come again when the day is done, bringing with it new energy and fun. During the day, as you wait for the sun to set, drink some coffee and eat some fresh sweet water fish or barbeque.

Or if you love nature...

Take a walk down the Ada Ciganlija lake, with an 8km long bike path and walk, that you can reach from the hostel by bicycle. There you can swim, fish (Ada safari), play golf or sports at one of 60 sports fields around Ada Ciganlija.
