Danube and Sava

A city being bathed by a river is always a great boon, but having the privilege of having two waterways on its doorstep is exceptional. Both the Sava and Danube rivers bathe Belgrade. Belgrade was founded over five thousand years ago, and its location at the confluence of the Sava and Danube Rivers has made it a city of enormous significance. From the top of the Belgrade Fortress, you can see the place where the two rivers cross. It is a fantastic scenery.

The Sava River is a tributary of the Danube and flows for almost a thousand kilometers. It flows through Slovenia, Croatia, along the northern border of Bosnia and Herzegovina, through Serbia, discharging into the Danube at Belgrade.

The Danube is the second largest river in Europe, after the Volga River. With its source in Germany, the Danube flows for more than 2800 kilometers through several countries, such as Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria and Romania.

Sava is a river of extraordinary beauty and power, and just before the confluence with the Danube, it forms a small lake, also known as “the sea of Belgrade” or Ada Ciganlija. Ada Ciganlija is a river island that has been transformed into a peninsula located in the course of the Sava River. This is one of the most popular refuges and the perfect destination for hot summer days.

Knez Mihailova

Knez Mihailova is the busiest street in Belgrade. Here you will find thousands of people walking, strolling, shopping, or just relaxing on one of the numerous terraces. You will also find bookstores, souvenir stores, brand-name clothing chains, newspaper kiosks.

Also, we recommend that you have a look at the ornate facades of the many 19th century buildings, a fusion of architectural styles, including neoclassical, neo-renaissance, and romantic. However, what you will probably enjoy the most about this avenue are the young musicians or aspiring musicians playing the violin, cello, flute, or other instruments.

Military Museum

The Belgrade Military Museum is located in the Kalemegdan Fortress and is an exciting place to visit. Housed in a building constructed in 1924, the museum is surrounded by the city walls and Belgrade’s largest and most beautiful park – Tasmajdan Park.

Recent exhibits depict the Balkan War. Even before you reach the museum itself, as you enter the Kalemegdan Fortress through the main access, you will be surrounded by tanks, cannons, missile launchers, torpedoes or mines from various eras. The Museum also has a specialized library with more than 15,000 titles in various fields.

St. Mark’s Church

Serbia has no shortage of religious buildings, and St. Mark’s Church in Belgrade is one of the most relevant. The Orthodox church, built between the two world wars, is one of the landmarks in Tasmajdan Park, near the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, and was the largest church in the country until the construction of the Temple or Church of St. Sava.

During the bombing of Belgrade in 1941, the old building was damaged. Due to the rapid growth of the city and the increased number of residents, this larger church was built in the Palilula neighborhood of Belgrade. Admission to St. Mark’s Church is free, and this is one of the places you must visit in Belgrade.
