A Brief about Beograd
Belgrade with its turbulent, war-torn past is like a phoenix rising from the ashes to become one of today’s hottest European capitals. Belgrade, home of two million people, is a pretty city sitting at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers.
You will want to walk along the riverbanks, perhaps stopping for a drink or meal at a riverboat that’s been converted to a restaurant before visiting the attractions in Belgrade. The Serbian capital is fast becoming known as a center for international festivals; hosting more than 100 a year, for sure there will be one going on whenever you are visiting.
Skadarlija street was once known as a home of bohemians, usually artists, journalists, writers, and musicians that were going to Skadarlija to enjoy the best drinks and tavern atmosphere,
where they could talk about the latest events and politics. Today Skadarlija is filled with young people that want to experience the spirit of Belgrade and enjoy Skadarlija’s legendary live old-town bands. Known for the beautiful promenade, famous traditional Belgrade taverns and restaurants, and as a place where the true history of Belgrade can be felt, Skadarlija is a Belgrade attraction like none other.
The Victor of Kalemegdan built to commemorate Serbia’s victory over the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empire during the Balkan and First World Wars, this 14-meter-high monument is the city’s most recognizable landmark and famous Belgrade attraction located at the famous Belgrade Fortress. This place is always crowded with tourists Belgrade natives, partly because of the breathtaking view of the two rivers of Belgrade, and the beauty of this landmark as part of the historic Belgrade Fortress. If you ever find yourself in Belgrade, it will be hard to miss such an extraordinary monument.
House of Flowers Josip Broz Tito led the Yugoslav Partisans in World War II, later going on to become president of Yugoslavia. A respected leader in the international stage, he died in 1980; he and his wife are burred at the House of Flowers, also known as Tito’s Mausoleum. For a while, flowers surrounded his tomb, giving rise to the name House of Flowers; the flowers are gone now, replaced by white rocks. It was built in 1975 as a winter garden for Tito, who chose to be buried here. The mausoleum today is part of the Museum of Yugoslav History.
