Belgrade is a city you will either love or you will hate. Luckily, 99% of visitors love it!
Belgrade and Serbia have to deal with quite some prejudices. That’s why first time visitors are often double surprised to find out how friendly people are, how many hip shops and bars are here and what a great place it is to spend a few days.
We love helping you discover the city and fall in love with it, just the way we did.
Population: Between 1.7 and 2 million
Climate: Can get pretty hot in summer, around 30 to 35 degrees Celsius. Winters are pretty much moderate, but unpredictable, so it could get as cold as -15 Celsius with lots of snow sometimes.
Currency: Serbian Dinar (Rsd). 1 Euro is about 120 Rsd
Beer price: Between 1 Euro and 1,50 for half a liter of beer in a regular café.
Situation for cyclists: Less than 1% of people cycle on a daily basis in Belgrade, This has a lot to do with the lack of cycling infrastructure and the strong car culture. However, there are nice bicycle paths down the riverside and in the flat part of the city called New Belgrade.
Best thing: Its people
Worst thing: Its traffic
