Belgrade is very famous for its vibrant and lively nightlife. No matter where you decide to hang out, whether in the city center or by the river on one of the many barges well known for throwing good parties, it is guaranteed you'll have a good time. If you are not into nightlife, there is still a lot to do and see. The old city is full of historical spots that will give you the chance to understand the history of the city -- you should see the fortress, which has the best view of new Belgrade.
There is something for everybody -- in fact, if you are traveling with children, take them to the Belgrade Zoo! There are plenty of museums, galleries, and shopping malls, so you should not have any problem choosing how to spend your days. If you are an art lover, you will enjoy walking around the streets and see the many pieces of tasteful graffiti. Street art is on almost every corner.
Belgrade has became a very popular destination in the last few years for backpackers -- for this reason, more and more Belgrade hostels are spreading all around the city. In fact there are very inexpensive ones and some are very close to the city center, which is always a plus and very convenient. Some Belgrade hostels used to be apartments and are now converted into hostels, so they aren't very big, but are still comfortable enough. If your accommodation is a bit further away, don't panic because the night public transport is available until 4 a.m. The city is very easy to reach thanks to the good rail and bus connections between the rest of Eastern Europe.

I was so surprised by Belgrade that I decided to stay for a full week! You need to get connected with locals in order to really experience the city. There are so many things to discover! And if you feel that restaurants are expensive, just let the locals take you to some real local restaurants -- great food, great prices!
I was there last year. I recommend you to visit this city -- it's so friendly and beautiful!
You can find really fun and interesting things to do. Top picks -- Kalamegdan Fortress at night with BYO beer; Ada lake on a bike; Riverside drinking, bars Joker, Freestyler, and the like; St. Sava Basilica; Cevapi from streetside vendors for 2 Euros -- well worth it! Enjoy! It's one of my favourite places in Europe.
Belgrade is the most beautiful city. Everything is cheap and so beautiful.
Serbia is maybe the worst place you can go in Europe. This is a totally f***ed up nation, and it is not true that it is cheap -- food costs more than in Greece!
I really liked my stay here in Belgrade -- the country has lots of interesting places and very beautiful ladies. It's nice being here.
Belgrade is a very beautiful country filled with lovely parks and friendly people. I have really enjoyed my stay and wish to come back next time.
It's a great city!
This is an interesting place. Though personally I found a strange attitude about the place -- I don't think there is much shame or guilt about Serbia's role in the recent conflicts. I guess part of me (having traveled around some of the other Balkans) was hoping or expecting to see it. Instead we still had the odd conversation which lurched oddly into nationalism, which was discouraging. Of course this was not true of all, just some. There is stuff to see and do though.
It's a nice city, but it is obvious that they need to do some things and make them better, especially if they want to have a lot of tourists.
Though Belgrade is a somewhat gritty place, it is certainly worth visiting -- there are interesting museums, churches, and of course, the Kalemegdan Citadel. One can still see vestiges of the Kosovo War -- buildings that were bombed and have not been repaired since, but the inhabitants have tentatively moved on to a new era of integration with the rest of the world. I was surprised how many people spoke English and were friendly to an American traveler -- I regret only spending a day there. It's the capital of a country still largely undiscovered by tourism at this point.
Every time I want to return to Belgrade! Belgrade is a nice city where I want to walk all the night through.
What a nice and green city! If you think Beograd is been destroyed from 1999's war, you're wrong! Friendly people, many many parks, millions of trees, and very very cheap! Don't forget to rent a bicycle and explore the places parallel to Duna. The view from Kalemegdan fortress is awesome!
