17: On my first day in the city, walking along Belgrade’s main pedestrian street, Knez Mihailova Street, I saw people with ice cream boxes from this shop. I decided to try it and I loved it. From then on, whenever I was in the mood for ice cream I went there. You should give it a try!

18: From the outside, it looks just like a parking lot and it is, but it´s worth a visit! It´s full of urban art and cool bars – Cetinjska Street 15

19: Don´t leave Belgrade without putting your feet into the old bohemian quarter of the city – Skadarlija. Choose one of your evenings for dinner here. It´s very pleasant to hear traditional music and feel the charm and animation, so characteristic of this street

20: How cool is this parking lot? As I mentioned before it´s not just a parking lot, it´s becoming the new alternative hub in Belgrade. We love when degraded spaces are brought back to live. In the past, this space worked as a brewery. It´s located a few steps from the district of Skadarlija – Cetinjska Street 15

Belgrade may not appear on the top of your bucket list. It might not be a city that will make you fall in love in the first minute your feet touch its ground but give it time. It´s rare when you find love at first sight, right? With Belgrade, it´s the same. Did you know that this city was already disputed in 115 wars and was completely destroyed 44 times throughout its history? Its appearance, perhaps a bit shabby, contrasts with the extremely modern buildings that pop up around the city.

As soon as we arrived, the view of Kalemegdan Park surrendered us, but just as real life love, Belgrade wasn´t for us love at first sight, but its more alternative side, its small charms, easily captivated us. After a while, we started seeing ourselves even living here for a while. Discovering the charming and unusual cafes and meeting nice people.

Can you believe that our first night together in this city was spent at the house of a super nice and friendly Serbian boy that my boyfriend met on the plane flight? He was super sweet and friendly. Thank you, friend Lazar. We´ll never forget your kindness.

If we don´t return to Belgrade to live there for a while, we will certainly return to the Dev9t festival. Have you heard about it?

    Hello Lara! I am very happy that you met traditional Serbian hospitality, something that all Serbs are very proud of. I really hope you will come back to Belgrade and if you do, I recommend you not to miss visiting gorgeous Serbian countryside. Because Serbia is a small country you may see some awesome things leaving Belgrade for only 2 days! Check out some suggestions what you can explore: http://balkanway.com/useful-serbian-tips-and-facts/places_to_visit

      Dusan, thank you for your useful comment. We definitely want to return to Serbia to explore the Serbian countryside. One of the things I really regret during my time in Serbia is not having explored the countryside. I will definitely return with Valter to explore more of your beautiful country. We´re really grateful for your suggestion.
