Everyone is asking if Belgrade could be the next Berlin! Behind its dark Eastern European facade, which has been devastated by NATO airstrikes not long ago, the Serbian capital hides a legendary nightlife and old industrial areas reinvented by the youth as the new cultural spaces, design and gastronomy centers. Settled at the junction of Sava and Danube rivers, the city lacks the polished world-class art institutions and museums of other European cities, but impresses the visitor with its high energy and its apparently endless number of bars and clubs. The city's main spots not to miss are Kalemegdan Fortress, which was a former Ottoman garrison, the 19th century Kosancicev Venac district with its cobblestone streets and beautiful houses, the old bohemian quarter of Skadarlija with its taverns, the former industrial neighborhood of Savamala with its design shops. During the summer, the urban dwellers flock to the raft clubs along the river, the beach resort of Ada Ciganlija, and the lush historical suburb of Zemun. A day trip to Novi Sad, the city that hosts the Exit music festival at Petrovaradin Fortress every summer, is also strongly recommended.
