Belgrade New Year 2010
10 must see places to visit In Belgrade Serbia
New Year Resolutions: 10 places I will visit in 2010
It’s been years since I visited some places in my home town Belgrade and one of the most common excuses I usually use is that I don’t have enough time. Well this year I have already circled the dates in my calendar on which I will visit some of the most beautiful places in the city as well as some of new places recommended by friends. Here is the list of the places I will be visiting and hopefully writing about this year:
1. Kuca Cveca – or House Of Flowers – this is one of the most beautiful places in Belgrade and the place where the creator of ex Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito was buried. It is very popular place to visit especially for tourists coming from Croatia and Slovenia but still it is one of the places that symbolize good old times and one of the biggest political experiments done in history.
2. Avala TV tower – is one of those places that were popular in seventies and eighties and it was destroyed by the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999. The Belgrade tower will soon be finished and hopefully I will be able to enjoy the most spectacular view of Belgrade from the restaurant that is located on the top of the tower.
4. Hotel Jugoslavija in Belgrade – recently renovated well known hotel – with the best Japanese food and even better Casino – Grand Casino (one of the biggest in this part of the world). Impressive view, – the place is located just next to Danube, great service, great connection with the city center – what more can you ask! I don’t want to write here about Belgrade accommodation so if you want to know more on Belgrade hotels, Belgrade apartments, or if you need Belgrade guide please visit some of these pages.
5. Townhouse 27 – Newly opened boutique hotel in the centre of the city. The place seems to be very romantic and especially suitable for night of honeymoons and I have to check it for my friend who is interested in the topic:)
6. Delta city and Usce shopping mall, Belgrade – well I can easily find excuse to visit one of the two biggest shopping mall in Belgrade – these are some of the coolest places for shopping especially now with all the discounts which I always wish can last longer…
7. Exit festival in Novi Sad – the mama of all festivals in Balkans and one of the biggest festivals in Europe – I neglected the festival because it became too touristy but this year I will go over my prejudice and visit the event.
8. Cosy restaurant – the greatest Japanese restaurant in Belgrade – if you want to enjoy in Japanese food and feel the joy of the great service combined with the widest choice wines and fantastic program in authentic atmosphere please visit this restaurant. Please visit the following page if you want to know more about Belgrade clubs or Belgrade restaurants
9. Museum of Nikola Tesla – one of the places I visited at least a decade ago – named after famous Serbian scientist
10. Church of St. Petka – in Belgrade fortress Kalemegdan – one of the smallest and the most beautiful churches in the city – with the most beautiful mosaic icon I have seen in Balkans.
