Belgrade is slowly becoming one of our favorite cities to visit when we’re in search of a laid back attitude and cool urban experiences. We’ve been already 3 times there and every time we go, we discover new places that convince us even more that this city has everything it needs in terms of urban lifestyle: cultural events of all kinds, cool places to go out for food, drinks and dancing, lots of outdoor places for the sunny days, interesting architecture, local and small designers stores, old industrial places reinvented into modern hangout areas and, a very big plus for this one, not that many tourists around and very decent prices for what it has to offer.
I’ve been to Novi Sad some 10 years ago as a volunteer for one of Europe’s biggest music festivals, Exit. I don’t remember many things about the city from back then, but I do recall that I liked the city and its atmosphere, so that’s why we decided to pay Novi Sad a new visit while in Belgrade.
We got to Belgrade on a winter Thursday night, after some 6 hours drive from Sibiu, with not too many expectation, but still with a good feeling that the trip wouldn’t disappoint us. We found a city full of life, culture and charm, vibrating from all its joints.
