Belgrade is one of the best and most famous destinations if you are looking for “a good night out”. Great number of coffee places, bars, pubs and clubs guaranties the best time and for sure you will find something at your taste.
One of the symbols of Belgrade are “splavovi” – clubs on water. During the summer these are the most popular places to go out to. All kinds of music can be heard, coming from the banks of Sava and Danube, and everybody can find a place for himself or herself.
Your fun can start in the late afternoon hours in some of the coffee shops, continue in some of the pubs or cocktail bars, and end in the early morning hours on some of the clubs in the city or at the river.
Walking through the city centre you will come across lots of coffee shops where you can take a break. Here, next to all kinds of coffee, you can have juice, tea, beer, wine… Some coffee shops offer sandwiches, salads and cakes. Coffee shops are the cheapest and most popular form of entertainment. For 2-3 Euros you can sit in the coffee shop for a couple of hours and enjoy talking with friends or reading a newspaper and relaxing from work.
In the centre of the city there are a few places where a large number of coffee shops is located on a small place, it’s always busy there, and always a lot of people.
