Great War Island is slightly over rated, sat on the Sava just before the confluence with the Danube, if you're heading over (by boat or kayak only!) for a picnic, fishing or bbq in summer its a lovely place to sit back and admire the opposite banks. Otherwise, there are no facilities and a view from the banks on either... More

The island is special nature reserve since it is a habitat of various kinds of birds and plants. This river island is made from an underwater sandbank that has emerged above the water surface during the 16th century. The small part of island is used as the tourism zone that includes Lido beach.

In the summer time this is very good destination if you want to do chill-out from the city and everything. This is the real oasis of nature in the middle of the city!

Protected piece of nature in front of the most popular places in Belgrade. There is a beach, sports facilities and fantastic nature. Protected species live on the island in the middle of the forest and on river banks.

This is amazing place located just opposite the Kalemegdan fortress, between the rivers sava and danube, and opposite New Belgrade and suburb of Zemun.This huge island is just magical without the presence of people, with lots of animals, birds.... It should stay untached. One of a kind in the whole Europe.

The Island is full of forest, rare birds, and is really beautiful place; but the problem is lot of people who come every weekend and leave a heap of trash! So you can step on broken glass, or get some skin disease if you lay on dirty sand. Such a pity that nobody take care about that "last oasis"
