I always liked this place just for the fact that it's a piece of wildreness in the middle of Belgrade. The beach is kind of crowded in the summer and that's not my favorite thing in the world, but usually I can find a quiet place for myself. If you love to fish this is a great place for you.

Very crowded, but good place to relax. Saw a water snake while we were there in water near children, locals didn't seem to be bothered by it, but a bit much for me.

This small uninhabited island is located exactly in the center of the river Sava, in fact it is visible but can not be visited, and the best place to see it is undoubtedly spreads from the river Sava in correspondence with the fortress. I have no idea why it has this odd name, but at first glance it seems to... More

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!
