We had a one day stop in Belgrade on a river cruise. What a picturesque city. Old and new combined. Rode a bicycle along the Danube and had a blast. There are parts of Belgrade not on the tourist trail that are poignant and sad. Old relics of boats, old Soviet buildings, etc. Interesting to see a country in transition.

Plan to just sit and stare at this famous landmark. Lots of people do and I can understand why. It almost defines Belgrade but just looking up at it while you keep walking doesn't satisfy the requirement of seeing the Danube.

There are many places to take-in the historic and beautiful Danube but none is better than the Belgrade Fortress overseeing the delta.

It's amazing, how much two Belgrade Rivers have to offer! The Danube-Sava confluence creates a huge baisin, with nice sorroundings, islands, parks, and restaurants. It was delightful!

I never have seen one big river than that. In the night is more beautiful with the lights. And you can go to the bridge and you will have a beautiful views.

The tourism ministry was running a special so with a combined Open-Top Bus tour ticket we took a Boat Cruise from Jahting Klub Kej (landing in the park across from the Palace of Serbia in New Belgrade). It was quite a lovely trip and we saw all the sites along the river - a beautiful way to see Belgrade and... More

If you wonder where to go for some fresh air in Beograd, the answer is along the river! Plenty of walking and cycling paths with frequent benches makes this a great get-away from the traffic and an opportunity to get out and stretch your legs.
