Travelling has taught me how to find good location & accommodations. I booked at Revellers Hostel, only to learn that they had an age limit. I think they were talking to me? It’s the off-season, so she relents. It’s a 20 something hang out, in the end, we all had a good time. Sunset at the Fortress, then a Craft Beer Night at Samo Pivo (All Beer) Pub. They did give me a 4 room dorm, to myself, PERFECT. I was the only person on my floor, they wanted me to move upstairs. What? I begged to stay they asked that I turn the heat off-that’s easy for a private room especially.
I arrive Saturday, I notice the city bike infrastructure is missing. I sign up with Note-I BIKE BELGRADE with super guide BOGDON. It’s a sunny Sunday and hardly in cars around town, e-bikes all;owed us to rock (bike) Belgrade. Bogdon was raised in Belgrade and had been dong bike ours for 6 years. He was only 6 during the 2000 NATO bombings. he’s insights were priceless.
Another thing that’s really funny (or weird), they have fresh popcorn stands everywhere. I thought it was just a Novi Sad thing, nope.
I like biking, but walking has it’s own benefits. Zappa bar, graffiti, art are some of the things you miss with a bike.
I spent nearly the whole day at the Fortress of Belgrade. I think it’s home to all the left over war equipment from the multiple conflicts. Belgrade stands for “white city”, not that white, the fortress walls were built using white stones.
I’m not sure if I would return to Belgrade? Novi Sad definitely has return written on it. Giving each stop 5 days allows you to the freedom to explore without being rushed.
Thanks for reading.
