Serbia’s capital is a city that features a mix of architecture styles and it is best visited with the help of our Belgrade car hire services. Belgrade is the country’s largest city and it sits on the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. It is a pretty old city, dating back to sometime around the 4th century BC.
If you fly into the city you will be touching down at Belgrade Airport, also known as Nikola Tesla Airport. It is located about twelve kilometers from the city center and is connected to the city via bus routes, minibus routes and there are of course taxis but by far your best choice would be to employ our Belgrade car rental services and have your choice of car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
As opposed to most other capitals in Europe Belgrade offers quite a large variety of parking options in the city center. For instance there is a rather large 500 space parking garage under the old palace in the center but there are also parking spaces on the streets, in areas marked with green, yellow and red. The colors mean that you can park in that spot for 3, 2 or 1 hours after which you’ll have to park somewhere else or risk a fine.
The core of the city is not extremely large so it can be visited on food, you will however need some mode of transportation to see other sights. It should be noted that many of the city’s museums are closed on Monday so if you plan on visiting one or more on a certain Monday you’d do well to double check before you get there.
As far as the actual attractions that can be found in the center go, Kalemegdan and Belgrade Fortress might be the first on your list. Once a military fortification it is now a central park offering cafes, tennis and basketball courts, museums and an observatory.
Knez Mihailova Street leads straight into the upper mentioned fortress and is a pedestrian street which is packed day and night due to its shopping opportunities and many cafes.
Then there’s the city’s main meeting place, Republic Square which features a statue of Mihailo Obrenovic riding a horse, here u can find the National Theater and the National Museum.
The city also has quite a few religious buildings that might be worth a visit such as the Temple of Saint Sava, St. Mark’s Church and the Belgrade Cathedral.
The city’s current Town Hall is actually the Old Royal palace built in 1881, it used to be the residence of Serbian kings.
These are only a small number of attractions that Belgrade has to offer and you can visit these and many more with the help of our Belgrade car hire services.
