One day in Belgrade is not enough to get to know everything that the Serbian capital has to offer. Still, something is better than nothing. There are many ways to spend 24 hours in the new Berlin, an old European metropolis, authentic Belgrade.

Due to "lack" of time, use the day for the city center. First take a walk down Knez Mihailova Street. No matter how cliché is walking along the central pedestrian street, do not ignore the proposal. In short time, you will discover the charm of Belgraders and old architecture.

The last one reveals history in particular. On the one hand, you will walk through the city which was destroyed five times in one century. On the other hand, you will feel something special, something that only the true metropolis has. If you manage to resist galleries, museums, boutiques, bars and restaurants, the walk down Knez Mihailova Street will take about 30 minutes.

People in Belgrade are generally not the morning kind. You will find it hard to find people who are in the mood for a relaxed conversation at eight o'clock in the morning. At the same time, the city is amazing in the morning. Use a little peace and quiet in the best way - go to Kalemegdan. Just go to the end of Knez Mihailova Street, cross the street and there you are. The Belgrade Fortress will leave the best impression. Mind the time. You are not able to explore every monument. Leave the Roman Well, the Military Museum, the Zoo and numerous sights for another time. Make sure to walk all over Kalemegdan, to the Victor Monument and back to Knez Mihailova Street. There is so much more waiting for you.

They say that one city and its population are best met on the markets. If you are attracted to retro shopping, Dorcol has "Bajloni" market. Also "Zeleni venac" market is not far away. There is another myth that says that all the masks are gone in the tavern. In this script, the truth is in the only Bohemian district, Skadarlija. People have been having fun here for centuries. Food, drink, music. Each part is totally traditional. Time is flying in this part of the city, so make sure you use the rest of the time.

The Temple of Saint Sava in Vracar is not only an imposing religious building. It is one of the most famous symbols of the city. Every day, thousands of tourists come to see its beauty in person. On the plateau, people from around the world are walking around and taking photos. Even if you do not have much time to get to know Belgrade, you must see this temple.
