What to do in Belgrade during the summer is a question with many answers. Human Resources are telling you that you still have unused (paid) vacation days. Tourists flock to every corner of the Serbian capital. The summer wardrobe is very much here. Everything is as it should be, but the thing missing is a plan for entertainment around the city. Well, here it is!

It is summer in Belgrade? Obviously you look to BELEF. This year, the 30th anniversary of this masterful concept is being celebrated and no matter who you are you should come. Under the slogan "I want magic", the audience will experience a never-before-seen program. Day in day out until July 9th, the best that Belgrade and its cultural and artistic elite, together with selected guests know and love will be just a step away from you. Kolarac Endowment, the National Theatre, Vuk Theatre, Bitef Theatre are just some of the places at which you will experience a spectacle. Magnificent, solemn, with a strong seal of quality. It's BELEF 2022. It is not to be missed.

The first days of July, specifically the 2nd and 3rd, are reserved for an outdoor jazz festival. Botanical Garden "Jevremovac" is the location where the second ever Jazz in the Garden is held. 14 concerts of excellent musicians from around the country and the world are expected, and the special guest is the celebrated band Jazzanova from Berlin. Jazz in the Garden will be held on three stages simultaneously starting at 4 in the afternoon. The botanical garden is not to be slept on.

The new thing in town is called "Starogradsko leto", and the municipality of Stari Grad is the creator of this rich program for all ages. Performances, sales exhibitions, concerts, creative workshops for children and adults and open cinema are just a small part of the great content that will be held in more than 10 attractive locations. The event lasts until September 1st. Find your favorite part of the program and create the best summer memories in the city.

Free programs, sports and recreation, exhibitions, concerts, voluntary blood donation. Everything that the metropolis has to offer can only be found here. Let yourself be swept away by the summer vibes.

If you're more into art and culture but indoors, start reading right away because the theatre calendar knows which shows you have to see in Belgrade.
