Someone is finally knocking on the door. It is coming to visit us all, but for a certain period of time. Hey, summer, where are you? No criticism because you are getting a whole day earlier. Thank you. The summer of 2024 begins exactly on 20th June at 22:50. That Thursday will have the longest day and shortest night. Unlike summer, Belgrade is always present and ready to surprise with a quality program at any time. Pretty soon and the sea is in sight, but there is much more to do before being lazy on the sand.

The season of elementary school and high school graduations, outdoor and indoor weddings, baptisms, returning home from distant countries - now emotions are at their peak. When you want a break from the celebrations, when you want some time just for yourself but with a good view, when you feel like walking, when you want to eat your favorite ice cream in even more favorite company, when you have a lot of ideas that need to settle and absolutely no plan in your head - Kalemegdan is calling! For every moment and every occasion, the most popular part of Belgrade is ready to "steal" attention for the first time and for the umpteenth time. Well-deserved because here you have everything you need to enjoy the outdoors in true city way.

It is hard to attend every event in a city this big. Numerous festivals, plays, musical manifestations, very popular bazaars, exhibitions, city sightseeing tours are in the center of attention.
