The place where Belgrade is today has been inhabited from ancient times. One of the cities quarters, Vinča, is the home of prehistoric culture of the same name.

One of the oldest cities in Europe and the only one built on the confluence of two rivers, Belgrade is the symbol of great nightlife. The capital of Serbia, Belgrade, is known as “the city that never sleeps”. Floating clubs on its rivers have become synonyms for great parties and neverending fun, and Skadarlija, the bohemian street, for a place where music and singing can be heard until dawn.
Still, Belgrade is most famous for its vibrant nightlife and the vast variety of options it offers for having fun, especially to young people. Here you can find your own place of joy no matter what kind of music you prefer, how much money you have or what kind of food you like to eat. There is something for everybody: from modern restaurants, “splavs” (floating river clubs), alternative music clubs and theatres to famous “kafanas” (traditional Serbian taverns) of Skadarlija.
In Belgrade, every night is Friday night. Everyone is ready to party at all the time, dance the night away, and go straight to work the next day. It’s really hard to resist the temptation when you know that on any given evening there are countless clubs out there full of young, gorgeous people having so much fun.

Housed in a former military barrack, this multi-purpose cultural centre (that’s what the “KC” stands for) is an EU pet project that stages everything from art shows to debate panels. Situated in the heart of Savamala, Belgrade’s hippest quarter, KC Grad is widely credited for sparking the area’s regeneration over the last half-decade or so. It turns into a club most weekends and its location makes it a reliable starting point for a night on the town. There’s usually something going on, and if there isn’t, you can do a quick swivel on your heels and try your luck elsewhere.
Found just round the corner from KC Grad, Mladost/Ludost is actually two venues fused into one: the former being a bar where you can loosen your inhibitions, while the latter is a club with a dancefloor that you can stumble off to once sufficiently inebriate. One of Belgrade’s hipper bars/clubs, it caters to a more fashionable crowd rather than hardcore clubbers, and the soundtrack typically consists of deep house. Exposed brickwork, raw concrete walls and steel bars that are embedded into the ceiling give it that refined post-industrial look that has become so synonymous with gentrification across the world and it wouldn’t look out of place in Shoreditch or Soho.
