Ada Ciganlija Belgrade- Serbian women

It’s Hard To Think Of Just One Favorite Place In Belgrade

British photographer Ian Furniss wrote: “I have so many favourite places in Belgrade it’s hard sometimes to know whether to use the word ‘favourite’ or not. In the case of Ada though, I think I can safely put that concern to one side and say, it is definitely one of my favourite places! I have so many wonderful memories of days and nights spent there and there is so much beauty at every turn, it just wouldn’t be possible to think of it in any other way.” I agree with Ian Furniss. There is no one place that I would single out as being my one and only favorite in Belgrade. That said, Ada Ciganlija is one of my favorite places. Oh, and one more thing.

Belgrade For Beer And Beach Lovers?

This summer, Aleksandra, a Canadian of Serbian origin living in Toronto, went to Belgrade. She put up a blog post explaining why she loves Ada Ciganlija, Belgrade’s most popular city beach:

Also, this summer I went to Belgrade and, among other things, had a couple of beautiful beach outings, with my son, to Ada Ciganlija. What I like about going to the beach in Belgrade is that in Belgrade you can have a beer on the beach, unlike here. It really is a bonus, sitting in the shade, on the beach chair, with your feet in the water, drinking cold beer and reading, for example, some trashy Belgrade newspaper, such as “Kurir”.

I agree with Aleksandra. Belgrade’s beach offers virtually anything one might desire for a day under the sun.

Yet another American Likes Belgrade’s Beach, Ada Ciganlija

We recently wrote about Tony Ehrbar’s post where, in the course of traveling around the world in 110 days, he had a great time at Ada Ciganlija, Belgrade’s most popular city beach. Ada Ciganlija offers a wide range of refreshing activities, so, it’s not really surprising to see that yet another American has liked Belgrade’s Beach. This time Justin Klein, a 28-year-old contract programmer and world traveler based in Los Angeles, California, took a short solo trip to Ada Ciganlija, and wrote an excellent post about it. Here’s a short excerpt, but it’s worth reading the whole thing:

My God, I could not have designed a more perfect summertime hangout.

With a massive artificial lake at its center, the Ada recreational area offers virtually anything one might desire for a Sunday under the sun. Its pebbled waterfront is encircled by both a walking promenade and a bike path, both of which are lined by countless bars, cafes, restaurants, food stalls, basketball and tennis and volleyball courts, children’s playgrounds, green grassy areas, BBQ pits, indoor and outdoor sports complexes, inflatable moon bounces, rock climbing walls, and even a tower built specifically for bungee jumping. Of course if watersports are your thing, you can always go for a dip in any of the swimming areas, or rent a paddle boat, or even strap on some water skis – they’ve got a long overhead wire that zips you back and forth along the water. The clubs and bars along the promenade play every type of music, from the latest in EuroHouse to traditional Serbian. Dozens of cyclists and rollerbladers cruise around modeling their suntanned bodies as thousands more pedestrians stroll leisurely by. There’s even nude beach area, if that’s your thing – though it’s no more isolated from the walking promenade than any of the other swimming areas. Now that takes some confidence!
