Belgrade is off-the-beaten-path. It’s a city that you should discover on your own and get the best out of it! Thus, in this pocket-size guide, we showcase several city spots that you can explore by yourself.
Kas is one of the finest craft beer that emerged in Belgrade in the last 10 years.

Belgrade is not a city, Belgrade is a concept of livingas famous Balkan writer and painter Momo Kapor once said.
GOSPODJA MIRKOV PASTRY SHOP
Another hidden spot in Zemun is Gospodja Mirkov, a tiny French-inspired pastry shop decorated with style where you can try delicious home-made cookies, cakes, tarts, and additionally, grab a cup of coffee. The name Mrs. Mirkov alludes to the family manufacture where skills for making pastries come from the mother’s side.
This is a super cool place for a quick stop while you are on a date, or just discovering Zemun with your friends or maybe with your kid that adores sweets.
Zemun classic. Cool raft enjoyed by locals, popular by its African-inspired ambient. The interior is made out of wood, and it’s decorated with African masks and details. This place is perfect for first-morning coffee, but also for an after-work drink with friends, featuring the sounds of jazz, soul, and blues.
Did I mention that this is a dog-friendly place?
BELA STENA BEACH
This swimming spot is located near Pančevo, only 10 kilometers downstream from Belgrade. At the very confluence of the river Tamiš there is a weekend resort with around 150 stilt houses, catering facilities, and a long sand-filled beach that resembles Zemunski Kej (Zemun Quay). The only way to get to one of the most popular natural beaches in the vicinity of Belgrade- Bela Stena (The White Rock) is by boat. Boats that transport people to this beach start from two sides: Belgrade (the suburb of Višnjica) and Banat.
