HAVE FUN IN BELGRADE
On the river Sava, close to where it flows into the Danube, just 4 km from the city center, lies Ada Ciganlija, at one time an island, now a peninsula. Covered with thick trees and dotted with clearings and fields, Ada has become the largest, most beautiful and most popular picnic spot, bathing beach and place to relax in Belgrade. The Sava Lake is surrounded by more than 7 km of well-kept shingle beaches, whose water is warmer and cleaner than in the river. The lake is ideal for mass recreation.
