A large city with a compact and manageable center, Belgrade is another that is struggling a bit to attract tourists after the wars of the 1990s. The largest Eastern Orthodox church in the world and a historic citadel are among the special things on offer, and prices for just about everything are quite cheap by European standards.
Hotels in Belgrade offer very good value, as do hostel beds. During the low season you can get some very good deals at even the posh places so it’s worth scanning the listings even if you are a budget traveler. The attractions are quite cheap as well so it’s easy to get by on very little once you have a bed sorted out.
Food and drink are typically very cheap in Belgrade compared to European standards, but only if you tend toward the local fare and avoid the chains and tourist places, which charge prices similar to what they do everywhere. The nightlife in Belgrade is attracting the weekend break crowd as well, so you won’t be alone as the evening goes on.
Note: The currency is the Serbian Dinar, which is worth about 100 per Euro. Prices used here are in Euros for convenience and translation purposes.
