    Gypsy Quarter

    Skadarlija

    The bohemian soul of Belgrade - 1.1 km from Mama

    Travel back in time to the city’s Bohemian movement by walking down cobblestoned Skadarlija Street, paved with nineteenth century stones. First occupied by gypsies in the 1830s, the area became known as the ‘Gypsy Quarter’ until the late 1800s, despite the renovations that had occured during that time.

    From the 1850s onward, the streets and buildings were filled with hungry artists, actors, caterers, clerks and other artisans. Their stories still set the tone of the neighborhood today thanks to the street performers who sing about them, or the  buildings’ murals that depict the scenes of their lives. Today, the Skadarlija quarter is protected by law and myriad small shops and cafés line the street. It’s like Belgrade’s very own Montmartre.

    Charming beach escape

    Ada Ciganlija

    A break in the city – 7 km from Mama

    Belgrade-on-Sea sounds a bit like a movie title. Every summer, just a few bus stops from the city centre, the island of Ada Ciganlija offers charming beach escapes for city dwellers in need of a coastal pick-me-up.
    Ušće 10, Beograd - +381 11 7857 220

    Water skiing, pedalos and bungee jumping are all on the menu. The soundtrack is techno, pop and electro, so there’s something for everyone, and the same goes for food, with a good choice of bars and restaurants. Athletic bike riders hone their calf muscles on the (almost) 5-mile round-island bike path. Out of season, you can still stop off for a cup of tea or an ice cream in the few kiosks still open. In the main part of the island, sports facilities include tennis courts, soccer pitches, basketball and volleyball courts and even a golf course. The park also has free-to-use public barbecues.
