- Kayak the biggest rivers in Serbia
- Unusual mix of nature and urban ambiance
- Swim at Belgrade’s most popular summer resort
If you’re planning a visit to Serbia soon then Tinggly recommends this adventurous Belgrade gift experience as a way to see the capital from a unique perspective. Accompanied by a professional guide, you’ll kayak past bustling city boardwalks and architectural landmarks to the Great War island, an important strategic location in the defence of Belgrade throughout history, and now a prominent nature reserve.
Paddle gently along two of the country’s largest rivers, the Sava and the Danube, around the triangular-shaped Great War island which is a habitat for around 200 bird species. At the northern tip is Lido, one of Belgrade’s best-known beaches, where you’ll pause for a swim. Officially the island is uninhabited, but during the summer months it’s not unusual to see a few people living in shacks, tending their vegetable gardens, a nice reminder that we can all find our own slice of paradise if we look hard enough. Exercise, history and natural beauty, all rolled into one, in the heart of Belgrade, a first-rate addition to the Tinggly catalogue.
