Having emerged from the physical and mental devastation reaped by civil war, the future looks bright for the Balkan country of Serbia and its Lilliputian sibling Montenegro. Standing at the epicenter of Central European and Middle Eastern trade routes, and host to the region’s banking, machinery, metalworking, and telecommunications industries, Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, has a cut and thrust spirit that is hard not to appreciate.
The gentrification that has beautified most of Europe’s western capitals over the last decade now hold sway. Belgrade’s ancient old town glimmers with newly burnished landmarks and the youthful vibrancy of a city on the brink of self discovery. Museums are being restored, galleries opened, and classy boutique hotels are springing up along manicured avenues in anticipation of increased tourist interest. Belgraders celebrate their city’s waterside location at every opportunity. During the summer, flower draped restaurant patios are jammed with locals eager to partake of the city’s much improved gastronomic cuisine and cocktail culture. For all its woes, the city has always known how to party. Hedonism reigns supreme on boat-based clubs that hug the banks of the rivers Sava and Danube.
