In the summer months Belgraders flock to Ada Ciganlija(literally, “gypsy island”), a stretch of wooded park along the bank of the Sava just south of the centre. The island’s sandy beaches have earned it the local nickname “Belgrade’s seaside”, and city-dwellers enjoy its giant water slides, waterskiing and naturist area; there’s even bungee-jumping. A gleaming new addition to the Belgrade skyline is the Ada Bridge, which skirts the easternmost tip of the island; a seven-span superstructure over 950m long, and rising to a height of some 200m, it is the largest single pylon suspension bridge in the world – the views of it from the island are stunning.
