Not for nothing is Belgrade now regarded as one of Europe’s foremost party towns. There are a staggering number of places to drink and dance, with heavy concentrations along Strahinjića bana (known as “Silicon Valley”, and not for its technological innovations), Obiličev venac and Njegoševa, to name but three streets. In summer, it’s all aboard the splavovi – floating bars and clubs – to dance the night away. Most are concentrated on the bank of the Danube behind the Hotel Jugoslavija – a conspicuous block on the main road towards Zemun – and along the Sava around the Brankov Bridge; two of the most popular are Freestyler and Blaywatch. Most clubs don’t get going until at least 11pm and usually stay open until around 4am.
