Belgrade street art
Look to the streets and they will tell you the pulse of the city. On the walls, on poles, on electricity boxes, are the stories of the people.
These stories are not told in words – these are tales of the visual. For in the art of Belgrade you can find the fears and hopes of reality.
I won’t insult the artists by trying to put into words what they have captured so well with their images. Except to say that you can see more than just history, or urban shackles, or daily pressures.
Look beyond the colours and the styles to see a world where living to 25 is an achievement, where a smile is more than a smile, where even the simplest stencil shows a complicated analysis of the post-war surrounds.
This is the street art of Belgrade – some of the most intriguing and thought-provoking in this part of Europe.
THE BEST ACCOMMODATION IN BELGRADE
You get great value for accommodation in Belgrade so you might want to consider staying somewhere a bit cool!
For a fun and social atmosphere, one of the best backpacker options is Hedonist Hostel.
If you would like something affordable with clean modern rooms, I suggest Omia Hotel.
There is some very funky design at the cool Mama Shelter Belgrade.
And when it comes to luxury, I just love the style at Square Nine Hotel Belgrade.
