Belgrade Boat Tours
Being situated on the confluence of two large European rivers, there are many places of interest to see when renting a boat in Belgrade, but let us suggest a thing or two, give you just a couple of proposals for different Belgrade boat tours so that you can get an idea of how to spend an hour or a day on board, why not?
Belgrade is situated on the confluence of two international European rivers, Danube and Sava, at the 1170th km of the Danube waterway. There are numerous places of historical, archeological and cultural significance in and around Belgrade that you can visit by boat, not to mention stunning nature, protected areas, beaches, islands, and alike.
If you are not that into history or art, you can always choose water sports or swimming, or you can just enjoy local food and drinks in one of the gastronomic paradises on the rivers, which we would be glad to recommend.
