About Nikola

My name is Nikola Markovic, I was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia. I have a degree in Economics with International marketing as my major. Whenever I have free time, I love walking, especially in nature or by the river. All my life I have been active in sports, mainly running, basketball and CrossFit. During summer, I am by the seaside, windsurfing and during winter I snowboard. Except for sports, books and music are my passion. Also, I am a huge food lover and I love to experiment with cooking. I can not choose only one type of cuisine because it would not be fair to all of the amazing food from around the world. Belgrade is located at the confluence of two rivers, Danube and Sava. Danube is the second largest river in Europe and Sava which flows through Slovenia, Croatia, along the northern border of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and through Serbia, discharging into the Danube in Belgrade. My favorite part of Belgrade is its verdure, countless amount of forest, parks, promenades... I would not recommend being in the city just for a few hours, but if that's the only way, then we will start visiting Kalemegdan Fortress. Belgrade Fortress is the core and the oldest section of the urban area of Belgrade. It was built in 279 BC. It was declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979 and is protected by the Republic of Serbia. After, we can walk threw Knez Mihailova Street, the main pedestrian and shopping zone in Belgrade, and is protected by the law as one of the oldest and most valuable landmarks of the city. Next, to it, you can find the Republic Square, the National Museum(most likely we will not have time to get a tour inside, because it is huge and you will need more than two hours to see all the important things) and the National Theater. Five minutes by walk from Knez Mihailova is an urban neighborhood and a vintage street called Skadarlija. Known as the main bohemian quarter of Belgrade, in Skadarlija you can find a lot of restaurants with traditional food and traditional live music to enjoy with your friends and family. I would recommend the Nikola Tesla Museum that is not big and you can have a full tour in 45 minutes. After visiting the center of the city, I would go a little bit further to a mountain called Avala. It is the only mountain in Belgrade. Except for marvelous nature and panoramic view of Belgrade, you can check out Avala Tower, landmark TV Tower that was destroyed during the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia, later rebuilt in 2010; In June 2017 the tourist complex was opened at the base of the tower. It includes, among other facilities, a restaurant, ethno-gallery, souvenir shop, sports fields, outdoor gym, etc. Also, there are several historical heritage monuments, like Monument to the Unknown Hero, which is the most famous one. In my humble opinion, Belgrade is most beautiful at nighttime. I love to take a long walking distance, especially on Ada Ciganlija a river island that has artificially been turned into a peninsula. It is so peaceful, relaxing and quiet that you can only hear your mind. And it also has a view of Ada's Bridge. One of the things that I love doing by myself or with friends is casually driving around and absorbing the soul of the city. The Church of Saint Sava is one of the things that I prefer to visit by night. It is a Serbian Orthodox church located on Vračar plateau in Belgrade, Serbia. It is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox church buildings and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains were burned in 1595 by Ottoman Grand Vizier Sinan Pasha. Over and above, we can not talk about Belgrade if we do not mention the nightlife! In Belgrade, every night is Friday night. Everyone is ready to party all the time, dance the night away, and go straight to work the next day. It’s really hard to resist the temptation when you know that on any given evening there are countless clubs out there full of young, gorgeous people having so much fun. Today, Belgrade may be many years behind other European capitals when it comes to economic, industrial, and scientific development, but it’s light years ahead when it comes to nightlife. The Belgrade clubbing industry is better organized and has more to offer than any other out there. Every night of the week, there are countless different clubs with different styles and with all kinds of music where you can go. It may be hard to believe, but all of the clubs which have the capacity of 300 to 500 people are basically full every night of the week. As I mentioned before, I was born and raised in Belgrade, so this is my city and that is why maybe I am not as objective as I should be :) but I can claim that Belgrade is one of the most downright cities in Europe! Verdure, parks, promenades, rivers and all of the am
