9. Belgrade, Serbia "I really enjoyed walking and cycling around the Ada lake..."

Lastminute.com reviewer Jelena shares, "It is definitely worth visiting "The Bohemian Quarter" in town to taste local cuisine: mostly grilled meat and fish from the Danube and Sava rivers and fresh salads, a variety of soups and cooked dishes like beans with ribs, and meat stuffed cabbage leaves, a lovely local beverage called 'rakija' and enjoy the Serbian traditional live music. Kalemegdan fortress is a nice Sightseeing, as well as, Saint Sava Temple and Saint Marco's Church. In addition, Nikola Tesla Museum, Museum of Yugoslavia and Ethnographic Museum. Ada lake is nice for taking a walk, cycling (can be rented for 200 dinars per an hour) or having a swim summer time. Walks by the Danube or Sava rivers, I highly recommend too. De-stressing tips: Tasting local food, drinking rakija, Sightseeing, walking and cycling. Self experience: I really enjoyed walking and cycling around the Ada lake, where different sports activities can be seen to i.e . Cricket, golf, Rugby, etc. I liked: I liked Nikola Tesla Museum because of his inventions and a tour was well presented and organized."
