'Underrated' party city Belgrade has floating clubs, £1 pints and hotel rooms for as little as £9
| Last updated
If you’re still on the hunt for a cheap and cheerful summer break then there’s one underrated city that you may want to consider.
Serbia is located near Romania and Bulgaria - and during the summer months, you can expect temperatures of around 28°C and 29°C during July and August before things cool down slightly in September to an average of 24°C.
Although you may not be as familiar with it as other popular party destinations, Belgrade was once named Lonely Planet’s number one party city in the world.
Not bad, eh?
Clubs and bars are open every night of the week, and during the summer months, you can head out to the incredible ‘floating’ clubs situated on the riverbank to make the most of the good weather.
Rafts, known as splavovi, pack out the rivers during peak season, where they open up as bars, clubs and restaurants.
There’s also the River Open Air nightclub which, as the name suggests, allows partygoers to enjoy the decent weather while dancing the night away.
The city is also home to stunning architecture, including the Beogradska Tvrđava fortress and St Sava Temple.
You can also check out Skadarlija, where you can pop in to a kafana - a traditional Serbian tavern - to grab a drink or have a bite to eat at one of the many coffee shops.
And it’s not just good fun, it’s also very easy on your bank balance, having previously been named one of the cheapest cities in Europe.
According to beer cost checker site Pint Prices, you can get yourself a pint in Belgrade for as little as a pound, and if you’re feeling adventurous you can take a trip out to one of Serbia’s other cities where you’ll find pints for just 24p.
I'm just off to dig out my passport.
Food is also cheap in the Serbian capital, with an average price for a meal at around £7.30 while a three-course dinner for two is priced at around £29.
If you’re looking for cheap accommodation then you can find twin rooms from just £9 per person - or you can go even cheaper if you fancy kipping in a shared dorm at a hostel.
Flights from the UK won’t break the bank, with the Daily Star noting you can get a return for £34.
