We feel that most of the people who visit Belgrade build a very positive opinion on our city. They like many different things, from architecture and monuments to people and food. However, the number of foreign visitors of Belgrade, although increasing significantly every year, is still not on a level which people who have a nice opinion of Belgrade would expect. Why is that so? We believe one of the main reasons could be – safety in Belgrade.
Writing these lines, we are referring to all of our non-Serbian readers, and we would really appreciate to be corrected if we are wrong, but – to us it looks like the most of the world is still of the opinion that here either the war is still ongoing or that it has just ended and there are suspicious people who could rob, kidnap or otherwise harm somebody who comes from abroad, especially from the west.
All we can say is – this is, simply, not true. Moreover, we guarantee you that Belgrade is one of the safest cities you will visit in your life.
Our war and turbulent history, at least in its violent manner, is the past of Belgrade. For more than a decade we are an active but a peaceful city, a proud city but also a city which remains open and welcomes everybody who comes in a good mood and with a wish to get to know it and enjoy in its magic. For everybody who respects Belgrade and is happy to take part in writing new pages of its history.
Of course, ugly situations do happen, but, trust us, those are really isolated incidents – back-pocketing, for instance, but you’re aware that this exists in any tourist place. You can feel completely safe in Belgrade during every part of day and night. Belgrade is a city which, literally, never sleeps and you can always find somebody in the streets who can help you. It is very common to see the city center full of people after midnight, or even in the early morning hours.
If you, even after reading this text, still have concerns about safety in Belgrade, we repeat – contact us via this web site or our Facebook page. We will try even harder to prove that you can come here and just enjoy your stay, without any worries of this type.
