Christmas market on the Republic Square

Christmas market on Belgrade’s central square

Belgrade is already preparing for the coming winter holiday season, this year a little earlier than before.

A great thing about spending your winter holidays in Belgrade is that they do not coincide completely with the rest of Europe, so you can enjoy them twice.

Actually, New Year is celebrated on the same date, but the Orthodox Christmas comes on January 7, And the Orthodox New Year on January 14.

Because of the calendar shift, you can also find shops working regular hours on December 24 and 25.

During this extended holiday season ( beginning of December until mid January), there are festive events for everybody throughout the city. “Open heart streets”, Santas’ race, concerts and ice skating, christmas markets, and a New Year’s fair with an indoor amusement park leave plenty of choice of both indoor and outdoor activities.
