Why visit: People, Recreation, Architecture, Relaxation, Nightlife, Danube, Zemun old town
Zemun quay is the most visited waterfront in Belgrade, connecting New Belgrade and Zemun Danube coasts. It is home to countless splavs (Belgrade’s world famous floating clubs and restaurants), two large marinas, the formerly glorious Yugoslavia Hotel, many smaller monuments and it’s right beside Zemun old town, Belgrade’s best preserved old town, dating back to the 18th century.
It is great for biking, skating, walking and is also a romantic place to go out with many traditional and luxurious restaurants and cafes, as well as a large number of night clubs on the water.
The avenue is about 3 km (2 miles) long and it stretches all the way to Ušće park, going around the Big War Island.
From the Zemun quay you can take a boat to Lido, one of the most popular beaches in the city, located on the Big War island, in front of the old town Zemun. Some summers the boat is not needed, as a pontoon bridge is set to connect the beach with the town.
