BELGRADE TOURS

6 BRIDGES OF SAVA RIVER


6 Bridges of Sava

Enjoy in 3 hours kayak ride and explore Belgrade's bridges on Sava in fun and interactive manner. Serbian writer and  Nobel Prize  winner Ivo Andric wrote about bridges:

"In everything that man pushes by his vital instinct, builds and raises, nothing is more beautiful or more precious than bridges. Bridges are more important than houses, more sacred because they are more useful than temples. They belong to everybody and they are the same for everybody, always built in the right place in which the major part of human necessity crosses, more durable than all other constructions and they do not serve for anything secret or bad."

In this tour, you can:

  • learn about Belgrade's history and it's architectual heritage...
  • learn basics of kayak skills
  • explore Capital from different and active perspective
  • enjoy in pleasure and leasure time on river(don't get on sun burns :-))

You will see:

  • 6 Bridges of Sava: Most na Adi ("Ada Bridge") Novi železnički most ("new railroad bridge") over Sava — a cable-stayed bridge built in 1979. Stari železnički most ("old railroad bridge") over Sava — a truss-bridge. Gazela Bridge — a single span motorway bridge over Sava, the main traffic artery into the city. Stari savski most ("old Sava bridge") and Brankov most ("Branko's bridge")
  • Kalemegdan fortress and old city core
  • Night clubs in daily light

 

"In the end, everything through which this life of ours is expressed—thoughts, efforts, glances, smiles, words, sighs—is all reaching out to another shore, as towards it's aim, and only there will it be granted its true meaning.

Everywhere there is something to overcome or to bridge: disorder, death, meaninglessness. Everything is a transition, a bridge whose ends are lost in infinity, beside which all the bridges of this earth are only children’s toys, pale symbols. And all our hope lies on the other side."

Ivo Andric
