Belgrade Alternative Guide

July 19th, 2010 by ivan

Belgrade Alternative Guide” represents a group of students from Belgrade who came together around the idea of showing their capital city to visitors in a manner different than that of tourist agencies.

This is a passionate group of students that state the following:

“Our purpose is for our guests to familiarize themselves with the way of life in our city. You will have the opportunity to get to know more about our young people, their friends and their friend’s friends, food, drinks, our habits, problems and our entertainment. The time you spend in Belgrade, you will spend living as a real Belgrader. Parties, get-togethers, debates, exhibits, and if it so happens that one of us is going to a house party while you’re visiting – you’re coming along!!! Of course, before all that you are welcome guests for dinner at grandma Mara’s, who’s cooking has no equal.”

This is indeed a great way to discover Belgrade, so if you’re visiting make sure you consider these students as your guides.
