Five Days around BelgradeEvening All
Booked a short trip to Serbia in February for five days. I'd like to fit a few places in, however not sure how much there is to do in the winter or where is the best place to go with restricted time?
We fly in and out of Belgrade. We're a group of young guys, enjoy a decent night life, bit of wandering around cities and if possible some sports. My idea was to try Novi Sad, Vrsac and Belgrade, however i was advised Novi Sad gets a little quiet in winter.
If anyone have thoughts on the various cities would be appreciated?

4BG-NI is 220km and takes 3 hrs on the bus or you can take train.
I whole hardy recommend Nish, you can leave in the early afternoon, spend the night there and come back next day late, and next morning take your flight home.
Contact member Petrovic (Marko) he is from Nish and he knows tons about the city. Nar by you can visit Chele Kula as well.
or you can make it to Smederevo and its fortress on the Danube...

5Mihalova Street is the main walking street...that ends at the old Roman Fort...which at the confluence of the Sava and Danube Rivers (the reason Belgrade exists)...
Just across the bridge near Mihalova is a new Mall very modern, Cineplex, etc...lots of coffee shops and cafes.. .and high end shopping...crowded at night and on weekends...
The banks of the rivers have restaurants and bars...but they are closed in winter... There is the Skadarska restatrant district...which is only partly open in winter... There is an older Art Neuveau district across the river called Zemun ... which has some interesting buildings...
There is the cathedral and across from it the interesting restaurant called "?" ..And also the very large unfinished ( I think) Temple to St Sava...which you can't miss... You might catch a brass band on Mihalova Street occasionally... Lots of government buildings... And the government buildings that NATO bombed during the war... which are being intentionally left unrepaired as a symbol of..something...? Lots of bakeries...!

6I visited Novi Sad in December, and there were lots of people around. It's a university town and I loved it. Probably more so than Belgrade to be honest. Good nightlife there. I wouldn't have thought it would be very quiet in February, as there will be students studying like in most cities.
My favourite moment in Belgrade was the 'Eternal Derby'. If you get the chance to experience a Red Star or a Partizan game, it's definitely worth it.
