Fun at every step
December is the month when Belgrade is nothing but concerts and events, because December in Belgrade is all about fun.
Definitely the craziest month of the year is December. You may wonder why? The New Year is coming. We summarise our business results and personal successes. It is maybe an ending but it is also a fresh start. December is reserved for parties, concerts, various events and usually all for free.
Traditionally, the second half of December at the Belgrade Fair is reserved for the New Year's Fair. This year will mark the 59th Belgrade New Year Festival, which had a more archaic name in the past, just Fair. Every fair in the world is about good fun and shopping. Traditionally organised for younger visitors and children, this pre-New-Year event changed its basic concept by incorporating a lot of content for adults into its program as well. Colours, glitter, merry-go-rounds and ice skating rinks, a wide variety of goods, gifts, decorations, as well as concerts await us at the Fair.
The fair is held from December 14-30, 2019. Unlike this indoor-type festival, which will keep you from the cold and possible snow or wind, you will find similar events in many different locations around the city, but held outdoors.
Despite winter, in these places you will come across kind and cheerful faces, cheerful holiday music, perhaps mulled wine and a few Santas.
Countless little things, woollen and handmade hats, scarves and gloves, sweets and crisps cover the stalls or charming wooden houses. A good idea for a New Year's gift is guaranteed.
All month long, central venues in the city such as the plateau near the Temple, Terazije street, Nikola Pasic Square, the area around the old Mercator and other locations are decorated with these miniature fairs for shopping and entertainment.
An interesting program will take place at the "Christmas Square" of the Radisson Collection Hotel Old Mill Belgrade, which is organized for the fifth time this year. From December 1, 2019 to January 8, 2020, concerts, performances, courses and workshops will take place at this venue. The square will be decorated with a variety of cute cottages with its New Year offer of different flavours. Although the content is mostly for the young ones, we are sure that moms and dads will have a great time as well.
As for the New Year's Eve itself, the choice is, to put it mildly, quite varied. This is not at all a surprise, since New Year's Eve in Belgrade has acquired a sort of cult status, which can be confirmed by so many tourists who have enjoyed Belgrade's fun and hospitality all these years.
So all those who decide to celebrate the New Year 2020 in Belgrade can choose between different music styles and all sorts of entertainment.
All of you who decide to celebrate at the popular plateau in front of the National Assembly building, you can expect diverse music and entertainment event. The New Year programme starts a day earlier when the audience will be entertained by the most popular regional music stars, especially the ones loved by teenagers and younger generations. On Monday, December 30th, you can enjoy the performance of Vuk Mob, Angelina, Gazda Paja, Sara Jo, Mili, Senida, Cobi, famous Rasta, and MC Stojan, while the New Year Eve is reserved for equally attractive DJ Đuka, Maja Berović, legendary Lepa Brena and always popular Kiki i Piloti.
On the other hand, if you decide to celebrate the New Year in some of our popular restaurants, clubs and hotels, you’ll really have a lot to choose from! Marija Šerifović – Belexpo Centar, Ceca- Hotel Majdan, Edita - Hotel Hilton, Jelena Karleuša - Hyatt, Đani and Andreana Čekić- Stadion Hall, Rada Manojlovic - City Hall – enough just to show you how hot the atmosphere will be in all those hotels, clubs and restaurants where these local and regional stars will perform.
Due to the great interest we’re inviting you to book your accommodation on time in the pre-New-Year and New Year period. One thing is for sure – you’ll be more than satisfied with the accommodation and the perfect time spent in the Balkan fun capital.
