Looking for an answer is a Belgrade cool place to live? Let us share some info with you and you decide does Belgrade work for you. Belgrade had been declared as party capital of the world many times in the past decade. So how did it happen that one small country at the South East Europe become the party capitol OF THE WORLD? Same question could be addressed to the capital of Lebanon, Beirut. How did these two small random countries become dominant in the Nightlife. Belgrade at Night wrote about this back in 2008. Long story short. Suppressing Emotions, Suppressing freedom of speech, Suppressing freedom of movement, long time isolated with unknown future. All of this was in the 90s, under the Nationalist Regime.
After Democracy took place in the 2000 Belgrade opened to the world. Explosion of emotions lead into fun and party. Big credit goes to the local entrepreneurs who established amazing clubs. One of the clubs back then the Pioneer of good time was the Summer Club Sound. People were going out, dance and party with a smile on their faces. After so much time in the isolation freedom and hope finally arrived. Parties back then were different then nowadays. People used to go out to truly enjoy to the fullest. They were sharing that positive vibe that had been very much contagious. All of this was hosted at amazing summer clubs that are build on the rafts. From those rafts you can see the panoramic view of the Belgrade old city. Journalists fled to Belgrade hungry for a new story to write about. They were shocked when they arrived. After a hard history in the 90s they have seen people smiling, dancing and parting every single day of a week. Hanging around in parks and just chilling all around the city centre. They found people well dressed with a good manner. Safe city with no issues whatsoever. Boom! Stories about Belgrade flooded the news all around the world. Belgrade become the very much visited destination for the world wide travellers. You can check the whole story by clicking here: The Amazing Belgrade Nightlife Story
