What makes Belgrade special?
Toronto is a multicultural metropolis, boasting 6.4 million residents. You can find everything here, including tons of entertainment, museums, bars, islands, and a waterfront! This dynamic city is always changing, with tons of developments and new restaurants or bars openings weekly.
In the summertime, Toronto is a center of music and culture, filled with festivals every week showcasing cultures, food, music, and so much more! We have the largest street festival in North America (Caribana), as well as mega-music festivals such as VELD, Digital Dreams, Boots and Hearts, and WayHome. Check out BlogTO for the most up to date events. We like to think of summer as "Patio Season", as many of the locals love to just hang out with a meal or drink on a nice patio. You can take a swim at Woodbine Beach, hike in Rouge Park, High Park, or along the many Ravines, or take in a beautiful view at Scarborough Bluffs.
During the wintertime, Torontonians love enjoying the outdoors with some skiing at nearby Blue Mountain, or snowshoeing/tobogganing/sledding at one of the many parks. Brace yourself for the weather, as Toronto experience both hot and cold extremes throughout the year. When locals need to get somewhere downtown, they usually escape the cold in the PATH System, which stretches 30KM underground boasting 1,200 shops, making it the largest underground shopping complex in the world!
No matter what time of year you come to Toronto, you will have hundreds of things to do. If you like Museums, we have the ROM (Canada's largest museum), AGO (Art Gallery), BATA Shoe Museum, and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Change it up with a visit to Graffiti Alley, an alleyway decorated with unique graffiti, where it's legal and always changing! If you like shopping, our streets are filled with boutiques and shops, and the Eaton Center mall has 235 shops in the heart of the city.

Beautiful large fort with sunset views, a zoo, gates, open-air-military museum and more!
This main square is the heart of Belgrade which makes a great meeting point. Smack center of the city.
This large orthodox church is one of the largest church building in the wolrld. Located in the bustling Vracar area
The Bohemian Quarter with trendy 'kafanas' (local lively bar/restaurant). This cobblestone street is a must-see, and has a really lovely atmosphere in the evening. Also check out the fresh market nearby. My favourite restaraunt in this area is Tezga.
This is one of my favourite buildings in Belgrade, which represents the rise and fall of Yugoslavia. Once the tallest building in the greater region, this half-abandoned tower is filled with graffiti today.
The main pedestrian and shopping street in Belgrae. Here you can find shops, street musicians, and more.
Across the river from the historic old city, you'll find Novi Beograd or New Belgrade.
District with Lake Ontario views, concerts and festivals at Harbourfront Center, biking trails, and a ferry to the islands.
Nice historic church with a large park around.
The go-to summer spot for enjoying the beaches or going for a relaxing bike ride. The beaches get quite busy during the hotter days, but it's still worth a visit.
Trendy and hip area. Tree-lined streets with charming architecture. Quiet, but very central. Walking distance to the heart of the city, and the Kalemagdan Fort.
Up and coming area tucked away 30 minutes south of the Center. Here you can find trendy bars, restaraunts, and the St. Sava Church
Central neighbourhood closer to the waterfront. Close to the parties and nightlife centre.
