    Street workout

    Street workout in Kote��

    Street workout is new way of workout and lifestyle and that global movement engages many people in region. It is combination of gymnastic, acrobatic and some of free style of workout on open area.
    This sport can by engaged absolutely everyone, regardless of gender, age or physical condition. The sport is open to all. Is free, it has a remarkable attraction and it is very effective for human muscles, joints and tendons.

    Many people in Belgrade love sport and love to exercise. Some of them choose to spend some time in street workout areas across the City, instead of sitting in cafes. Those who prefer outdoor exercise can use the gym in the parks (closest to the center of the city are in Ada, in Hyde Park and the promenade near the Danube). Gyms are equipped with outdoor exercise equipment that are easy to use and for those who use it for the first time set a user's manual.
    I visit one workout area in Kotež suburb. It is small, with few elements and it is in park, near church and school.

    During the summer months, many fitness instructors hold free classes and training. They explain how to exercise properly and give advice on a healthy lifestyle for everyone.

    Equipment: Comfortable clothing suitable for exercises and appropriate sport shoes.

    Beogradska Arena

    Beogradska Arena
    2 more images

    The main purpose for my trip to Belgrade was to follow Denmark in the European Championship in men’s handball, and during my 16 days stay I ended up watching 20 handball matches…

    The main round (Denmark’s group) and the finals were played at the Beogradska Arena (seating capacity of 20,000 – 25,000), located in Novi Beograd. It was official opened in 2007, but was already completed in 2004 and used – on a temporary license – for the European Basketball Championship in 2005. Since, the Eurovision Song Contest, the Davis Cup, the World Basketball League, the Volleyball World League, and much, much more have been held at the arena.

    Wow, what a place! Easy access to and from Beogradska, good seats, many refreshments stalls, great sound system, and several big TV-screens… everything was top class! The best arena I have ever been to...

    The main purpose for my trip to Belgrade was to follow Denmark in the European Championship in men’s handball, and during my 16 days stay I ended up watching 20 handball matches…

    The preliminary round (Denmark’s group) was played in Pionir Arena (capacity of 8,150 seats), which is located in the Belgrade's municipality of Palilula. The arena was built in 1973 and during the years it has been home of many concerts and big sports events (mainly basketball). I’m glad only the preliminary round was played here! In my opinion was the arena old and very rundown, and access to and from the arena was really bad.

    Red Star Stadium

    Red Star Stadium
    3 more images

    It was winter and out of the football season when I went to Belgrade, but I still visited the Red Star Stadium (and the Partizan Stadium)... I had a guided tour at the Red Star Museum (the entrance is a little hard to find, but ask at the VIP bar), and it was a great experience... Especially if you are a football freak like me! The guide knew everything there was to know about Crvena Zvezda and football in general – and we had a long talk about Euro 92 when Yugoslavia was banned from the tournament, and Denmark took their place...

    The first stadium on the site was built in 1927, and once had a capacity of almost 100,000. But the current stadium is from 1963 and has been renovated many times during the years - and is now all-seated with a capacity of 55,538 spectators. It is the home ground for Red Star Belgrade (Crvena Zvezda), which is one of the most famous clubs in Serbia. More than 25 national championships, more than 20 national cups, and they won the European Cup against Olympique Marseille in the 1990/91 season. Many great players have played for Red Star Belgrade over the years, like Dragan Stojkovic, Robert Prosinecki, Dejan Savicevic, and Darko Pancev...

    PARTIZAN STADIUM

    by mtncorg Written Sep 13, 2011
    Welcome to Our House!
    3 more images

    Located a little north of Red Star Stadium – about halfway towards Tito’s former House of Flowers – is the archrival Partizan home grounds. Members of the Partizan teams were taken originally from the Yugoslav army – maybe the close association to both Tito and the former Yugoslav army has something to do with the team being second-best in the hearts of most fans? Rabid supporters are known as Grobari – Grave robbers. The stadium used to be the final stop during the annual baton rally where each year ceremonial batons were relayed by youth from all parts of Yugoslavia and presented here to President Tito on his May 25th birthday. At that time, the stadium was known as the Yugoslav People’s Army stadium. The stadium used to hold 55,000, but with the change to all seats, the stadium now holds 32,700. Partizan along with Red Star, Hajduk Split and Dinamo Zagreb used to make up the Big 4 of Yugoslav sports. Now there is a Big 2.

    Equipment: Fan store is at teh stadium and in one of the underground passages by the Terazije

    RED STAR STADIUM

    by mtncorg Written Sep 13, 2011
    Red Star Stadium - Serbia's largest
    1 more image

    The two big football teams in Beograd – though not the only teams – are Red Star and Partizan and their respective stadia are found in the upper middle class district of Dedinje. They are only a few hundred meters apart from each other which lends itself to their rivalry – the Eternal Derby. Red Star – Crvena Zvezeda – Stadium is the largest stadium in Serbia seating some 51,000. The stadium used to stand up to 110,000 but that was before standing room was changed to seating. The team and stadium replaced a pre-WWII popular team by the name of SK Jugoslavjia. Supporters of the Red star are known as Delije or Heroes – spelled out in the seats of the north end where they congregate. The stadium is also nicknamed the Marakana in honor of the famous Brazilian stadium in Rio.

    Equipment: The north side of the stadium is where the Heroes stand.

    The Red Star Belgrade Museum has quite an impressive collection. In 1991 Red Star won the European Champions Cup and also the Worldcup by beating Colo Colo from Chile.

    Besides the huge collection of cups they also have cups won on summertournaments in Spain. One of them had to be carried with 4 persons out of the airplane, so heavy it was.

  • PARTIZAN FC - The Pride of Belgrade

    by Doolence Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get stuck in!!!

    Boys in black and white and their home ground (Hram fudbala, formerly known as the JNA) are the definite landmark of my hometown.

    Eventhough, decline in quality of football is obvious in all of former Yugoslav countries, It is still a must go for all genuine football fans. Especially if Partizan are playing in Europe, or against their mangy neigbours from round the corner.

    Sing your heart out for the lads!!!!!!

    Equipment: Fetch your riot gear along in case of a Derby game (between PFC and the red scum is on) :)

    The staunchest and most passionate Partizan following are located at the South stand of the ground (Jug). It was a terrace until 1998, but people still stand/jump and make noise there. Loads of action guaranteed. Entrance for this side should be at range of 2-6 euro depending on the importance of the game.

    Troubleless, with better view and more expensive sitting areas of the ground are Istok (East) and Zapad (West). Later one being located just bellow the Director's box and reserved for retired people, trandy wan*ers et al. East side can be good crack at times and is the only partially covered part of the ground.

    Don't expect refreshments or posh facilities inside the ground. This is the oldest, non-redecorated football stadium in the Balkans (built in 1948).

    You can obtain club souvenirs in the center of the town (underground corridor bellow Palata Albanija) or in the shop (Crno-beli butik) bellow the North stand (Sever) usually used by the opposition following (if there's any).

    KAD JA PODJOH NA STADION, NA STADION JNA,
    JA PONESOH CRNO-BELU,
    CRNO-BELU ZASTAVU...

    This sports complex is on the Danube River and bears the dedication of Marshall Tito. There is a nicely maintained bike path that runs in front of it. Unfortunately not all parts of the complex are active -- the restaurant has been closed for some time.

    Official KKPartizan logo

    Watching the nest of worlds future champions in "Pionir" dome is experience you shouldnt miss if in Belgrade!

    Equipment: Scarf with PARTIZAN sign!!!

    The Partizan basketball club was founded as a section of the Sports Society of the former Yugoslav People’s Army (YPA). The "Partizan Sports Society" was set up on October 4. 1945. The basketball section of Partizan evolved from the army basketball team that won the title on the state championship tournament in 1945, beating the national selections of Yugoslav republics. Members of today’s BC Partizan play under that name since the first Yugoslav Championship 1946. In 1953 Sports Society ceased to be the army’s club and changed its name into "Yugoslav Sports Society Partizan" (YSS Partizan).

    A famous name for football fans, still a prominent side in Serbia but not so strong in European competitions these days.
    Anyway, their "Marakana" stadium was just a few minutes walk away , even though no game was on we needed to take a look.
    It's pretty imressive and the club shop was open, though the museum wasn't.

    Marakana is the name of the stadium where Crvena Zvezda (Red Star) plays games. Unfortunately, it is quite impossible to see it 100% full. Anyway, it worths seeing a match with "Delije", the fan group of "Zvezda".

    Delije is also known with their ultra-right wing political stand. When I was there they made a demo about Kosovo issue. (See photo 2)
