BELGRADE DESIGN WEEK ONE OF THE MUST SEE FESTIVALS IN BELGRADE BY TRAVEL BOOK

In their recent article 9 FAIRLY GOOD REASONS FOR A TRIP TO BELGRADE, Travel Book has presented a lot of good reasons to visit Serbian capital city.

“I always had trouble in Serbia” ,the taxi driver says on the way to the airport. A hundred times he had gone through Belgrade on the way to Turkey, where he and his wife have their roots as well as a holiday home. “Belgrade”, he says, and lets out a long sigh, “Belgrade is an old, run-down town.”

Many people share this point of view. Le Corbusier, architect and esthete was, at the beginning of the last century, so shocked about the state of Belgrade, that he even named it the “ugliest city in the world, and the most beautiful place in the world”. At least the location – at the confluence of the Sava and Danube –gives hope. And the “Lonely Planet” chose Belgrade to be among the top ten must see cities in 2015. But what is it really in Belgrade?

Travel Book looked around and discovered many things: beautiful and ugly, cool and strange, surprising and expectable, but above all – a lot of good reasons for a trip to Belgrade. Energy, night life, people, prices, location, restaurants, feeling that everything is possible, the art to improvise and, as expected, festivals and events that make Belgrade so fantastic! Travel Book marked Belgrade Design Week a festival that you must visit when in Belgrade. Also, there are: Mikser festival in the summer, Belgrade Dance Festival in the spring ( this year under the title “Catch the light”) , Belgrade Fashion Week in March / April, Belgrade Music Festival (BEMUS) in early October and Belgrade Jazz Festival in late October.

It was great for xarchitekten to be invited to BDW as Austrian Architects We were expecting a great time by experiencing all this different thinking’s on design issues. At first there was the road movie from Vienna to Belgrade: 600 Kilometers of flat land, an immense impression of wideness - like riding on a green ocean. Arriving Belgrade we were hosted by the perfect Organization and accompanied by very nice people of BDW. The most valuable element of BDW´s Performing, Discussing, Lecturing in the Theater, Visiting the Clubs and Restaurants of Belgrade has been the linking excellent thinking and facing experts coming from different fields of design as well as different regions of Europe. xarchitekten are convinced about the great role of BDW as an Place for multidisciplinary Evolution, therefore BDW is facing a great future. Hopefully xarchitekten will be connected to BDW again.
