The big day is almost upon us. Of course, the ‘big day’ in question could be a whole host of things, from birthdays to Christmas to the celebration that closes out the year and ushers in the new one. It is that latter party that we’re going to take a look at here, by setting out some ground rules when it comes to a December 31 celebration in the Serbian capital.
Belgrade has a reputation for its nightlife that is only surpassed by the nation’s chaotic reputation as a whole. The freedom that comes with ending a calendar year often brings out the best (or worst) in people. Serbia is a magical country to visit at any time of the year, and New Year’s Eve may be the most entertaining. Here’s what to keep in mind if you’re in Belgrade on the last day of the year.
New Year’s Eve isn’t actually New Year’s Eve
Being a country in the Eastern Orthodox world, Serbia does some things a little differently to states in the west. The Serbian Orthodox Church actually organises itself around the Julian Calendar, which is 13 days behind the Gregorian version that we know and love. For the church, the new year is ushered in on the evening between January 13 and 14. Most of the population celebrates the Gregorian new year though, so the streets will still be full on December 31.
