On the river Sava, close to where it flows into the Danube, just 4 km from the city center, lays Ada Ciganlija, at one time an island, now a peninsula.
Covered with thick deciduous trees and dotted with clearings and fields, Ada has become the largest, most beautiful and most popular picnic spot, bathing beach and place to relax in Belgrade. The Sava Lake is surrounded by more than 7 km of well-kept shingle beaches, whose water is warmer and cleaner than in the river. The lake is ideal for mass recreation, swimming, rowing, kayaking, water polo, diving, wind-surfing and other sports, and a number of international and domestic championships have been held there. Ada Ciganlija has more than 50 open-air sports fields, including a golf course and cable-ski circuit. There are football pitches, tennis courts, handball, volleyball and basketball courts, as well as baseball, rugby and hockey pitches. There are also beach volleyball courts and inflatable water soccer pitches, and facilities for the extreme sports of bungee-jumping, wall-climbing and paintball. For anglers there is the Ada Safari Lake, covering 6 hectares, stocked with prize and rare fish of strictly controlled quality. At this lake one can find numerous cafes, clubs and restaurants creating a maritime atmosphere in the summer months.

This service is available from May to October from 9 am to 7 pm. Should you decide to get there by public transportation, use one of the following bus lines 23, 37, 51, 53, 55, 58 or 88.
