Get Inspired in Belgrade's 'Creative District', Savamala
The Savamala district was previously abandoned, but today its once-dilapidated warehouses are being transformed into forward-thinking cultural centers, art galleries, bars, and clubs. It’s a great example of neighborhood revitalization and adaptive reuse of buildings. We regretted that we were in Belgrade a few days too early, otherwise we would’ve been in town for the neighborhood’s annual four-day long Mikser Festival.
We popped into Savamala’s Mikser House cultural center for a few moments and could feel the creative energy in the air. People mingled with friends over coffee and lunch, or worked quietly on their laptops. From cleverly-designed furniture, clothing, jewelry, and gastronomical goodies, from all parts of the former Yugoslavia, there were shopping opportunities too. The facility even hosts music performances and creative workshops for children.
