Promenades along the rivers 

Promenades are along Sava and Danube rivers, and are connected over bridges. The entire right bank of the Sava River from Ada to the confluence of the Sava and Danube continues along the Danube with a total length of over ten kilometers. A large number of bars and nightclubs are located on this route. At the left side of river Sava is Sava Quay, Novi Beograd. In contrast to the right bank of the Sava River (next to the old part of the city) where there is no interruption in pedestrian track in New Belgrade there are two separate quay - smaller, across from Ada, and far greater, which passes under the bridges on the Sava and is connected with the Danube quay in Zemun. The other half is perhaps the most beautiful part of Belgrade, with a handful of clubs and restaurants, and all along the road stretches bike path. People walk, ride bicycles, skates etc
