BELGRADE BOAT SHOW ATTRACTION

 

The traditional event of Belgrade - BOAT SHOW, with the objective of promoting the rivers Sava and Danube and their confluence, making the recognizable image of Belgrade along with the Great War Island, was held for the fourteenth time (August 25, 2018) in front of the Sava Promenade, between the Branko's Bridge and Gazelle. At this year's BOAT SHOW not as attractive as in some earlier years, by which Belgrade has the symbolic farewell to the summer, the participants were the boats and ships from Belgrade marines.
As declared by Miodrag PopoviŠ, CEO of the Tourism Organization of Belgrade, " BOAT SHOW is one of the most exciting events, which attracts not only local visitors, but also international tourists. It is a unique event with family character, which affirms the recreation/sport activities, activates the nautical tourism of the city and contributes to Belgrade return to its rivers, from which it started". Speaking about the BOAT SHOW, he also points out Belgrade had in the first half of the year 2018 about 600,000 international guests and at least twice more nights, which makes this year the record one and the most successful one in tourism in the last five years. This is contributed also by the entry of the increasing number of cruisers with straight years of double-digit growth.
