Apart from the sport facilities, a 7 kilometer-long beach of the Sava Lake has a closely supervised, fenced-off children's swimming area. Ada is one of favorit picnic spots of Belgraders.

Ortodox Temples  

Belgrade is one of the spiritual centres of the Balkans. Orthodoxy is the majority religion in the area. The intertwining of the orthodox Christian thought, Byzantine culture and Slavic spirit can be felt in every orthodox temple, among frescoes of rulers and saints depicting the power of faith and the centuries that lie behind us. Catholic temples, the mosque in the city centre and the Belgrade synagogue are places of spiritual life and peace.
One of most impresive Ortodox Temples, by all means, is the Temple of St. Sava. Construction of temple began in 1935, and was halted due to the outbreak of World War II and the bombing of Belgrade, followed by the time of Tito’s communist Yugoslavia and thus the temple had to wait for better times. Construction was only resumed in 1985. and is still underway.
