Enjoy sports on Ada Ciganlija
Ada Ciganlija artificial lake is one of the favorite destinations of Belgrade’s residents throughout the year. With its beaches, untouched nature and fifty sports courts, including courts for golf, American football, field hockey, basketball, football, handball, volleyball and baseball, and over seventy restaurants and cafes, this former Belgrade island is a true jewel of the city.
In addition to a large number of courts for individual and collective sports, Ada Ciganlija also offers a large selection of adrenaline sports to all its visitors. All fans of bungee jumping have the opportunity to try jumping from one of the tallest cranes for bungee jumping in the world, whose top is at fifty-five meters. On the other hand, alpinism fans can try climbing on an artificial rock, with as many as fifteen different climbing directions, and take a trip to Adventure Park, which allows its visitors to test their skills and resourcefulness on suspension bridges, railings, and tree branches.
Ada Ciganlija is also presenting opportunities for visitors to try winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding. Skitrack has enabled all interested parties, regardless of whether they are beginners or experienced skiers, to ski all year round. The hydraulic platform adjusts the speed of movement to its users and it can move from the slowest (baby ski slope) all the way to a fast and steep, black ski slope.
Fans of extreme water sports will have the opportunity to use the Aqua ski lift, whose trail occupies fifty thousand square meters of water surface, but also the opportunity to dive with the professional help of experienced divers from the diving club “Svet ronjenja”.
