“The BeoQuest team made our teambuilding special, they customized/modified the quest according to the participants’ needs, meeting all our requests and special wishes. The quest was as interesting to those who came to/visited Belgrade for the first time, as it was to those who were born here. We all enjoyed discovering the sights of Belgrade and hidden messages around us. We were discovering Belgrade in a completely different way! By solving tasks, we were able to have a lot of fun, but also to learn things about each other, to realize how different our views on the same things are and to get to know the members of our team throughout the game. Simply put – BeoQuest was a great choice!”

“We chose Beoquest because it seemed (to us) like a creative team building activity. It hit the bull’s eye! Everyone had a great time – from younger and older participants, Belgrade-born people, to those who are just passing through. The tasks were challenging, but solvable – made so that literally everyone on the team wanted and had to get involved in order to reach the goal. We will definitely repeat this experience with a new group. ”

If you prefer sand, Lido beach is perfect option for you. Located at the Great War Island, due to the large number of different bird species, the island is protected as a nature reserve. It is quite intimate atmosphere, you will never find huge crowd there.

Tarzan beach is hidden gem of Belgrade, even not many locals know about this place. It is located in Progar, municipality of Surčin.

It’s entirely different way of exploring Belgrade for students/young people compared to elderly travelers.

Maybe activity in the city that is more memorable than a sight-seeing with tour guide headphones? Belgrade quest is the answer! Participate in this fun game with your student friends, race against other teams as you solve riddles, clues and solve the challenges.

Some of the benefits of Belgrade quest for students:

  • Enables exploration and discovery –While the main goal is riddle/challenge solving, half the fun is embracing the journey as well. Being outdoors, meeting locals, become familiar with Belgrade, allowing you to find new and interesting spots on your journey. It’s also a great activity to help with your sense of direction.
  • Builds the team –The quest is a great social ice breaker. Gathering students to commit to a common goal in a relaxed atmosphere is a way to promote teamwork. Since there is time limitation for Belgrade quest, this especially puts the questers into crunch time and will encourage responsibility and leadership in the team. This helps bring the team together as each member of a team can contribute uniquely to the quest.
  • Stimulates the mind – Belgrade quest challenges players on an individual and a team level. Student participants use their general knowledge, along with puzzle solving and map reading skills to solve a series of clues that have only one correct solution. The quest teaches participants to follow directions, build listening skills, and seek and build a consensus for a plan of action. The responsibility comes with plotting a strategy for Belgrade quest.
  • Promotes social interaction – The game will starch your comfort zone. Whether it’s being in an unfamiliar area or being with an unfamiliar team, you are inspired to interact with your student team members to ensure the team’s objective is met. Since the competition of the quest can be exhilarating, you’re even more prone to interact with your team members to beat the other teams.

At the heart of Belgrade quest for students are tasks and challenges that encourage participants to stretch their comfort zones, bond with their fellow team-mates, explore and learn about Belgrade, interact with locals, and most importantly, a lot of laughter while they complete their treasure hunt lists.

Belgrade is ready to greet you with classical activities to some more adventurous every bachelor and bachelorette weekend requires.

Last year, while traveling back to Belgrade, I’ve got to see quite a strange sight at the airport customs queue. Several places behind me was standing a bunch of girls, all dressed in the same black t-shirts which had “Hannah’s crew” written all over them in golden glitter. But ok, that is not the strangest thing you’ve ever seen, right? But the fact that all girls had big curlers on their heads must be something you don’t see every day, right? I was really fascinated by these ladies and hoped like crazy that they are on the same flight as me. And they were! The minute I saw them getting ready to board my plane I had to ask them what is this all about. And they explained – we are going on a bachelorette weekend to Belgrade.

They’ve had everything planned and preparations started already during the flight. The energy they’ve brought with themselves was super positive, entire plane joined their frenzy. So all I could do is wish them all the luck in fulfilling everything they’ve had on the list. And believe me, their list was a serious thing: cocktails on river bars, sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and night clubs. The only thing that could get in the way was their stamina because Belgrade could definitely offer everything planned. And after this amazing bride and her team I started noticing more and more groups of bachelorettes and bachelors visiting our town all throughout the year, looking to make this final adventure of “life without ball and chain” unforgettable.
