Most of the gyms in Belgrade are well-equipped, with good ventilation, lockers, changing rooms, and showers. Hence, if you want to stick to your workout routine, we will tell you about the best fitness centers and gyms in Belgrade.

A one-time ticket is 500 dinars (4,3 euros/5 USD). It is truly a bargain, considering that they have hundreds of different pieces of equipment in their objects.
