Terrain descriptionOfficial mapmakers wrote a couple of words about the terrain:"...There are tens of knolls and hundreds of depressions and pits of various sizes as remains of the ancient Roman mining activities (lead, silver?). In addition, a small number of paths, mostly well runable beech and oak forest and also some open areas in the eastern part, altitude 190-320m. O-delicasy!".

Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Competition will held just one week before a Easter. If you take decision to participating at Beograd Open, our warm recommendation is to visit Ada Ciganlija lake. There are many sports and cultural activities all season long, like: cycling, walking, riding horses, free-climbing, playing golf and different things in adventure park on this beautiful river island... Kosutnjak is Beograd's "Green heart". In that park-forest you can enjoy in fresh air, jogging, walking as well as do orienteering trainings. Note: all Beograd's parks are mapped and you can use it for training. Beograd is city with amazing history! Build ed on two big river in this part of Europe, many Imperials were passing trough during the centuries - Romans, Islamic, Österreich-Ungarn Monarchy... Nowadays, beside architecture from past, Beograd is place where amazing modern mega-constructions which leave us breathless like - Bridge over Sava river or TV tower on Avala Hill...
