Theme: Reflection & Rebirth

The belgrade Experience

*cue the cymbalom, accordian, and violins*

AUGUST 4 - 17

This isn’t your standard Hacker Paradise experience trip. Not by a long shot.

You can still expect that HP community magic that we all know and love, but for the FIRST TIME EVER, we are inviting our participants to play a role in shaping the future of Hacker Paradise.

That’s right, we want to hear your ideas for how HP should grow and evolve. Branded sungas? Trips at sea? Give us everything you’ve got!

A meetup this special deserves an equally unique setting, which is why we are packing our bags and heading to the epicenter of Serbian innovation and culture.

 

Why Belgrade?

Because Western Europe is soooo 2006

Situated on the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, Belgrade is the gateway between Asia and Europe. Its prime location means that it has a history more dramatic than a house full of drag queens, but all that chaos has left behind a city packed with an eclectic array of gorgeous architecture and a local populace that is proud, resilient, and knows how to party.

Belgrade’s nightlife is on par with the biggest cities in the world, and is one of the Balkan’s best-kept secrets. Party barges line the rivers seven nights a week and play every genre of music you can think of. Hip-hop, punk, liquidsynth trance-core, they have it all!

Serbia’s capital is also one of the most affordable cities in Europe, so you can treat yourself to a fourteen-day bender of grilled meats, pastries, and fruit brandy. We can’t wait to get curvy together.

The Experience

Get ready for an authentic taste of Europe's frontier

A warm balkan breeze blows across your face as you stand atop the ramparts of an ancient fortress. You stare out at two mighty rivers and picture the thousands of armies that fought over the very walls you walk on.

As far as European escapes go, Belgrade isn’t the first city that comes to mind, and that’s the point. Come enjoy this hidden gem before the secret is out.

We will venture deep into Belgrade’s rich history and see why it has been the prize of empires from antiquity to modern times.

Prepare yourself for sprawling parks, massive temples, and a national narrative that makes Game of Thrones sound like a nursery rhyme.

Trip Highlights

Experience the crown jewel of Serbia with these *included activities*

comfy ACCOMODATIONS

We got some sweet digs for this one. Since we’ll be going non-stop for 2 weeks, we made sure that the place you call “home” fits the bill. Get ready to put your feet up and get comfy.

Welcome dinner

Settle into the city and reunite with your Hacker Paradise fam over a traditional Serbian meal. Be prepared for copious amounts of meat, bread, and baklava.

shape the future of hacker paradise

As mentioned earlier, this trip we are letting you play a major role in deciding the future of HP. Have you always wanted us to take a ski trip? Add an educational component to trips? Sell our own brand of HP glitter? We want to hear from you!

HISTORY AND CULTURE TALK FROM A LOCAL FRIEND OF HACKER PARADISE

Get learned. Familiarize yourself with the political, religious, and economic history of Belgrade and Serbia. Learn about the idiosyncrasies of the Serbian people, and what they do to unwind.

wine tasting tour

Visit Novi Sad, the cultural capital of northern Serbia then take a quick jaunt down the Danube to sample local wines in Sremski Karlovci.

potluck with your hp fam

There’s no better way to spend a night in than devouring food with your friends. Take a night off from the craziness of running around Belgrade by cooking and eating with your HP friends.

Hopefully no one will try to start acapella karaoke this time…

Add on events and side trips

Unlike our normal Hacker Paradise program, where side trips and outings are organized by participants, every part of an experience trip is planned before you arrive. All. Of. It.

In addition to the awesome activities that come with the trip, we’ll have optional bonus experiences that you can join for an additional cost. These include: food tours, coffee tastings, fortress visits, museums, kayaking adventures, and day hikes.

Other Cool
Shit In Town

The fun doesn’t end there. We will have optional daily activities to make sure you maximize your two weeks.

  • Eat at off-the-beaten-path locals-only restaurants recommended by our local Hacker Paradise alumni
  • Jump ship to ship as you go club hopping on the river
  • Check out the world-renowned Trumpet festival
