PARTIZAN IS EVERYWHERE

The Partizan Stadium (JNA Stadium) has everything you could want from a typical, classic Eastern Bloc stadium. A concrete oval box, imposing floodlights, an often dark atmosphere and numerous semi-intimidating murals. The stadium is located on the south side of Belgrade, near that of rival Red Star (see below).

References to Partizan, like the enemy set up in the post-war months of 1945, can be found in many places around the city. The Partisan club also has a very popular basketball branch, although the football club is the largest. In the beautiful Kalemegdan Park on the banks of the Danube (which is definitely recommended) you will find a cool staircase and basketball courts with the club logo on the stones.

Bonus tip: In addition to the official club shop at the stadium, you will find a very nice Partizan shop in the centre of Belgrade. In the Partizan Spirit Shop, they sell many original and self-designed club souvenirs, including cool T-shirts that you can look great in.
