- Fun block
(2 options, one to be chosen by participants)
Fun block 1:
Nikola Tesla Museum + Escape room
Nikola Tesla Museum:
We know museums might not sound like the most interesting thing, but believe us that this one you have to visit:
Dive into the magical world of Nikola Tesla - see Tesla’s development as an inventor and as a person through mix of modern and authentic technologies from the time of Nikola Tesla during 45 minute interactive tour. Meet the outstanding heights he reached as an inventor and his very intensive approach to life. Specially trained guides will present to you the magnificent working models of Tesla’s machines, his various personal items, and his visions of the future.
In teams of 6 you will be locked in a themed room for 60 minutes and must try to work out how to escape before the time runs out. This involves exploring the room, looking for hints and puzzles, gathering various items and solving the obstacles one by one which eventually leads you to the exit.
It requires no special skills or knowledge. All you need is your perception, creativity and logic. And of course, teamwork is the key! Our games are conducted in English. In case you need some help during the game, the Game Master will always be there to give you some hints for the next step. Also, if for whatever reason you do need to exit before the time runs out, there is a panic button which opens the door for you instantly, so no worries!
Escape rooms available:
- Hangover (not a coincidence)
- Coma (RC hopes you want see another coma room during AA)
- Tito’s room
- Tesla’s Genius Mind
- Agent 00X
FunBlock 2: Rakia Tasting
What wine is for the French, beer for British, or vodka for Russians, Rakia is for Serbs. Authentic Serbian product, rakia, is a fruit brandy that may be even 55-60% strong! It is made of local fruits, first of all from plum, apple, raspberry, grape, apricot, pear… It has special taste when tried with cheese, smoked meet and similar specialties. You will visit 3 bars and try 3 shots of rakia with special Serbian delights. It is a perfect way to meet an authentic Serbian brand and feel the Bohemian city’s spirit accompanied by an interesting story of a local guide and barmen.
Alumni Dinner @ Skadarlija
There is a saying that if you haven’t visited Skadarlija you haven’t truly experienced Belgrade. Skadarlija is a vintage street in the capital of Serbia. It is located in the heart of Belgrade, the old, romantic and bohemian, known in history and legend, and it lives more than a century in many songs, interesting stories and anecdotes as well as in many literary and journalistic writings.
Different traditional dishes will be served with domestic drinks.
