As of recently, bowling just boomed and became very popular in Belgrade. From all the alleys that opened, “First Bowling” in Zemun is probably the best for its price and value. It’s situated in “Pinki” sports hall, which was considered a modern architectural gem in the late socialist era, when it was built. Now it’s shabby, but kinda quirky and interesting piece of “modern” socialist architecture among nice old 19th century buildings in Zemun Park.
“First Bowling” is quite new and shiny, with all you need for bowling – drinks, disco music and guides for beginners. All kinds of beer, ciders, coffee and other drinks come at regular Belgrade bar prices. For some reason, this is one of the rare places in Belgrade where you can often hear music mash-ups, creative ways of mixing Metallica and Lady Gaga, for e.g.
It’s a nice place to go and warm up before going further to town (or further to bed, perhaps). For all you bowlers, if you ever feel like bowling while in Belgrade – this is the place. Lately, the place has been crowded often, so you would probably like to call and book first.
