Serbs celebrate the New Year according to the Julian calendar used by the Serbian Orthodox Church, known also as the Serbian, or Orthodox New Year.
Julian calendar New Year welcomed throughout Serbia although there were no organized open air celebrations in Belgrade, so the streets of the capital are mostly empty.
Rare passers-by in Knez Mihajlova Street told Tanjug that they do not intend to wait for the New Year to come, primarily for epidemiological reasons, but also, as they stated, because they are tired of celebrating.
The atmosphere in the restaurants in Skadarlija is still heating up, and according to the news of the Tanjug reporter, there is still enough space.
According to one of the caterers, in the years before the coronavirus pandemic, there was a crowd in Skadarlija that could not be passed through at this time, which is not the case tonight. It is mandatory to show COVID certificates at the entrance to the restaurants, and masks and disinfectants are ready on the tables.
The caterers say that the guests adhere to the anti-COVID measures.
However, what was not missing this year were fireworks.
The Serbian New Year's Eve was marked with fireworks at two locations in Belgrade, from the tallest building in the region, the Belgrade Tower, as well as the Temple of St. Sava.

Za ispis iz stana, tradicionalni vatromet za Srpsku u 23h od komšija iz bloka. Kul je ovo kraj, jes grobarski, ali stvarno su najbolje komsije u 62. 👏🏼 pic.twitter.com/rwZ2FemL32— Ana Stamenkovic (@Anchy016) January 13, 2022
