After successfully organizing the Nations Cup in 2003, the World University Championships in 2008, the Serbian Rowing Federation is proud to host the Samsung World Rowing Cup I in 2012.
Significant improvements of the venue
The Ada Ciganlija rowing and kayak venue has hosted many international regattas and World and European Championships since its construction in the 1960's. Over the years, significant improvements of the venue have been made, and it is now ready to host the World's best rowers.
Long rowing tradition in Belgrade
The Ada Ciganlija Rowing/Kayak regatta venue was constructed in 1967. An artificial lake was created by connecting the tips of the Ada Ciganlija river island by two dams creating the now existing Sava lake. The Serbian Rowing Federation offices and three Belgrade rowing clubs (RC Partizan, RC Crvena Zvezda, RC Graficar) are located at Ada Ciganlija. The rowing tradition in Belgrade is very long, as the first rowing club was founded in 1905. Rowers usually use the regatta venue for training while in Belgrade, just like the easy access to the river Sava and Danube.
