Kayaking and canoeing are one of the most triumphal sports in Serbia. In the late 1930s, the Kayaking Association of Yugoslavia was founded, which has been a participant in every world championship since 1932. So far, the kayakers from Serbia have won 51 medals at the biggest world and European competitions, while five world championships were held at Ada Ciganlija.

THE KAYAKING ASSOCIATION OF SERBIA is located on the New Belgrade side of the lake and, during the past 50 years, it has grown into a modern organization which has over 30 kayaking clubs as its members.
