Belgrade

Belgrade considered to be one of the oldest cities in Europe. When I walk the streets of Belgrade, I ask myself how different cultures have left a mark in this delightful city. Belgrade was founded by the Celts in the 3rd century BC before becoming the Roman settlement of Singidunum. The Slavic name "Beligrad" was first recorded in 878. Belgrade has been the capital of Serbia since 1405.The next 500 years, Belgrade has been under the Ottoman Empire and finally 1878 Belgrade became the capital of the Kingdom of Serbia. So if you are a world traveler, don't miss to see a different layer of art, the history left within the monuments of Belgrade.

When someone mentions Belgrade, the first thought is excellent nightlife. According to “Lonely Planet” in 2009 it was listed in the top 10 party cities in the world. But Belgrade during the day can show a lot, and what's fascinating, everything is so close that you can visit on foot.

1. Knez Mihajlova Street

When visitors first arrive in Belgrade, usually visit Knez Mihailova Street, the main promenade and one of the most beautiful in this part of Europe. The street links the Terazije square with Kalemegdan fortress. As the main shopping area in the city Knez Mihajlova offers well known international brands as well as domestic. While shopping you can enjoy the beautiful architecture of the old buildings from the 19th century, that are on both sides of the street. When you get tired of shopping and sightseeing you can relax in some of the numerous authentic cafes and restaurants. The Republic Square (Trg Republike) is the center of Belgrade, where you can see the two famous buildings - the National Museum and the National Theatre both of which are open to visitors. At the end of Knez Mihajlova, just across the street begins Kalemegdan.

In 2011, Novak Djokovic had what sportswriters called the greatest single season ever by a professional tennis player: He won ten titles, three Grand Slams, and forty-three consecutive matches. Remarkably, less than two years earlier, this champion could barely complete a tournament. How did a player once plagued by aches, breathing difficulties, and injuries on the court suddenly become the #1 ranked tennis player in the world? The answer is astonishing: He changed what he ate.

5. Novak Djokovic's Tenins Complex

Novak Djokovic is from Serbia and it is very logical to have a tennis center in Belgrade.The tennis center is surrounded by Kalemegdan on one side and confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, on the other. At the tennis center there are fourteen courts, Novak Cafe and Red Bull pizzeria. Even if you are not a serious gamer or a fan of tennis, will not go wrong if you tour this place.

7. Skadarlija

There is one place in Belgrade, my personal favorite. A place that will fascinate all your senses. Somehow reminds me most of the Montmartre. Bohemian quarter, Skadarlija. Once upon a time it was Gypsy settlement, the abandoned field in front the city walls. At the end of the 19th century there were built brick buildings in which artists, the caterers and others moved. In 1872 the street was named Skadarska and the name stuck to this day. Skadarska Street is 400m long and connects the city center, Republic Square and Dorcol, the old part of the city. When you enter the Bohemian quarter, you feel like you're back 200 years

It is known that the actors (probably due to nervousness) do not eat anything before the show. The opportunity to grab a bite, and drink, just after the show, when it gets obvious and already close to midnight. Therefore, in Skadarlija sprouted many restaurants, some of the oldest in Belgrade. There are morning, waited for, the dawn artists who entered the history of Serbian culture.

Over the years worldwide celebrities visited famous restaurants in Skadarlija. Photos of their visit are still on the wall of the Tri Sesira restaurant. Some of them are: Alfred Hitchcock, Jimi Hendrix, Juan Carlos I of Spain, Josip Broz Tito, George H.W. Bush, Anatoly Karpov, Sandro Pertini...

Nowadays, Skadarlija is most prominent Belgrade tourist attraction. There are well-known restaurants, hotel, art galleries, antique and souvenir shops. Very often in the street, you can see dancers in traditional Serbian costumes, groups playing Serbian brass or traditional music. All this attracts more than 20.000 people daily, young couples, families with children.

Most famous restaurants, remains in the same place from the past time are: Tri šešira ("Three Hats"), Dva Jelena ("Two Deer"), Zlatni bokal ("The Golden Chalice"). In a restaurant Tri Sesira be sure to try cevapcic (grilled meat), sopska salata (Serbian salad) and Jelen draft beer. It will cost you not more than 10 euros. You will remember this.


Something About Serbian Cooking

Fifty-three recipes make up this Eastern European cookbook. Inside, find all types of traditional Serbian fare, including potato salad, lentil soup, and an assortment of pita dishes, as well as sauces and a multitude of delectable desserts, such as crème puffs, baklava, and crepes. Most Serbian cooking traditions are intertwined with the cultures of its neighboring countries. So, don't be surprised if some of these dishes seem similar to some of your own family's traditional recipes. Also, be prepared for some differences. In Serbia, lunch is the biggest meal of the day, while dinner happens to be the lightest, typically focusing on merely cold cuts and bread. Throw in an afternoon snack of a baked pastry and coffee and consider yourself a convert! Many of the recipes are vegetarian, but feel free to add your choice of meat to any dish.

      dis-cover, my friend, please do not think that your English is wanting. I know people in my own country who could not write so well and with such careful planning as you have in this first hub of yours. Your writing is fascination and you use idioms well and with understanding.

      I have met one other writer on Hub Pages who shares your nationality, and he also proves that whether English is one's mother tongue, or not, it does no limit the standard that is produced.

      For your interest, he is Nemanja Boškov, and goes by the profile name of nemanjaboskov.

      I am please and gratified that you read my profile and details. I look forward to enjoying your hubs concerning food... a passion of mine. I am no cook, but love my food, and apart from two things, I enjoy eating everything I have ever tasted on the wonderful planet.

I am so happy to see photos of your city now - it is so much better! Thanks for the information on what to see there now.
