Entertainment
“If your Belgrade friends ask you to meet them in the city centre, more precisely at “the Horse”, then what they mean by that is just that – look for the Horse. But there is a surprise for you there, because there is no stable or stall in the city centre whatsoever. It is just the conspicuous statue of Prince Mihailo Obrenovic riding on horseback. This square is officially called Republic Square and it represents the very heart of the city and also a historical spot where for example many protests and riots have happened among other things.”

Restaurant
“Walter is a chain restaurant that provides amazing Serbian BBQ. This is another place where locals go for food. It is not in any way considered expensive, fine dining, but locals love it for the nice warm atmosphere and great food. My recommendation is to try the ćevapi (Serbian sausage like food), or pljeskavica (burger) along with this get a šopska salad (salad with cheese) and some nice cold beer. They have nice deserts as well. Whatever you get you cannot go wrong at Walter's. ”
