Very nice blog post from Belgrade travelers. Some of the most interesting points:
There are endless amounts of cute cafes with abundant outdoor seating where curt, hurried waiters bring you an ashtray long before they bring you a napkin. And you know that long, slow meals are the order of things when the hostess warns you before you sit down that “the restaurant is closing in about two hours” and questions whether or not that will be enough time.
Without realizing it, I essentially ordered a plate full of meat, and it seems almost impossible to order a meal here which isn’t 90% meat, 9% onion and 1% other. Don’t get me wrong – the five different samples of pork, steak, chicken, lamb and sausage was delicious.
Kalemegdan has provied us overlooks of the scenic confluence of Danube and Sava Rivers and more uses of the world confluences than I’ve encountered in my life.

We were expecting a sort of sadness…or at least the feeling that they were still trying to get back on their feet. Not only are they standing on their own two legs, Belgrade is thriving. There are cafes, corner stores and markets everywhere. The streets are bustling with people and the nightlife here draws visitors from all over Europe. There is a pulse and vitality that we haven’t felt in other Eastern European cities.
