Not sure if this is true, though.

Restaurants offer delicious meals of domestic cuisine, of which I would go for a veal soup almost every time. The traditional cuisine, just as in the rest of the Balkans, includes a lot of meat dishes, cheese, desserts.

The national drink is rakija, a fruit brandy of a sort, usually made of plums, grapes, pears. These different types of rakija are named after the fruit it is made of.

Not sure about that one though. To upgrade the ambiance, there are numerous traditionally dressed bands performing old and traditional urban music in almost every restaurant in the street, bringing nostalgia back to the table. Treat it with domestic wine.

Thanks to its very strategic position, the Romans built the Kalemegdan fortress sometimes in the first century. It has been destroyed and rebuilt many times, by Huns, Slavs and others, while the Serbians, the Turks, and the Austrians built upon the original walls.

Today, Kalemegdan park is always full of people, especially the youth sitting on the walls looking over to the Zemun. As the late autumn can award us with some of the most spectacular sunsets, I spent almost every evening in Belgrade at the Kalemegdan fortress trying to capture the colors and reflections of the sun on the two rivers meeting in Belgrade.

Wander through Zemun Zemun Although we had an organized boat trip starting from Zemun, I still think Zemun should not be missed.

It is a very beautiful and very green part of Belgrade on the right bank of the Danube which was a separate municipality till when it joined the Belgrade City Area. It still felt to me like a city within the city, so close, but still so far away from the fast-beating Belgrade center.

When mentioning Zemun, one might easily refer to Zemunski kej, a promenade on the Danube, and the rafts, which are a synonym for a good party in Belgrade. The offer ranges from coffee to lunch and dinner, but it is the concerts and live bands that attract all those seeking entertainment and exciting nightlife.

If around, take a walk along the Danube promenade and visit one of the restaurants offering traditional food and nice ambiance. You can have your morning coffee, breakfast or dinner at any of them.

For those who are curious, the Lido here — like most others — was named after the famous Lido in Venice. This uninhabited island is an oasis of wildlife and tranquility in the heart of the city.

Lido itself is a small sandy beach covering just a part of the island which is protected by law from urbanization. That is why you will hardly find a restaurant or bar here. Lido is a good option for those seeking peace and quiet. However, just across the pontoon bridge you will find rows of fish restaurants, a hallmark of Zemun, as well as places offering other dishes, so you need not stay hungry.
