Travel Tip: Make sure to verify that you only use a registered taxi company while in Belgrade! Some "independent" drivers have increased rates that can be 5 times higher than normal. Try Pink or Naxis. Remember, you can go quite far for about $12,000 dinars (approx: $10.00 EUR). Or get your hotel to call.

Food Tip: If you're in Belgrade and looking for street food, try ordering 'burek'' or 'pljeskavica'. Burek is a type of flaky dough pastry that is usually filled with either minced meat, cheese or various fruits and is served hot. If you're up for a real burger, try a pljeskavica! Similar to a regular burger but usually a blend of meats like pork, lamb and beef. The patty itself is always very big and traditionally topped with Serbian Ajvar and Kajmak.
