Belgrade is a city rich in history, culture and gastronomic experience

Belgrade is the capital of Serbia, located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. It is a city rich in history, culture and gastronomic experience. The oldest recorded restaurant was opened in Belgrade back in 1694 by German immigrant Johann Faber who named it "The Golden Eagle". Since then there have been many excellent restaurants here.

The city has been known for its restaurants since the 17th century

 The city was founded in 1838 and is considered to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, due to its location on the Danube River and reputation as "the City of Bridges." The city's restaurants offer everything from traditional Serbian meals to international cuisine.

Serbian cuisine is varied, but is traditionally meat-based

Serbian cuisine originated in the Balkans, with its foundations dating back to ancient times. It has been influenced by Turkish and Greek cuisine as well as Austrian and Hungarian cuisines.

Local specialties include burek and cevapi

Burek is a phyllo pastry stuffed with meat, cheese or vegetables. It's similar to the Greek spanakopita and Turkish börek.

Cevapi is a grilled sausage made from minced meat that can be served either on its own or in pita bread with chopped onions and kajmak (a soft white cheese). There are many different types of burek and cevapi--some are served as fast food while others are found at sit-down restaurants where they're considered delicacies. Both bureks and cevapcici are very popular in Serbia.
