    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pub with strange inscription "Pantelija is not dead" is very known to every true Yugoslavian cinematography experts or fan. This pub is also cult here with almost two decade tradition.

    Suburban cafe/pub with unique theme - cult film "Maratonci trče počasni krug" (The Marathoners Family Running the Honor Lap) or simple title "The Marathon Family". Movie made in 1982 by director Slobodan Šiljan and screen-player Dušan Kovačević.
    The cafe is located in 200 years old traditional Bosnian house (similar to Topalovića family house from movie). They said that even famous screen-player Dušan Kovačević visit pub on two occasion and that he loved it.

    It sure feels like nostalgic place and bonus is and Tito (sculpture) itself and his books.

    Besides popular homemade coffee (1KM - about 0.50 euros), visitors can order and food:
    - French fries, sausages and cheese.

    Open hours:
    - everyday: 07:00-00:00,
    - Friday, Saturday: 07:00-01:00.

    Dress Code: No special dress code! But interesting that there is code of behavior (written on menu):
    - no violence towards furniture and
    - not to be too much passion with your partner.

    Irish Pub: Irish Pub

    The only irish pub in BL. I was there for St Patrick's Day. I was not very much impressed by the place, not only because they played the Pogues CD for 2h but also the Guinness was crap. Perhaps is because I lived in Dublin 3 years and I am not very much objective. Local people likes it though. They told me that Wednesdays (?) is the only place to go and is full.

    Castra Bar: Party on the river!

    Fantastic place practically centimeters from the river, a stone stairs going to the bank with two bars and great atmosphere! I saw in on a pretty slow night, but when it's full, I bet it's fantastic!

    Dress Code: I didn't notice anything special, but I guess something a bit fancier would be in order.
