I always enjoy visiting grocery stores in other countries, it's an inexpensive place to pick up something to drink or dessert if you don't order that with dinner. We found this Mercator in the basement of a building along ____________, it was open until 10pm every night
Usce Shopping Center is a rather new shopping center (opened in April 2009) with around 150 shops, restaurants, and cafes. Clothes stores, shoes stores, electronic stores… all good quality shops with international and local brands; Adidas, Apple, Benetton, Converse, Ecco, Gant, Lacoste, Levi’s, Nike, Reebok, Samsung, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, and much, much more…
Usce also has a cinema, a bowling alley, and a casino (electronic roulette machines and slot machines).
A mall like a mall – shops; restaurants, cafes, etc. But for us was something more – we hided from the hot weather as we decided to walk from the old town through Brankov bridge. I’m glad e finally took the bus to Zemun as it was 30 degrees outside
Knez Mihailova Street (Prince Mihailo Street) is the main pedestrian and shopping street in Belgrade. The street is about 1 kilometre long and is filled with shops and cafés - reminds me a little of the shopping street, “Strøget”, in my home town Copenhagen...
On the street, you can find shops such as Mango, Springfield, Nike, Replay, Azzaro, Cortefiel, Champion, Aldo, Adidas, and local clothing brands.
Many of the buildings at the street are from late 1870s and are quite impressive. Knez Mihailova was declared Spatial Cultural-Historical Units of Great Importance in 1979, and is now protected by the Republic of Serbia.
The main shopping street seems to be Kneza Mihaila, starting close to Trg Republike and stretching all the way to the edge of Kalemegdan.
It’s pedestrianised all the way, and has lots of coffee shops with outdoor terraces for the good weather.
At the Square end it is mostly fashion shops. You’ll find more variety as you move north - many bookshops, oddly enough.
Interesting aside regarding the photo... You'll see a poster advertising an Amy Winehouse concert. She was booed off stage for being too drunk (or whatever) to perform.
What to buy: Clothes, shoes, books... whatever.
What to pay: Depends what you buy. Less than in the EU, that's for sure.
As you enter the Kalemegdan fortress from Kneza Mihaila, you’ll find a pathway lined with souvenir stalls and kiosks selling ice cream/drinks. It looks like an ideal place to pick up some local stuff, if shopping is your thing.
I’m not a souvenir hunter, so I can’t help with prices. However, I did buy a small bottle of water for 50 dinar. A small Serb girl was buying exactly the same thing right after me, and when the vendor asked her for 50 dinar she looked at me and (I’m guessing) gave him a torrent of abuse for trying to charge her the tourist price!
So, be warned. Of course most stuff is so cheap it hardly matters.
What to buy: Souvenirs, ice cream, water...
What to pay: Varies! Depends what you buy...
Typical souvenirs from Belgrade
What about some rakija šljivovica which is a local brandy (plum!)
Or an item of traditional folk clothing - a Sajkaca (traditional mans hat) or opanci (cool funny looking shoe things with curled up toes, i got a pair of them) or the traditional womens aprons are cool, as are the woolen socks - you can get all of these at Savez KUD Beograd on Dobračina 2.
also good are the local baked sweets, cookies etc which you can buy in a box to take home, try Candy shop Bosiljčić on Gavrila Principa 14
If you want to get a truly Balkan feel, why not visit a local farmer's market. It may get hot and stressful but I guarantee you will find the best fresh fruit and vegetable here and you can really get in touch with the locals!
This is a business card from the Sky Mobile Phone store.
The people are very friendly and knowledgable.
What to buy: I bought my piece of crap phone here in 2003.
It was the cheapest one that they had. But, hey, it works!!! That is the most important thing.
What to pay: 50 euros for the hunk of junk I have. I am sure they don't even make this model now.

What to buy: But in my opinion "Belgrade Brandy - Slivovitza" is an exclusive and the best gift.
We called it rakija – sljivovica.
What to pay: 5-10 EURO
The shopping on Knez Milhailova is varied and mostly expensive. We were fortunate to hit a sale at this Slovenian children's store.
What to buy: Jutranjka has really attractive nicely made children's clothes.
What to pay: Too much, unless they are on sale!
Los Angeles "Times", "Pravda" from Moscow and many other newspapers wrote about these unique ties. Hand made silk ties, designed by Neven Vrgoc, owner of the shop, are sold in Neven's shops in Europe. Even, in Beverly Hills, California.
Neven is noted in the "Guinness Book of Records" for the fastest knotted tie, 0.75 of a second in 1985!!!!
This is a shopping and exhibition area with a variety of offers. A shop where Belgrade souvenirs, made of different materials, practical, designed by well-known designers and artists, are represented occupies the principal place. The selection of goods in this gallery store is often inspired by important happenings and cultural events in Belgrade, and in such a way culture is permanently popularised.
Opening hours: from 9:00 to 20:00, every day.
What to buy: "Beogradski izlog" is, also, an important place where, apart from exhibiting and selling culture books, art books, fiction, magazines, cartoons, monographs, maps and postcards, other activities concerning books, authors and publishers take place, such as book presentations, literary evenings, meetings with writers and book-signing, exhibitions of certain publishers and editions, to name but some. A special place is reserved for foreign books and periodicals and more and more attention is paid to them.
This is a shop you find in the centre just on the street on the left of Republike square. It was an excellent discover for me as it was really close to the hotel which did not have water in the minibar, so I started with buying water and then used to go every night for a snack, a drink or whatever I may need to when the other shops were closed.
What to buy: Mainly food and drink it's the first place where I see a 2 liters bottle of beer.
What to pay: it has supermarket prices, probably a bit more expensive being so centrally located.
