  • Restaurant: ?

    This is one of the most famous restaurants in Belgrade, with what has to be the shortest name in the world (although there may be others with equally short names). The name results from an argument between the owner and the Orthodox cathedral across the street from it. The clergy were not happy with the restaurant using its name to advertise...

    Belgrade is choked with traffic, and almost all of it very old cars with bad engines. About half of the cars are old Yugos, which pollute the air like the Trabants of East Berlin, leaving a pall of smog over the city, slowly choking its inhabitants to death. It's as bad as smoking 20-30 cigarettes a day, and the Serbs smoke lots of those too. With...

When I left the city I saw the camp again, and I...
