Roda centar is the biggest shopping mole in Kragujevac. But it also can be said that it is the only one. It was opened in summer of 2008. Besides supermarket, post office, bank, pizzeria, children's play corner… it has more than 60 shops. The only way to complete describing of such shopping center is to copy-paste the list of the shops – so, among other things there are La Coste, Benetton, Sisley, Tommy Hilfiger, Converse, Diesel, Timberland, Office Shoes, Champion, IPS, Rang, Chicco, Geox, Puma, Ciciban, Alpina, Peko, Slowatch, Polzela, Tiffany, Svilanit, Jagger, Lee Cooper, Legend, Martini Vesto, Energie, Miss Sixty, Zlatarna Celje, Todor, Extreme intimo, Kenvelo shop…
If you need to buy clothes, accessories for your home, jewellery, perfumes, shoes or develop photos this is the place you want to visit. A photo place on the first floor of the shopping centre develops excellent pictures in no time. I have found that developing pictures there is significantly cheaper than doing so at home.
When you are looking for a supermarket in Serbia you'll have a hard time find a really big store. Maxi is as big as it gets in Kragujevac. Here you'll be able to find pretty much anything that western type supermarkets carry.
Pijaca is the Serbian word for an outdoor market. Pijaca is the place you go to for fresh vegetables and fruit. All these things are sold by the growers themselves. What makes the pijaca special is the fact that most things you buy you can be sure where picked that very morning. It doesn't get any fresher than that.
What to buy: When you go to the pijaca you can also find things other than food. Pijaca often serves as a fleamarket. You can find everything from your typical dollar store items to hand woven wool sweaters.
