What you need to know about Serbia
· Serbian dinars
The currency of Serbia is the dinar (RSD), and it is one of those with a relatively high exchange rate. Cash machines are all over the city too, and there is little benefit to avoiding them in favour of using exchange shops. Change isn’t in abundance, so expect curt looks if you try to pay for one beer with a 5,000RSD note.
· The Cyrillic alphabet
Serbia is a nation of two alphabets, so don’t be surprised to see road signs and menus in both latin and Cyrillic script. The latter of the two isn’t as difficult as it seems, and the phonetic nature of the Serbian language makes reading it remarkably easy. Do a little bit of reading on your flight in order to decipher words like пиво (pivo, or beer) and ресторан (restoran, or restaurant). Like most European nations, English is widely spoken in the cities but less so in the villages.
· Serbian language
Serbian is a Slavic language, so anyone with a passing knowledge of Russian, Polish, Czech (among others) might notice a few similarities uttered on the streets of Belgrade, Niš, Kragujevac and the rest.
· The war is over, and has been for a long time
It is difficult to criticize people for not having intimate knowledge of every country on the planet, but believing that there is still an ongoing war in Serbia is incorrect. NATO’s bombing campaign ended in 1999, as the Yugoslav Wars came to an end a few years earlier. Evidence of destruction is still seen here and there, but the nation hasn’t been a ‘dangerous’ place for a very long time.
· Smoking is allowed
It can often feel that smoking isn’t just allowed in Serbia, but it may seem like it might even be mandatory. The overwhelming majority of folk seem to be willfully puffing away on cigarettes, and bars and cafes in particular can sometimes become hazardous for those sensitive to the smoke. More and more cafes are popping up in Belgrade where smoking is not allowed, but these are still rarities. Smokers will be in paradise but be prepared for your clothes to be a little smelly after a night out.
And while in Belgrade...
As you book your dental clinic and start making the arrangements, take into account you might want to stay a few extra days in Belgrade.
Although it holds a reputation of a party city among young people, the capital of Serbia has a lot to offer to all tourists who enjoy good food, relaxation, and learning a thing or two about its rich heritage and turbulent history.
And because Serbia is underdeveloped, you can enjoy all of it (and so much more) on a low budget.
Fall in love with tastes of Belgrade
You can enjoy famous burek (and a whole lot more of other pastries) for just 2 EUR. Or revel in delicious meals in fancy restaurants that won’t cost you more than 20 EUR per person. In fact, it’ll be hard to decide what to eat because Belgrade offers a plethora of choices to every liking.
It is most famous for its grilled meat specialties, like pljeskavica and cevapi (grilled minced meat), sarma (originally a Turkish specialty), gibanica (meat and cheese pies) and kajmak (unpasteurized creamy cheese).
As for drinks, Serbs are proud of their local wines and rakija (40% + alcohol schnapps, considered a national drink, not for the faint-hearted).
But Belgrade is a metropolitan city and you can also find exceptional pizza, Mexican food, Chinese restaurants, Middle Eastern cuisine, Sushi bars, vegetarian places, a great river fish dishes by the Danube at more than affordable prices.
Relax and rejuvenate at low cost
The doctors and staff in the clinics we work with make sure your dental works and smile makeovers are as comfortable as possible.

Must see in Belgrade
Knez Mihailova is the main pedestrian street in the downtown Belgrade. Bursting with energy and good vibes, with plenty of shops, cafes, cozy restaurants, and people from all walks of life. It’s the core of the city life. Knez Mihailova is the one street you shouldn’t miss walking through, no matter how short your stay in Belgrade is.
The street ends with Kalemegdan park, one of the biggest urban green areas in Belgrade. It stretches around the city fortress (The Citadelle). And the fortress rises above the confluence of the rivers Sava and Danube. It goes without saying; the view is phenomenal.
History lovers will find the Citadelle interesting - the fortress is as old as Belgrade itself. Built around 279 BC it was an object of many battles among the Romans, Celts, Turks, and many others.
But, Kalemegdan is also the home of Belgrade Zoo, Military Museum, Museum of Natural History, Planetarium, the lovely Church Ruzica, and so much more.
When you get tired from walking the downtown Belgrade, its crowd and vigor, the Belgrade bohemian quarter, Skadarska street or Skadarlija is the place to visit. Paved with cobblestones, with iron gaslights and romantic atmosphere, it conjures the atmosphere of the 1900s.
It’s the time when the most famous Serbian poets, actors, singers, and artists gathered in the street’s restaurants (kafane), drank (mostly wine and rakija), socialized and sometimes created their art until sunrise.
The most famous restaurants in the street are Tri Sesira, Dva Jelena, Ima dana, but being popular with the tourists they’re not as affordable as they used to be.
Those interested in churches and religion will soon learn how proud Belgradians are of their Saint Sava temple, one of the greatest (if not the greatest) orthodox churches in the Balkans. A beautiful park and a plateau, amid the most charming area of Vracar, surround the white, marble church, making it one of the most beautiful places to see in Belgrade.
Another church worth the visit, the Cathedral Church of St. Michael the Archangel, sits in the old part of the city. It’s built between 1837 and 1840. Apart from its interesting architecture, the church played an important role in the fight for independence from the Ottoman empire.
In the middle of lush and wide Tašmajdan park, where children from all over the city come to play, there’s yet another notable religious monument worth seeing, St. Marko church.
Known as “the Belgrade seaside,” Ada Ciganlija is an amazing spot for relaxation, swimming in the lake, sunbathing, jogging or enjoying whatever sport you prefer.
Rich with fast food stands, cafes and restaurants, Ada is an excellent choice for spending an entire day in nature, having fun in the sun while being surrounded by the greenery.
Belgrade welcomes anyone and everyone with arms wide open.
Whatever your interests, the chances you’ll find an exciting offer at affordable prices are better than anywhere else in Europe. And we will be happy to recommend the best dental clinic arrange tours according to your specific wants and interests.
