Experiencing a Serbian Slava

Experiencing a Serbian Slava

  Srećna slava domaćine!!!!! Every Serbian family has a saint who is patron and protector of the house. That saint is celebrated once a year, and during these three days, every family in Serbia has the biggest people and food management challenge. Slava is an event during which you see long distance cousins, greet your friends and make Serbian hospitality looks like 5-star hotel service at your home. Most of the Slava-s are usually in the winter and during that time most of the people get an extra kg (or 5). (also the time when police get their 13th salary. So prepare money for cab or limit number of your wife's drinks). Tradition says that there is no invitation for Slava, you should just show up, and it is up to the host where you're going to sit.

Balkan In Dubai

Balkan in Dubai!!! I received a lot of comments previous days on my Blog like: "This is nice but there are other nationalities here", "Why are you so focused on Serbs", "Why only Belgrade when there is Zagreb, Sarajevo, Budva...". In order to fix this mess, my friend Darko and me come up with the idea to create something that will mix all from Balkan. Balkan in Dubai.

This rule doesn't work in Dubai because you don't have Baba at home to feed you if you spend all your money.
