3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in a small village named Smiljan. Since his childhood, he expressed great interest in science and, despite some opposition by his parents, he enrolled studies in Graz, where he studied all day long (except only 4 hours he used to spend sleeping). He traveled through Europe, he also studied in Prague, he worked in Maribor, Budapest, Paris, and Strasbourg, and in 1884 he went overseas, to the United States, where he, with short breaks, remained his entire life and accomplished things so revolutionary and futuristic that, even today, we can't understand the complete range of his greatness. Writing about his inventions here would be totally inappropriate, not just because we would need like a year for that, but also because there is this beautiful and a humoristic comic story about Tesla which made a lot of people explore Tesla's work and life: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla. We'll just stick to that that Tesla is probably the greatest...

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

My father used to say: "Speak Serbian so everyone can understand you". Although it might work "u Bec" or Mönchengladbach, in UAE it's a different case. Dubai is a home of 100+ various nationalities. Most of them eat biryani so knowing Arabic will not make much difference. English is the first language, but knowing English will not make you better than others. (Having their passport will do). So in order to adapt quickly, this is a set of words you need to know before coming in Dubai. Top 10 Words you need to know before you come in Dubai!!! Yalla (Arabic) - or "come on". Sometimes goes in couple with Habibi. Commonly used when you are in hurry or parked in a wrong zone and waiting for your friend to buy shawarma. Inshallah (Arabic) - Be careful with this word. Even after 2 years still not sure should i believe people who use this one. Should stand for "If God allows" but in reality is more like "Sredicemo nesto" or "We...

How to take a tour around Dubai with your visiting guests which will blow their mind but not your pocket?

How to take a tour around  Dubai with your visiting guests which will blow their mind but not your pocket? Dubai is an expanding developing, but expensive city. That one which can be seen in 50% of nowadays Serbian singers videos. The one which brings goose-bombs on your skin when you check it on YouTube and one which appears in most Instagram photos with the hashtag #richkidsofinstagram. These and many more other things are the reasons why everyone wants to come and visit this awesome place. All you need is one kidney less and a FlyDubai promotion ticket. These and many more other things are the reasons why everyone wants to come and visit this awesome place. All you need is one kidney less and a FlyDubai promotion ticket. Like in Vienna or Dusseldorf, everyone in Serbia has someone in Dubai, so better to sleep at his place (along with his fellows from Egypt and Morocco) and use him as your private tourist guide.

Interview with SerbInDubai

Interview with SerbInDubai

Interview with SerbInDubai Hi friends i just did an interview, 3 months ago I started this project called SerbinDubai in order to help Serbs and other nationalities to adapt to life in Dubai. During this period I noticed that with an every single article our fan-base increased. People started to recognize "Dragisa" and I am very grateful on that. Also, somewhere in between one portal notice our work and suggested to create a short video about us (SerbInDubai and me). This portal name is NasBiro and they make awesome stories about people who got the courage to come here and do something with their life (and much more cool stuff - check them out). Currently, an interview we made is on Serbian language but in the future, we will try to make subtitles for our foreign supporters. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9GVZsc1_KA  ...

Most used abbreviations in Dubai!!!

Most used abbreviations in Dubai!!!

Living in IMPZ but working in DIC Usual start of a conversation with someone you meet for the first time and you want to be a smart-ass. Serb in Dubai likes to be a smart-ass and that's why he dedicated this article to you. Abbreviations are a common thing in a language of Dubaians. You can easily crack how long they stay in Dubai by their ABB knowledge. " Hi man let's meet at DFC next to R-C*". Expats who spent less than 1 year will probably think about your bad pronunciation of K  and prepare their stomach for delicious Zinger Twister Meal. But the real deal is who still eat in KFC when Kulcha King opened new branches all over the city. So to avoid confusion, Serb in Dubai will reveal the formula for you. Abbreviations formula D -  believe it or not, it stands for Dubai. But, if to you girls someone suggests meeting D on Tinder trust me it is not Dubai. I - usually stands for...

Dubai nightlife !!!!

Welcome to Dubai nightlife !!!! Welcome to Dubai, new readers!! In this article, Serb in Dubai will lead you through the points you should know before stepping up your game into the wild nightlife of Dubai. Brace your wallets and enjoy the ride(only up til 3 am). First and foremost, the essential part is to prepare yourself mentally. It is not an easy decision. This decision you will remember for a long time. Let’s imagine going out in Dubai is like a global recession. Basically, you will feel the consequences long after (when you check the statement from your bank account). If you are a Serb or some other member of a former Balkan community and you prolong “It is only one life rule” let God helps you. This rule doesn't work in Dubai because you don't have Baba at home to feed you if you spend all your money. (Disclaimer for other nationalities -  Balkan region is famous for spending more than they earn on party...
