Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia? We feel that most of the people who visit Serbia build a very positive opinion of our country. They like many different things, from architecture and monuments to people and food. However, the number of foreign visitors of Serbia, although increasing significantly every year, is still not on a level which people who have a nice opinion of Serbia would expect. Why is that so? We believe one of the main reasons could be - safety. Writing these lines, we are referring to all of our non-Serbian readers, and we would really appreciate to be corrected if we are wrong, but - to us it looks like the most of the world is still of the opinion that here either the war is still ongoing or that it has just ended and there are suspicious people who could rob, kidnap or otherwise harm somebody who comes from abroad, especially from the west. All we can say...

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.

Top 25 facts about the Serbs!!!!!

Top 25 facts about the Serbs!!!!!

Who are the Serbs? Serbia is a mythological nation stuck on the Balkan peninsula. Descendants of South Slavs, these guys have participated in some of the biggest world events - "Discovery of Rakija" , "WW1 misunderstanding", "Invention of power/wifi - N.Tesla" and probably the biggest culprits of Twilight saga movies (created vampires - sorry guys). They are also known as " the Oldest species", "People from heaven" and many more. Some people say that they are fearless and brave but when promaja strikes- everyone is running away. (Promaja -the biggest enemy of the Serbs , cold assassin and sneaky bastard. Usually attacks from back and hitting the "Krsta" ). ->Windy draft that happens when two windows on opposite sides of the house are opened. Currently there are ~ 12-13 millions worldwide and most of them you can recognize by these things. TOP 25 facts about the Serbs Getting best business ideas in Kafana.

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  ...

Winter is coming!!!!

Winter is coming!!!!

Brace yourself winter is coming!!!! Average Serb waits for many things in life but the one who lives in Dubai waits only for one -the month of October (and salary as well). Why? Simply because we can finally go out. Average temperatures in Dubai during the summer days are enough to make popcorn without a microwave. Humidity  - don't even mention that. Just imagine instant showering the moment you leave your beloved apartment (in Marina with just a few roommates from all around the world = 10, Mostly South Asians). But October is something beautiful. This is the period when all Dubai-ans start preparing for the winter season. So brace yourself!!! Winter is coming. First and the most important thing to prepare is new bikini or swimsuits. Water temperature will drop under 30 degrees Celsius, so no more sauna effect.  Obviously, you worked out a lot during summer and you don't want to show new abs in an old suit. Imagine what will your...

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. To survive Serbian Slava follow these tips: Don't eat anything whole day, you need to prepare for the following feast. Always bring wine, and the same wine comes to you when you...
