How moving into a new apartment in Dubai can make your life miserable

How moving into a new apartment in Dubai can make your life miserable   The final day of you staying in a shared bedroom is approaching. The salary is better, appetite is higher. From the 1st of the next month, you will be starting a new amazing life in your own apartment with a nice pool and gym. There is only one little problem - how to create a budget for it? I can see that your cursor is already hovering Search button on Dubizzle website. 1 bedroom, jlt, parking yes, 4 cheques etc. Numbers seem fine so far, maybe because there is a silent depreciation of apartments in UAE.

Mornings in Belgrade: 7 things you can expect

Mornings in Belgrade: 7 things you can expect

1. People rushing to work and crowded buses, trams and trolleybuses. Skip public transportation if you can. Walk. The mystery no one can solve in Belgrade is: Where do all the all 75+ people go early in the morning? Why don't they sleep? Do they have some seriously important business they have to finish from 7 to 9 AM, during the worst traffic hour in Belgrade, that can't be finished when there's no crowd in public transportation? Probably we'll never know the answer to this puzzle.   2. Freshly baked pastry aroma coming out of the bakeries. Burek, fresh and soft rolls, pretzels, croissants, many different sorts of bread, because here we like eating a lot of bread and any kinds of dough. While in Belgrade you surely won't miss your breakfast. So Belgrade will make you even healthier, right? :) We recommend you try a simple breakfast: pretzel with a cup of yogurt! The combination of softness and sweetness of a pretzel spattered...

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia A few days ago I had the opportunity to talk with one Spanish lady who is apparently a big fan of Belgrade and generally our culture. After few routinely generated questions like where have you been, which place you visited and rest, I noticed that most of her answers are focused on things, not on places. Finishing my 3rd glass of wine I start wondering what will be the things which make the best impressions on foreigners. Let's face it, our cities are beautiful but you cannot really compare them with the biggest European capitals. So, it can't be the landscape which drives them spending their yearly vacations in our place. It is something else. She mentioned that only reason for visiting Belgrade was because her friend invited her, otherwise she will never come. From here I realize the main thing - they come because of PEOPLE. I know that folks in homeland have different...

Incredible India

Incredible India

In the heart of India Around 3 years ago my arse was fitting armchair in the suburb of Belgrade (Kumodraz city). The clock showed 4 PM and that was a sign that Tv channel needs to be moved to number 701 or the Travel channel. Approximately 5.1 times per hour there was a commercial about Incredible India. Spiritual, monumental place which is the homeland of 1.3 billion people never actually made a big impression on me. I was deceived by numerous viral videos of primitive people who harm each other with no reason. I was sure that my foot will never step on Indian soil. Three years later here I am, standing in a queue for eVisa at Indira Gandhi airport in Delhi. To be frank, I will never do that if there were not a lot of amazing Indian people in Dubai who convince me to try. Obviously, my mother wasn't convinced. A daily controller of my digestion tablets collection, she was the only difficulty I felt in...

Ultimate Belgrade Summer Guide

Ultimate Belgrade Summer Guide

Summer in Belgrade is hot. Temperatures are high, usually above 35°C, and city concrete almost starts to melt down under the Sun. The reason why you shouldn't worry about it is that Belgrade is built on the confluence of two large rivers, Sava and Danube, that help us cool down and that send us refreshing breeze. Your to-do list when traveling to Belgrade in the summertime can be almost limitless. Sometimes we feel like the only summer of double length can be enough to drink every coffee, every glass of wine, to soak every sun ray, visit every party. This is why you need to be precise about what you want out of summer in Belgrade. This is our little Summertime Belgrade guide! Belgrade Makes You Feel Like You're at the Seaside Did you know that Belgrade has its own seaside? :) It actually is how we call Ada Ciganlija - "More Beograda" or Belgrade sea. Ada is a river island on Sava that is incredibly well arranged so that you...

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...
