"Russian Tzar" reopened
One of the most emblematic Belgrade restaurants (or "kafanas" in Serbian), called "RUSKI CAR" (eng. "Russian Tzar"), in the building constructed in 1926 at the corner of Knez Mihailova st. and Obilićev Venac st., in the very heart of the city, is reopened after almost 8 years as a nice looking coffee bar / pastry shop. Now you can sit down for a drink or have a cake in a revived vintage atmosphere of the classical place that witnessed so much history from the first opening days back in 1890, in a much smaller building then, that stood on the same spot.
Notice a funny looking word game above the front entrance, where the new owners mixed Serbian cyrilic and English latin. How 'bout that.
