Belgrade, Serbia's old world cafés

Walk down any street in Belgrade's Stari Grad – or Old Town – and you're likely to bump into a café. The squares and side streets are littered with them, especially during the summer when the omnipresent tableside fans offer welcome relief from the oppressive heat.

Café culture here has been part and parcel for a couple of decades, though it was first introduced during the 19th century, when the Ottoman Turks ruled the city. Today the most common place to meet a friend or colleague is over a cup of coffee, although in recent years the traditional Turkish coffee has given way to espresso and cappuccino.
