CRNA OVCA ICE CREAM

The majority of ice cream you’ll find in Belgrade is exactly the sort that discerning foodies would warn you off in Italy: heaps of gelato, much of it tinted bright pink or neon green. So when, on our way to find a nice little cafe, we passed by Crna Ovca, suddenly caffeine didn’t seem quite so necessary. It was far more important to find out what was under those silver lids.

Yes, silver lids. It was clear right from the start that Crna Ovca – meaning “Black Sheep” in Serbian – hand-makes their gelato in what must be fairly small batches. The chalked list of about 30 flavors used plus and minus signs to signal which flavors were available at the time.

The list was fairly standard, featuring the usual hits like chocolate chip, hazelnut and vanilla, as well as fruity offerings making the most of regional produce, like pear, raspberry and višnja (sour cherry). A couple of the more unusual offerings, such as Gorgonzola and banana, lemon and honey, weren’t available when we were there.

But there were more than enough to make choosing a flavor difficult. Fortunately, the fine folks at Crna Ovca are happy to be generous with the samples. They’re also able to help out a confused English speaker, so if you’re not as fortunate as I am in having your own translator on hand, don’t let that stop you from asking questions or trying samples.

Because be honest with yourself – would you have ordered a cup of sesame without having sampled it first? I wouldn’t. Yet it was the best thing I tasted that day. The flavor was rich and intense, a nutty, roasted sesame with a coffee background. As we paid, I heard one guy refusing the samples, telling his companions that it was the sesame he’d come for.

But me being me, well, I didn’t get the sesame – I just can’t handle ordering two of the same anything, be it ice cream, beer, or pizza toppings. I went with the tiramisu. The strong coffee base was definitely a plus, perking me up on a cloudy afternoon. But the slightly stale cake pieces detracted from the overall appeal, so next time I’m sure I’ll be tempted by another flavor.

The inside, too, seemed designed to perk up the spirits, with lots of pale wood and creamy aqua. There are a few seats along an L-shaped counter downstairs, and more along the narrow counter upstairs. There are also a couple places to perch outside, which would be handy on those sunnier days.

Service is really really friendly and helpful and treats you like home guest. They attend you all time, ready to explain and give advice.

Food is prepared with a lot of fantasy and attention and really delicious - all dishes are either wow or very very good. These guys love what they do.

Very very recommended.

Tall stone formations of Djavolja Varoš (eng. Devil’s Town) that are actually a group of petrified wedding guests, or at least that is what a legend tells, were nominated for one of the New seven wonders of nature

Whether petrified wedding guests who, on devil’s orders wanted to marry a brother and sister, or people petrified by the witch as they didn’t fulfill their promise; high stone formations on mount Radan in the south of Serbia won’t leave you indifferent. A rare natural phenomenon, Djavolja Varoš was a nominee in the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign.

It is located in Southern Serbia, on mount Radan not far from the town of Kuršumlija. It comprises of more than 200 stone formations, 2 to 15 meters high and up to 3 meters wide, with strange stone caps.

The Djavolja Varoš Natural Landmark belongs to the village of a strange name – Djake, which comes from the Albanian word “gjak” that means blood. The village is located at 660 to 700 meters above sea level. This unusual and mystic place, which very name will chill your bones, comprises of two ravines with ominous names – Djavolja (Devil’s) and Paklena (Hell’s).

The nearby springs – Žito vrele (Wheat spring) and Djavolja voda (Devil’s water), with extremely acid water have well known miraculous properties. A path leads to the stone sculptures and viewpoints offering a spectacular view to the surrounding nature.
Djavolja Varoš consists of two rare phenomena: attractive stone formations created by erosion and two springs of extremely acid water with high mineral content.

Similar phenomena can be seen around the world, none of which is this high and numerous, hence the nomination for the new wonders of nature. Despite not being elected the new wonder, it attracts numerous tourists looking for adventure and mystery.

During centuries people have told legends about this place. According to one legend, these formations are actually petrified wedding guests who, on devil’s orders, wanted to marry a brother and sister. Then God punished them by turning them into stone to stand as a reminder that no sin goes unpunished.

The other legend says that there was a witch who granted people’s wishes as long as they promised to give her whatever she asked for. These 202 stone statues are those who didn’t fulfill their promise or tried to trick the witch.

Science, however, doesn’t have such fairy-tale explanation – Djavolja varoš was formed by erosion.

By destroying forests, man has made way for the destructive power of water. Wind, rain and sun did the rest. Nevertheless, the scientists agree that the shape of some caps and the fact that a peak of 20 to 30 cm in diameter holds a cap of several hundreds of kilograms is somewhat “peculiar”.

Djavolja Varoš is definitely a place to visit. Grandiose and slightly menacing figures in day light, mystical and illuminated by decorative lights at night, these figures will surely leave you breathless. And the legend says that if you drink from one of these springs, you will surely return.

How to get to Djavolja varoš (Devil’s town)?

If you are traveling by car, you can get to Djavolja varoš by turning left towards Dobri Dol on the 80th km on the Niš -Priština road (8 km after the exit for Prolom banja). After 6 km of driving through Zebice village you turn left again and after 3 km of the new asphalt road you get to this unusual monument of nature.

Djavolja varoš is 288 km far from Belgrade and 89 km from Niš. And only 10 km from it, you can find a town named Kuršumlija that is easily reachable by regular bus lines from all major cities in Serbia. From Kuršumlija we recommend taking a taxi to Djavolja varoš.

If you are in the mood for a walk or hiking, you can get to Djavolja varoš by foot from Prolom banja using the “staza zdravlja” (path of health), over the Prolom mountain, which are 9 km long, it would take you around two and a half hours.

When you are already here, don’t miss…

After being amazed by Djavolja varoš, relax in one of the three spas – Prolom, Lukovska, Kuršumlijska, which are famous for their natural beauty and healing powers, ideal for vacation, recreation and healing.

MARKO MARKOVIC TRUMPET PLAYER

Marko Marković inherited his love for music from his father, the legendary trumpet king Boban Marković who has played the trumpet for more than 30 years. In line with the family tradition, Marko started playing the trumpet already before turning five and has been passionately concentrating on the instrument ever since. Marko and Boban have been playing together in an orchestra for years. Marko Marković has collaborated with many famous musicians such as Emir Kusturica, Goran Bregovic, DJ Shantel, Ivo Papazov, Esma Redzepova, etc. He started his own wind instrument orchestra in 2016 and now he is bringing his hot pipes and energetic gypsy music to audionc all over the world. The Balkans are living and breathing wind instrument music – no wedding or other celebration goes by without a wind instrument orchestra. It is hard to describe, you have to experience it yourself. It is more than music, it is part of their identity, a matter of honors, their essence – it is a living and breathing part of culture. The Balkan Peninsula is the area with the largest population of Roma communities. Gypsy music with its exceptionally fast tempo and unbelievably gripping energy has become one of the trademarks of the area. Their characteristic tremendous vitality comes with a marvellously Eastern melancholic soul. The mix of immense energy and longing melancholy does not leave anyone cold.

"House of Flowers" was built in 1975, on the basis of the project by architect Stjepan Kralj. It was built as a winter garden with areas for work and rest of Josip Broz (area 902.00 m2) near the residence where he lived. It consists of three parts: a central - a flower garden, and a two parallel wide corridors on a sides. On the opposite side of the entrance is uncovered terrace with a view of Belgrade. In the central part, following his personal wish, Tito was buried in 1980.

Permanent exhibition in "House of Flowers" consist of local, republic and federal Relays of Youth from the period after the 1957, since when 25. May was celebrated as Youth Day. Beside that, written messages that Tito received with relays, photographs of carrying and transitions of batons, tickets and programs of rallies, and other related material are displayed in the museum.

For almost a decade after the breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia the entire complex (the tomb and the memorial museum) was closed to the public and the military guards were permanently removed. However, today the site is open again to tourists and to people who wish to pay their respects. Many guests, from all over the former Yugoslavia, visit especially on May 25 (Tito's official birth date) - the former Youth Day under Socialism. The memorial was reportedly visited by more than eleven thousand people in 2004, and since 1982, more than 17,000,000 people.

For military history fans, this is definitely a must. The museum can be divided into 2 parts:
- the outside which has a very vast collection of hardware ranging from medieval cannons to WW2 tanks to a Humvee captured during the war in 1999
- the inside which provides information about the military history of Yugoslavia, as well as huge quantities of personal weapons dating from all ages
Its only drawback is the lack of more detailed English explanations, but I found it very worthwhile nonetheless.

Plum brandy ice cream.

It's a very quirky and cute spot! They have a few tables inside which is great. The staff is very very friendly and the decor is a mix of hip/modern and retro.

We came in for ice cream and it was excellent, very creamy and delicious. I can't remember all the flavors we tried but the pistachio stands out in mind as a definite fave!

Rakija is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks in Serbia.[6] It is the national drink of Serbia. Serbia is the world's largest rakia producer and drinks more rakia per capita than any other country.[7][8][9] According to Dragan Đurić, President of the Association of Producers of Natural Spirits, the EU protects the names of beverages by allowing the prefix Serbian.[6] In Serbia there are 10,000 private producers of rakia. 2,000 are on the official register and only about a hundred cellars produce high-quality brandy.[6] In 2007, the European Union awarded Serbia with trademarks for five different rakia brands (Šljivovica, Dunjevača, Medovača, Kruškovača and Jabukovača) making it the only country to have any trademarks for rakia brands.
