You are planning a holiday in Belgrade? There are a few general things which would be good for you to know about the capital of Serbia.

Belgrade has a lot of buses. Really a lot of. So it might be a difficult for you to manage in which to sit. It's always better to ask for directions and the staff in Hostel40 will always be glad to give you them. You can take a taxi but that is of course a little more expensive option. Where to eat? Serbian cuisine is very strong and tasty. You should definitely visit some of the national restaurants, preferably in Skadarlija, the old bohemian quarter, which just 10 minutes away from Hostel40.
But if restaurants are too expensive for you, don't be worried. Belgrade is famous for having a lot of fast food restaurants, which are really cheap and one thing is sure. You will not stay hungry after pljeskavica. There are a several of those fast food joints near the Hostel40 so you will not stay hungry when visiting Belgrade. Tap water is safe to drink so you will not need to spend money on bottled water. And if you became home sick Belgrade has a lot of international restaurants and pubs which will take you back home for those couple of hours that you will spend there.
If you're interested in female companionship, then the pubs are the best place to be. You might meet an interesting and engaging woman there. And, if you don't the pub's bartender will certainly know the local escorts who will be glad to show you a good time for relatively little money. Alternately you can hop on the Internet and go to an escort directory such as the Chicago Escort Directory in order to find an escort for the evening.
