The bohemian soul of Belgrade - 1.1 km from MamaTravel back in time to the city’s Bohemian movement by walking down cobblestoned Skadarlija Street, paved with nineteenth century stones. First occupied by gypsies in the 1830s, the area became known as the ‘Gypsy Quarter’ until the late 1800s, despite the renovations that had occured during that time.
From the 1850s onward, the streets and buildings were filled with hungry artists, actors, caterers, clerks and other artisans. Their stories still set the tone of the neighborhood today thanks to the street performers who sing about them, or the buildings’ murals that depict the scenes of their lives. Today, the Skadarlija quarter is protected by law and myriad small shops and cafés line the street. It’s like Belgrade’s very own Montmartre.More details Less detailsThe best shopping address
