“Nice try”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

There is actually, not a place of any interest... Nice try to ''act luxurious'' but in reality-very poor and dirty.

“Dortiol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

First some history, originally part bellow Cara Dusana street was called Dortiol (crossroads) by the osman turks it was populated mostly by foreigners (Greeks, Turks ... ) and Jewish community was strong in this neighborhood due to this architecture which is still present in this part of the city is quite diverse. Unfortunately many of the old buildings are not restored but one can imagine them in their former glory. Today Dorcol is generally considered an area which is bordered by Francuska street (which is following old town walls), Kalemegdan and Knez Mihajlova street. It is a vibrant part of the city with numerous cafes, bars, restaurants and some clubs. I have been living in this part for some 3 years now and still like to wander around the streets and discover new and interesting buildings and passage ways if possible pay attention to numerous parks which are surrounded by buildings and represent a distinctive contrast to the street life. Streets in the upper part of Dorcol are mostly named by Serbian national heroes which were involved in fight for independence from Turks.
Some recommendations:
If you happen to be in Belgrade in April during the religious holiday “Cvijeti” try to visit Jevremova Street which is on this day full of various performers and some of old buildings are opened for visitors.
Also, weather permitting I would suggest that you take a stroll down to the river and chill out in some of the numerous river café’s (such as Tadeus). Walk can be extended also to the right side (when facing the river) where you can find a old and abandoned factory which will be converted to new exclusive living space.
Beko building, across the zoo, is also interesting, however entrance is possible only if there are some exhibits present.
For a good cocktail I would suggest central bar (reservations are preferable), in summer supermarket has excellent terrace with good mojitos, food in supermarket is also good (international) and they have a Sunday morning brunch with live jazz also you can buy a dorcol guide there since it is part restaurant and part concept store. Fast food, unavoidable Loki for burgers, Sarajevski cevap (cara dusana street) for cevapcici, Glumac (close to the national theatre) for huge crepes and Bucko (francuska street) for pizza slice. As far as traditional food is concerned I can not recommend any restaurant in Dorcol however Skadarlija is near and full of excellent restaurants with traditional food and live music.
In the winter tube is a good club to go to, if you like electronic music.
Strahinjica Bana street is a price and infamous one (silicon valley or the street of the ostriches) full of pricy / fancy bars and restaurants, out of which I would suggest insomnia for coffee, soho for sushi or a night out (in winter reservations again are preferable, and since this place becomes a popular bar I would not recommend eating there late at night), kontra bar for cocktails
Other streets are full of noticeable buildings, I would especially recommend Kralja Petra street.

All in all this are should defently be on your must visit list.
