The present Skadarlija, a short and curved street, is a remarkable Belgrade tourist attraction.

"?" Question Mark Kafana

"?" Question Mark Kafana

The oldest of Belgrade inns, The Question mark, is located in Kralja Petra Street 6 and is one of the symbols of Belgrade. Erected in 1823 as the property of Prince Miloš Obrenović, it was built by “masters from Grezia” in the Balkans style. It had changed owners and names since 1878. First it was called “At the Shepherd’s” in 1878, then in 1892 “At the Cathedral Church” but church authorities protested so the owner put the question mark sign at the door as a temporary solution and it remained there to this day. It housed the first billiards game in Belgrade in 1834 and was the first reading room for the “Serbian Papers” from the same year. Restaurant “Znak Pitanja” is located in the heart of Belgrade. Its atmosphere and its charm make it an iconic gathering place for Serbian bohemians. The offer of the restaurant includes the specialties of national cuisine and excellent drinks that are simply irresistible. The restaurant also includes two open gardens that offer an ideal ambience for a complete delight. The restaurant’s gardens, and also some of the tables in the restaurant, have a spectacular view over Saborna Church. Our recommendation from our offer is all grilled dishes and “Vodenicarska Muckalica” (a traditional Serbian dish with meat and vegetables).
