You don’t have to read Serbian to find Belgrade’s Yellow Cab to be a superb site for cultural and entertainment information in the Serbian capital.

True, the great majority of the site’s content is in fact in Serbian. Check it out anyway—it’s pretty easy to decipher, and it’s exciting to see what Belgrade’s young people use as their complete city guide.

Here’s a quick lexicon of terms for figuring out Yellow Cab. Under the main heading of Adresar, you’ll find thorough lists for clubs (Klubovi), museums (Muzeji), and cinemas (Bioskopi), among other subjects.

Under the Doga?aji heading, there are an additional number of self-evident categories. Click on Filmovi to find a complete listing and schedule of the films playing at each of the city’s cinemas. Within Koncerti, find a listing of concerts in the city. Click on Clubbing for, um, wait for it…club schedules.

Thanks to Serbian graphic designer Pedja Zdravkovic for hipping us to this site.

About the author

In order to keep a promise she and her brother had made to their grandmother (and to simultaneously fulfill one of her own dreams) Kaymaria left her beloved hometown of Oakland, California and headed to Athens in time for the 2004 Olympics. Today, she continues to work and play in the Greek capital, where you may find her writing atop Lykavittos, road-tripping with overseas guests, enjoying Athens cafés with friends, dancing to Greek hip-hop music, or reading Greek subtitles in an outdoor cinema. The daughter of two life-long educators and enthusiastic travelers, Kaymaria has explored North America, Mexico, and Europe. It was not until she spent a year as an exchange student at The University of York in England, however, that she discovered that she does not actually speak English.
