Skadarlija - the old Bohemian quarter of Belgrade grew up at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century when the cafés were frequented by the leading lights of Belgrade cultural life. It is most frequently compared to the Paris quarter of Montmartre, both because of its appearance and its happy, ebullient, creative atmosphere.
The famous Serbian poet and painter Đura Jakšić lived and died in Skadarlija. His house was converted into a meeting point for poets from the "Skadarlija Soirées" ("Skadarlijske večeri"). Today you will find in Skadarlija, which is now a leading Belgrade tourist attraction, the famous restaurants of Tri Šešira, Ima dana, Dva jelena, Skadarlija, Zlatni bokal and Dva bela goluba, as well as galleries, antique shops and souvenir stalls.
