In our new column Meet a local we present interesting individuals from different professional fields living in Belgrade. The idea is to get to know some locals and their favorite neighborhoods and venues in the city.
Please introduce yourself to our readers:
My name is Srđan Miljević and I was born in Belgrade 33 years ago. I’ve graduated from University of Arts in Belgrade and have been working on different projects in nongovernmental sector. I also work as a writer and proofreader.
Has there been a new project lately?
I am devoted to finalization of my first collection of short stories, which should be published in 2019.
What do you like about Belgrade?
I like its cozy and friendly atmosphere. I dislike its dirty and traffic jam. But, that is all Belgrade and we all love it!
Where do you like to go out?
During summer, Belgrade night life is definitely on the river. Therefore, I always vote for 20/44. Winter brings us to the Drugstore. As simple as that.
Name 3 of your favorite restaurants in the city?
Kafana Polet, Homa Restaurant and Marenda.
Where do you drink coffee?
Tri, Kozmetičar and cafeteria Lokal.
Where do you spend your leisure time?
I attend events related to literature, films and different festivals in Belgrade during the year.
Name your 3 favorite locations in Belgrade and justify your choice.
Kalenić pijaca, because that is where you feel a real life, but with smile.
Ada Ciganlija gives you whatever you need. I like riding a bike around the lake and being isolated from a city crowd.
Vračar is a part where I live currently. I enjoy this part of Belgrade because of the nice architecture, friendly people and interesting elder people who are always keen to talk to you.
