The increasingly popular website, Spotted by Locals, has added Belgrade to its list of cities.

Spotted by Locals, a website on which tourists can find city guides and which also has android and iphone applications, has included Belgrade in its list of 46 cities in Europe and America.

The website recommends the best places to visit in a slightly different style from most tour guides, as the list of “must sees” and reviews are all written by locals.

That is why the website provides items of information and tips that foreigners won’t find in normal city guides.

The slogan of Spotted by Locals is, “If you want to experience a city in the right way, you have to live the life of its residents”.

The website and application were created by Sanne and Bart van Poll, a couple from Amsterdam who wanted to create a tool to help all those who felt frustrated by official tour guides.

Some off-the-beaten-track sites that Spotted by Locals suggest to visitors in Belgrade are the open-air antique bookstore in Kaplara street and the Pinball Wizard store in Makedonska, a rare shop selling new vinyl records.

The four young Belgraders who wrote the guide for the Serbian capital have come up with more than a hundred tips for visitors.

They offer about 33 suggestions for people mainly interested in arts and culture, and about 30 more on where to go to eat and drink. Information is updated every two or three months.
