Investigating the Lunacy of Chinatown/BLOK 70 in Belgrade, Serbia
Exploring Belgrade’s unexpected Chinatown, Blok 70, is like walking into a bizarre Star Wars movie set. Inside the two gigantic warehouses, squeezed in among mind-boggling amounts of stuff from every corner of your imagination, Chinese, gypsies, and Serbs bustle frantically about and haggle in primitive Srpski, as the smell of Chinese food wafts down from the upstairs restaurants. Fans of the strange, cheap, and exotic, and bargain hunters can get lost here for hours. If you get tired of the chaos, noise and smell, retreat to a nearby café an enjoy a smoke and espresso while taking advantage of the absolutely unique people watching to be had here.
