Geocache Description:

Old Houses: Tavern still waiting to be named


This house, one of the oldest in Beograd, is probably also the most famous. Why? Because it is a tavern, and taverns are generaly more famous than museums ...

One of the oldest houses in Belgrade, at the same time is a tavern. It seems that this tavern is still waiting to get its name because it is called Question mark or just ?

Question mark or Taverna ? in the begining of XX century

This tavern with such unusual name is the oldest in Belgrade. Initially, the house was the residence of a Macedonian diplomat from Ohrid, but later Milosh Obrenovic donated the house to Dr. Toma Ecim as a gratitude for his serviced for Serbian people during the Second Serbian Uprising.

Earlier the tavern has had several names - "By the church", "By the shepherd," but not knowing how to call it, the new owner has set up a big question mark in front of the door. Shortly afterwards, Belgrade citizens accepted the name and the tavern still bear this name. The tavern is famous also for its first billiard table in Belgrade (1834).


Ova kuća , jedna od najstarijih u Beogradu, je verovatno i najpoznatija.Zašto? Jer to je kafana, a uopšte uzevši, kafane su mnogo poznatija mesto nego, recimo, muzeji

Jedna od najstarijih beogradskih kuća je u isto vreme i kafana. Izgleda da kafana jos uvek ceka da dobie svoje ime, jer se zove Znak Pitanja ili Kafana ?

Not in this taverna, but Serbian men love tavernas

Danas ova kafana sa tako nesvakidašnjim imenom je najstarija u Beogradu. Prvobitno, prostor kafane je bio rezidencija makedonskog diplomate sa Ohrida, no kasnije je Miloš Obrenović poklonio kuću doktoru Tomi Ećimu u znak zahvalnosti za dobra dela koja je učinio za srpski narod u toku Drugog srpskog ustanka.

Question mark or Taverna ? today

Kafana je imala nekoliko imena - "Kod crkve", "Kod pastira", no neznajući kako da je nazove, vlasnik je postavio veliki znak pitanja ispred ulaznih vrata. Nedugo potom, Beograđani su prihvatili ovaj naziv i kafana i dan danas nosi to ime. Verovatno ne postoji Beograđanin koji nije bar jednom u životu bio u Znaku pitanja. Kafana je poznata i po prvom bilijarskom stolu u Beogradu (1834).
