I am looking for places to buy cheap book (dictionaries) in Belgrad. And I am only going to be there very briefly (travelling through the city), so I would appreciate places you know and not far off from the motorway/main streets.

Also, is “антикварница” the word for a second-hand bookstore in Serbian?


According to the news page for Magellan Bookstore translated via google:

05/20/2016. Bookstore MAGELAN the requirements of its users will not close the door during the summer season. Bookstore will operate at full capacity during the summer months of July and August.

The store sells books in English and Serbian:

Magellan Bookshop is second-hand bookshop based in centre of Belgrade, Serbia. It is probably the only second-hand bookshop selling titles in English language continuously in this part of the world. It has great selection of books, in Serbian and English, especially in areas of: biography, travel & exploration, classics fiction, literary criticism, art, religion, philosophy, psychology and history. Opening times: Monday to Friday 12-20, Saturday 10-14.

There is a google streetmap view from 2013

антикварница appears to just be an antique shop according to a web search, rather than a second hand bookstore. I'm afraid I'm not sure what the correct translation should be.

    @iyoossaev At least if you go there they'll be able to point you at other places or even phone for you if they don't have what you want – Berwyn Aug 14 '16 at 20:44
  • Will keep that in mind – I just hope I will have time for that. – MrVocabulary Aug 16 '16 at 7:16
