“Often when we are this amazed by the space, the people, the atmosphere, the openness, we say “it’s like we are not even here” and that is exactly how the cooperation with Nataša and Vladimir Marković, the hotel owners, is. It’s like we are somewhere we want to be, surrounded by creativity, talent and beauty. Hotel Belgrade is the Belgrade that we love. ”
