Serbian Etiquette

It is always polite to bring a small gift like flowers, wine or chocolate when asked to dinner at a Serbian’s house.  It is also appropriate to remove your shoes when entering the house.  If you are asked to dine out, the host pays the entire bill and it is not polite to ask to pay.  However, it is expected that you offer to pay at the next dinner outing.

Three kisses are common on the cheeks by alternating cheeks.  It is done by shaking hands at the same time. The same procedure is used when you say goodbye.  Younger women will exchange one kiss only.  Looking people in the eyes when you speak is very important.
