Travelers journeying along the road hundreds of years ago used to drop in for refreshments and snacks after a long trip. They would tell their stories, and as the legend goes, they would spend from morning till down there.
The building that host modern ethno style restaurant was built in 1932. The restaurant was named Kovac (Blacksmith or Smithies) because of the legend say there was one next door working for masters relaxing and storytelling in tavern. Also, because of the old belief that every blacksmith is also a sorcerer, capable of defeating the devil by identifying with him and fooling him at the end. There is also a popular saying that each man forges his own fortune.In autumn of 2005 Kovac was fully renovated and adjusted to cater to what people expect to find in a good restaurant and more.The restaurant specialises in traditional Serbian dishes, barbeque and roast under wrought iron plates and similarities in international cuisine with dishes in an environment redolent of bygone times.
