Well every country got it's own things that they're famous for.
The Netherlands for cloaks, windmills and cheese, and of course the waterworks and the flowers.
England for their humor whiskey and ale, the famous buildings in London, Scotland for it's Haggis, that nobody wants to eat, except the scottish.
Belgium for it's beer and french fries (don't know why they call them french fries), America for it's cars and fat food and fat people, the army, the statue of liberty and the skyscrapers.
Italy for the Pisa-tower, Pizza and spaghetti
And Russia for the Kremlin and Russian Roulette.

Well, let's hear it...

Ireland is mostly famous for it's red-headed people, well, when I was in Ireland about 5 years back, I ddin't see much red-haired people.
Of course also for the Irish Whisky.
Unfortunately the national sports with the big wooden spoon, hurling, isn't famous in the rest of the world, it's funny to watch.
When I was in Ireland I first saw an amateur-competition where one guy got the spoon full on his helmet. While he was staggering across the field anonther opponent run past him and put his shoulder under the chin of the swaggering guy. Well, he went down... rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing

Well, it's a problem, we have coffeeshops which are legal and may have about 500 grams in the shop. But delivering cannabis to them is a crime. Lately about ten cities tried to start up their own plantations of cannabis, putting the criminals out of the game. Now we'll have to wait if it works. The cannabis delivered by the criminals is way stronger, officially declared a hard-drug now. So I hope the production by regulation works. It also will be good to keep the taxes as low as possible, and the dutch taxes are the highest in Europe already.
In most pubs and public areas smoking isn't allowed, also smoking cannabis. I think within 50 years nobody smokes and the cigarettes-industries is gone forever. I hope so, for smoking is very dangerous.

Don't know if you saw the movie Behind enemy lines with Gene Hackman, and not sure if it was filmed in Serbia, but I loved the landscapes there.

Depends on which part of the U.S. your in. Florida is known for it's key lime pies. The south is known for it's bar-b-que which can differ from state to state, fried chicken, cornbread, and buttermilk biscuits sometimes served with pork sausage gravy. New York is known for it's steak, Nathans hot dogs and thin crust pizza. Chicago is known for it's deep dish pizza. Boston is known for it's baked beans and Boston cream pie. The northeast has lots of maple trees so maple syrup and New England clam chowder. Maine has it's lobster. Wisconsin for it's cheese. Philadelphia for it's cheese steak sandwiches. The Northern Nevada high plains desert is loaded with sage brush so after it rains the whole place smells like turkey stuffing. California for it's sushi rolls, chicken and vegetable salad pizzas and vegan foods. San Francisco for sourdough bread and pizza crusts. Just for example.

Okay, need to go there once then. The story ain't very brilliant, but the landscapes gave the movie it's great looks.
But it can wait till they speak proper English there, once been in the Czech trpublic, didn't like it very much.
