Hello fellow wanderers,

How are you doing? Hope you had a nice start of the spring season. We have a special story to share with you. You can already guess what we are going to tell you, right?

Belgrade is a wonderful Balkan destination. As a capital of Serbia it does have much to offer when it comes to museums, gardens, shops, cafés and kafanas, the local bistros. We had a brief weekend there. Time flies when we explore such beautiful locations.

Let’s start with some architecture, shall we? We would not be able to show you all, but a little sneak peak of the central part of the city starting with the National Assembly. We can’t miss any horse statues, so we got a little closer to the entrance where there are two of them and took another close up shot of the building.

Historically Belgrade has seen massive bombing attacks, the latest of which happened in 1999. Yet the city nowadays is full of life and reminds the legend of the phoenix that rises from the ashes. No wonder they have erected a lot of churches and temples to manifest their faith. We visited the Church of Saint Sava located on a hill in the heart of the Serbian capital. The interior is still under construction. Standing across the entrance we dedicated this photo to you, our most beloved and curious readers.

We continued our tour without a direction in search of the not-so-touristic places. There are always sights you can read about, and then there are those that you simply discover on your way. Among our most peculiar findings was the “?” kafana. Don’t question, just have a look below.

Our walk ended with a piece of superb urban art. Belgrade is the hometown of a lot of Serbian musicians. We found out from the writings that a member of the local punk rock band named JNA inspired this beautiful graffiti. The lyrics on the right side translated should mean:

‘My spirit has been set free,

You will see it on the way to south!’

Now it is time to end our tour, but we promise to come back for more. There are still more stories from Belgrade to be told. We know you would love to hear another one.  Kalemegdan park experience woud be shared in our next article. Stay tuned, it’s coming soon.

Your always travelling,
