Do you know any other city that arouse from ash exactly 38 times? 40 different armies tried to concurred him? Belgrade is the capital of Serbia and Montenegro, with about 2 mil inhabitants. Not only that Belgrade is the centre of economics and politics, it is also the cultural centre of our country. * 1808 The Great School and University of Arts (today's Belgrade University or simply BU) * 1832 National Library of Serbia * 1841 National Museum * 1869 National Theatre * 1886 Serbian Academy of Science and Art (SANU) was found under name Serbian Royal Academy

Belgrade travelogue picture
Belgrade is a modern, western type of city with special Balkan soul that is immortal. He is always awake and ready to embrace kind people with his warmth and joy. His streets are always busy and crowded with people and if you happen to live here, it is almost impossible to take a walk down some of the main streets and not to see someone that familiar. The best way to capture Belgrade's immortal soul is to visit Skadarska Street or simply Skadarlija. And what is this Skadarlija? Ingredients: Three Hats, Two Deers, Two Tobacco Leafs... What are those, you might ask yourself. Well, those are the names of some of the oldest and best known restaurants in Belgrade. But if you are a youngster, craving for wild night life, you are also welcome in Skadarlija because there are so many night clubs. But then again, you can find them all over Belgrade.

What's really great:
Belgrade stands on two divine rivers: Sava and Danube. There is also an artificial lake made in Sava's meander on the other side of a river island called Ada Ciganlija, and it is placed in the city. This lake is a well known city beach where Beogradjani (citizens of Belgrade) search for shelter during the hot summers.

During the past decade English and Irish pubs have become very popular here, but they also have the touch of Serbia... What I recommand is to visit some of the nice terraces Belgrade offeres. You will find them full in the day time as well as evenings. And certainly visit one of 4 "Greenet" coffe houses. It is the best coffe you can find and I especially recommand Moka...

Now with some border-posts going down and europe uniting, certainly to be considered for a long-weekend trip from Munich soon. Thanks for a good travel-tip.
