Wandering around Belgrade

4:34:00 PM


First of all, happy International Women's Day!
I don't have much time today, so i decided to take you for a walk around one of my favorite places (if not the favorite) - Belgrade.
It's a city in south east Europe. According to many, it's not a pretty capital, and i say, well, you're what you see. Here's how i (and the camera of my phone) see it:


This is one of my favorite pictures i took recently. It's captured while i was waiting for the bus after exhausting but great visit to the gallery. It was my favorite part of the day, something between day and twilight, when light is soft and sky is becoming pink-ish (although the effect may changed colors a little bit).

Since we started talking about the light and the colorful sky - here's one of the most majestic sunsets i've ever witnessed. I was at university and i couldn't focus on lesson because daamn the sky was on fire. Note: it looked better live.

Oh hello it's me. Belgrade (Beograd on serbian) means white city (beo - white, grad -city) but sometimes it's rather gray. You probably couldn't tell, but this is an area with some of the fanciest restaurants (and river view is really beautiful). Fun fact (i became so informative all of sudden): Belgrade lays on not one but 2 rivers, Danube and Sava, which s great because we don't have a sea.

Here's the view from one splav (or splay, or floating club basically). It was summer, around 1am, party just started and i, naturally, had to capture everything pretty i see. If you ever want to experience nightlife here, don't miss splavs, it's a cool experience.



If you're more into fancy night-outs,  here's how National Theater in Belgrade looks. I was watching Velika Drama (i think it can be translated as The Great Drama)  by Siniša Kovačević. It's one of the best things i've ever watched, it's incredibly sad but it's also very funny (i guess you'll end up crying either way).



On the highway (not to hell, to airport). I don't know, i just love sunsets.

So me and my friends had the phase when we really wanted to find a cool chilling spot on the roof of a building (we still do though, if you know any tell me) and we managed to snuck into one and enjoy the lovely view.


I love this place, it's a gallery near my university so whenever i have spare 20-30ish minutes between lessons i go there. And apparently sing Spider Pig (as i wrote in the caption).



Winter, smell of waffles, my huge warm scarf and musician of the street playing the song i like.


At the end, it's probably not the most beautiful city you'll ever see, although you can find a lot of beauty here. As i mentioned earlier, the best thing about it is it's soul. For some people, including me, the feeling of being here, like a big hug. After all, you can come and see yourself.

Have a great day x

  9. I just returned from Nis, Serbia the other day and had a similar experience. Everyone said it will be ugly, but the people there - they were truly amazing. So warm, calm and happy, despite the obviously difficult economical situation there. Cities are not just the buildings. They are the soul of a nation, the history and so much more...

    Thank you for this beautiful post!

  29. The city looks so similar with Bucharest, wow! I've only passed through Belgrade once, had coffee twice at the train station cafe while changing trains, but I do remember crossing a really impressive bridge over the Danube.

  30. I find Belgrade a bit gloomy by looking at the photo. Not the gloomy kind that will make me sad but the one that will remind me to just take things slow.
