The names of the first academics were announced by King Milan on 5 April 1887. At that time, there existed four sections in the academy, which were then called "specialised academies". Four academics were appointed to each section:

Wow, it is a very nice building. I have a book about European capitals, and it says Belgrade is the Cinderella of the Balkans. Its author is an idiot, IMO.

What about Niš?

Gračanica monastery

Gračanica (Serbian: Манастир Грачаница, Manastir Gračanica) is a Serbian Orthodox monastery. It was founded by the Serbian king Stefan Milutin in 1321. Gračanica Monastery was declared Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1990, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia, and on 13 July 2006 it was placed on UNESCO's World Heritage List under the name of Medieval Monuments in Kosovo as an extension of the Visoki Dečani site which was overall placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger.

The Gračanica Monastery is one of King Milutin's last monumental endowments. It is situated in the village of Gračanica, a Serb enclave 5 km (3.1 mi) from Pristina. The monastery is in the close vicinity of Lipljan (ancient Roman town of Ulpiana), the old residence of bishops.

It is not Kalemegdan fortress - It is Belgrade fortress and Kalemegdan park. Kalemegdan derives from two Turkish words (kale - fortress, megdan - battlefield). Turks call Belgrade kale or simply Kale, like Skopje kale or simply Kale and more. Kalemegdan is free open field before fortress for battle which is now big green park with trees, fountains, statues and sculptures.

Small spa/town in Serbia called Spa Vrnjci, or Vrnjačka Banja in Serbian.
It is very popular turistic resort in Serbia, which has a lot of atractions, such as mineral water springs which are used to lower the effect of many chronic diseases, Carnival of Vrnjci, festival of house music LoveFest, and many other cultural events. The resort is situated in the valley, beneath Goč mountain, and it has park which was built in 1930's by Czech architects.

Horses and small trains are the only way to travel around the park if you aren't in good condition.
