I actually like it when it takes longer. Post only when you have time, a few pitures, maybe some descriptions or notes, and it doesn't matter how long it takes. If you post all your pictures at once, and then you stop posting, the thread will die. It will end up buried at the back. Nobody visits inactive threads. I've been visiting this site now for over two years, and I love old threads that are still going. Sometimes I'll go a week or two without visiting at all. So when I come back some threads that get posted too much I simply can't keep up with. But old threads with a few new pictures every week, are more interesting, because I'm always curious to see what is next.

Anyway, I guess we all have our preferences. But non the less still great pictures.

I just noticed your signature below. There great threads you have there, but they are dead. No one has visited them since July and August. They are just buried at the back. What's the point then. You are better off posting one picture a day, a few a week, and do this for as long as you have pictures. This way your thread will go on for years. And who knows who you'll meet and what attention you might draw to yourself as a photographer. But like this it is as if they never existed.

this row of socialist housing fascinated me









The Skull Tower,a monument to 19th century Serbian rebels. It lies on the old Constantinople Road leading to Sofia. The monument was built using the skulls of the Serbs killed by order of Sultan Mahmud II during the 1809 Battle of Čegar, during the First Serbian Uprising (1804-1813). The skulls were first sent filled with cotton to the Sultan in Istanbul. There were 952 skulls, but today only 58 have remained. The rest were removed to be buried or were lost. In 1892 a this chapel was built around the Tower and the skulls are situated inside.

Very powerful pictures. The sense of a region still living alongside its history are very palpable.

I think posts of about 10 - 20 pictures are about right! ( IMO)

Just do what feels right for you though!

Good job.

Unfortunately i didn't have time to visit some places, like Tinker's Alley, the bohemian street and Mediana, where remains of the Roman imperial palace are found, the birthplace of Constantine the Great on the outskirts of the city. I had to run back and catch the bus heading to Macedonia, for which i already had a ticket

Interesting thread and pictures. Belgrade reminds me a bit of Zagreb, which is normal given their proximity.

nice thread, keep it going whenever you have time.

as someone who have been in Armenia and Georgia multiple times so far, I can't wait seeing some photos from there.

Report from Nis was somewhat limited (probably by your time) but quite fairly seen, not unneccesarly beautified but as seen as it is in reality, this kind of approach is something I like to see in photo reports on forums. Keep it going.

Belgrade looks fantastic! A bit rough around the edges, to be sure, but there is some really amazing architecture there - much better than I had initially expected! Thanks for the lovely photos and unique angles!

There are similarities of course, but Zagreb has a bigger older core, including the lower town and the medieval Gradec with the beautiful St Mark's Square and the surrounding streets.

So on my way to Skopje, capital city of Macedonia, with about 500.000 inhabitants. With long history, tragic past, beautiful bazaar, gigantic reconstruction project, the city is a must for everyone visiting the region.
Being part of the Byzantine Empire, from 972 to 992 the capital of the First Bulgarian Empire, tossed back and forth between the Serbs and Bulgarians, eventually becoming the capital of the Serbian Empire in 1346.
In 1392 it conquered by the Turks, giving way for 520 years of Ottoman domination, which still holds an influence on the city's architecture. The city got the name of Üsküb.
During the Albanian Revolt of 1912 the city was captured from the Turks. In 1912, the Kingdom of Serbia occupied Skopje, changing it's name to the Serbian Skoplje. After WWI it became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, halting the strong Bulgarian influences in the city.
During WWII, the city's Jewish population, numbering around 3000, was taken to Treblinka. The most talked about and (still!) visible problem of Skopje's recent history is the 1963 earthquake, which destroyed 80% of the buildings in the capital, giving way to socialist reconstruction, which does not do justice to the city. But a huge reconstruction program, called Skopje 2014 started, costing hundreds of millions of euros and having it's supporters and critics. Details about this later, here come the photos.....
