The variety of architectural styles is stunning. Loved the photo of the caryatids, by the way...
brilliantly shot.

Thanks everyone! Your comments are very kind

Some pictures from Summer 2005.


The Serbian National Museum has one of the most valuable collections of European medieval, baroque and impressionist art. It's a shame the museum has been closed for over 6 years due to deteriorating conditions; but fret not art lovers! The world's sixth largest collection of art will open in 2011 with impressive renovations!


Belgrade's large native African population holds a African bazaar every Saturday in the summer on Cika Ljubina Street by the museum


The Victor stands proudly above the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, one of the most impressive promonotories in Europe


From the Sava river old Belgrade rises on hills. My grandpa would always joke that Serbs were afraid of the water and never took advantage of Belgrade's spectacular natural location, instead building on top of hills


Architectural variety as a whole smorgesbord of styles rises up to Vrachar hill


This tower is named 'Beogradjanka' or 'Belgrade Lady' it rises majestically in the heart of older Belgrade, I colloquially call it the TD Centre


The oldest part of Belgrade still awaits some much needed facelifts


This very small alleyway has one of the strangest names I've ever encountered something along the lines of 'The Black Dragon'.. Quite strange


The Central part of Kalemegdan Park is a lovely place for romantic dates, and if you're retired, lovely walks

I spent a night in Belgrade back in September .... it's a city that makes a God-awful first impression, but it recovers very quickly.

I got off the train, and my first instinct was to turn around and get back on. The stench of car fumes and the thick smog that enveloped the city were almost too much for me. I had booked two nights at a hostel down the street from the train station, but I never found the place. So I checked in at the hostel right across the street from the train station (so I could make an early exit in the morning). Walking around for a couple of hours looking for my hostel had made me thirsty, so the first thing I did was pour myself a glass of water. It was brown. Lovely.

I had just come from Zagreb, and I hadn't switched my money over from kunas to dinars, so the first thing I did was find an exchange place (it was evening, and all the banks were closed. Imagine my surprise when I was told that I couldn't exchange money from a neighbouring country! That said, I didn't eat that night.

I wandered around town with my camera for the evening, and happened across the pedestrian zone ... I was shocked by how much activity there was on a Monday night. All the cafés were full, the area was bustling, and holy crap were the women ever hot. I had a ball exploring the city that night, and it more than made up for my initial experience.

@ louweed

great photos!!

I also agree with you about the high pollution at the area around the railway station ("savski trg" or "sava square").. that location is full of trucks,buses,taxies..also the train and bus station are there.. I slept one night in one of the buildings around "sava square" and..didn' t sleep well

"knez mihajlova" is a very special place..always full with good girls

More pictures from Summer 2005, again thanks for the comments, I'm glad Belgrade is enjoying a more positive light than stereotypes allow.



Student's Square with a monument to Dositej Obradovic, one of the fathers of modern Serbian culture. In the back rises the faculty of philology at the University of Belgrade


One of the small perpendicular streets to Prince Michael's where some of the most beautiful examples of classical Belgrade are found


Cika Ljubina Street goes from Prince Michael's to Republic Square, the BOSS flagship for Belgrade is also at the corner


Details of roofs on Prince Michael Street (Knez Mihailova in Serbian)


Dusk on the pedestrian avenue as Belgrade's youth prepare for a night of fun


A long way down along King Milan Street, the wires are a nuissance but are necessary for the trolleys running down the street


Looking down Kosovska Street as St. Mark's rises in the typical Serbian-byzantine style


Cyrill and Methodius Park is located on King Aleksandar Boulevard


Monument to Vuk Karadzic, reformer of the modern Serbian language and one of the fathers of Serbian culture. Under his monument lies the Vukov Spomenik underground railway station (kind of like a Belgrade RER, or GO Train)


A Neoclassical palace, the faculty of technology at the University of Belgrade


King Milan Street with the Beogradjanka and the Yugoslav Dramatic Theater


A park between the old and new palace. The building shown is the Presidential Palace of Serbia
