Terazije were heavily bombed in 1941 by Germans, so I guess although that building wasn't directly hit by bombs, bomb clusters made those holes on the facade. It means that the facade wasn't revitalizated since the WW2 ( almost 70 years ).

I think it's a sphynx, not an angel ( although it has a normal body). And the old man is pushing a rock on a top of a hill ( Sisyphus? )

Thank you. I suppose it could also be from the street fighting in October 1944. I remember seeing a whole bunch of old pre-war buildings in Zemun that have been pockmarked from the aerial bombing in WWII. Nothing new really in this corner of Europe.

Are the renovations and repaintings of the buildings still continuing during the economic downturn?

Amazing pictures, as usual.

I e-mailed the link to this thread to a professor of mine who teaches Cultural Geography. He's traveled all around the world but has never been to Belgrade...and he told me that the thread convinced him to visit

Thank you. Nice to hear that.

Belgrade is with all its good and bad sides a big cultural mix.

Something different now

One part of New Belgrade
Blocks 61-62-63 seen from Bezanijska Kosa ( this lonely 18th century church is almost everything left from Bezanija village )

[IMG]http://i39.************/dmwx20.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i41.************/30mlkc9.jpg[/IMG]

yeah I know it looks scary

[IMG]http://i44.************/29kyux4.jpg[/IMG]

these weren't left with beton brut facade

[IMG]http://i43.************/2w3dvdt.jpg[/IMG]

ok, maybe you prefer these ones, it's block 70

[IMG]http://i39.************/2jfai69.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i40.************/kb2ebl.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i40.************/2nanyw4.jpg[/IMG]

this one was taken during a boat ride across sava to the ada Ciganlija island

[IMG]http://i44.************/2cmp36p.jpg[/IMG]

on the other riverside, across you can see the block 70a

[IMG]http://i39.************/25r2jxe.jpg[/IMG]

and the "toplana" ( heat plant, makes us warm during the winter)

[IMG]http://i44.************/dvn7l4.jpg[/IMG]

some other commies and the Usce tower behind the greenery
