Belgrade by Night

Sorry, I guess the website doesn't allow direct-linking and it appears that I can't upload them straight to photobucket using the image URL. Maybe in a few days I'll have enough time to save and then upload all the pictures.

In the meantime, you can check it out at www.totallybelgrade.com

Or if possible, maybe someone could do it.

Those are nice pictures, but I really am getting alittle bored with the fact that all the pictures of Belgrade has "mostly" the same area. I've probably remembered how every little store and building looks like on Knez Mihailova street, and it's time for a change!
