|I quite enjoy stereotyping.|
|Oh those Serbs and their sense of humour|
And some that were bombed by NATO are still there! Got stared at by everyone on passing trams for taking pictures though - TOURISTS!
The citadel is still there too, but how much of it is actually modern concrete to make it look good is debatable. Nice view of the city from the tower, and for 30 dinars I'm not complaining. And I got an ice cream cone with alcohol in it, because this is Serbia and anything goes.
It was really warm outside, which was naturally t-shirts and shorts weather. Except for the fact that this made us look like massive tourists, because for some reason the Serbs were all in jeans and thick jackets, as if 20 degrees was a record low temperature or something. Genuinely saw someone in a scarf too, but I'm too British to say anything about it.
|The North: because those Serbs do irony.|
|View's not that bad I suppose...|
And beer is cheap. As is rakija, the local plum brandy, which is actually fairly lethal. But I managed to blag far too many free shots of it while I was there. We ended up in the 'dungeon' of the hostel bar (because apparently people like to sleep at 2am?!) talking to some Serbs who were convinced that Novak Djokovic was going to come back from living in Monaco and become President.
|This photo seemed appropriate. And was actually taken in Belgrade.|
|This is Belgrade's 'old town'. So maybe a night-time sightseeing tour is better.|
|Zemun: recommended by Anselm. Not that that means anything in the grand scheme of things.|
|Stop judging me for taking pictures of my beer|
So we tried the next place along instead, which was fairly heaving. They let the girls in, but us blokes had to wait for excessive amounts of time while the bouncers perved on the various women inside. But that's just this part of the world for you.
I had a great time in Belgrade, and a lot of that was because of the atmosphere in the hostel - if you're ever there, stay in the Green Studio, I highly recommend it!
|Anywhere with the Danube running through can't be that bad.|
