Belgrade (Beograd), capital of Serbia. It lies at the confluence of Sava and Danube rivers and is home to around 1.2 million people. Infamous from the recent history, the acting figures that started the wars over the territory of ex Yugoslavia, it has become a popular tourist destination now.

Let me end this post at Skadarlija, a pedestrian-only street, full of bars and restaurants with live music.

The prices are cheap, the food is excellent (Serbs ARE BBQ champions of the world!) and the alcohol strong!
