Hey Everyone! Hope you're well! I'm still enjoying the super hot weather in Serbia, and thought I would share some pictures for you all :)
Both sides of my family live in Belgrade which is the Capital and that's where we usually stay. In the city there's a massive high street called 'Knez Mihajlova' where it's full of shops and cafes etc. All the major buildings are pretty much there too and there's loads of cool architecture.
|Kalemegdan (Belgrade Fortress, Usce)|
Kalemegdan is the old fortress of Belgrade and it's really nice to walk around especially in the evening when the weather's a bit cooler. You can see parts of the old town and there's a park surrounding it. I wouldn't advise heels as it's cobbled haha!
Skadarlija is nice to visit in the evening for a drink or some dinner. It's a cute litle Bohemian area where poets and artists lived and visited back in the day. It's a little cobbled area packed with mainly traditional cafes and restaurants and you're surrounded by live music. The bands will usually go round each table individually and play violins etc just for you :)
Serbia is a mainland country so it isn't close to the sea but there are plenty of lakes and rivers where people go to swim and sunbathe. I think a famous one is Srebrno Jezero (Silver Lake) but we usually always go to Ada Ciganlia which is a lake in Belgrade and it's packed with cafes and clubs so you can visit day and night :) There are also loads of big outdoor swimming pools where everyone goes during the day for swimming and sunbathing :)

And then here are some photos from the outskirts of Belgrade where there are loads of mountains and greenery. Serbia is also well known for all of their monasteries scattered around the country :)
So that's a little bit about Belgrade and pretty much what I do when I visit haha! I stay with family and catch up with them, go swimming and sunbathing at the pools or lakes and then in the evening go for a walk in town or around the lakes :)
Thanks Boz Krstic (dad) for the photos :)
