Welcome to Belgrade , the capital of Serbia (or whatever we call this place these days…)
It is always hard to talk about the city that you are born in, because it's hard not to be bias... Of course I love Belgrade but it's not easy to explain why. So, I'll try with a dangerous theory that goes like this: cities are like girls :) Like, you know when you see a beautiful girl that attracts you immediately with her looks, but when you start talking with her, you realize there's nothing else to support that beauty.
On the other hand, you have girls that are not that attractive but in time you learn that they are witty and smart with a great sense of humor and very interesting to spend time with. Well, that's Belgrade for you...
When you see it, at the first glance you are not impressed but once you get to feel it and meet all the right people, you will get to love it!
So, to cut long story short: if you are coming to see great monumental buildings resembling the ones you can see, say, in Barcelona or Paris or Rome, don’t get your hopes up because you won’t find it here. But, what you will find is good night life, lots of different ways to relax and unwind, lots of friends, nice cafés and strolling lanes on the riverbanks, and last but not least good food. Don’t get me wrong, but I haven’t met a single foreigner who left without gaining some weight :)
