I met Vladimir through VT. I travel to Serbia to see my friends and Vladimir is a Serbian guy. On my visit to Serbia in October 2009 Vladimir suggested I try and get down to Kragujevac and meet for a beer. Luckily my friend Sasa had to go there for business so I was able to come along and finally meet another VT member. I would have liked to have spent more time there but I'm sure I'll be back in the future. It was actually a double VT first as I was the first VT member (other than Irena, Vladimir's partner) that Vladimir has met.
Two fleeting visits to Kragujevac have left me wanting to come back and explore the city properly. On my first visit in March 2009 I saw the memorial to the massacre in 1941 of around 7,000 people by the nazis as reprisals for German soldiers killed by Serbian forces. The monument, called broken wing, is a sombre reminder of the terror of naziism. Most of the victims were women and children.
Okay so it's not exactly in Kragujevac but around 20 kilometres away just off the main Belgrade highway heading north.... more travel advice
