Belgrade, Serbia

August 2016-Our trip up the Danube continued from Bulgaria and Romania to spend a day in Serbia.  Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, is at the juncture of two rivers, the Sava and the Danube.  Our time spent in Belgrade included a tour of the Belgrade Fortress, a quick bus tour of the core, and an afternoon to enjoy walking an area of the city, and then back to our boat. Our bus tour of the city of Belgrade emphasized the diverse history, with the influences of the surrounding countries, wars, politics and areas of cranes and rebuilding. Old and new visible at each turn.

We decided to spend our afternoon along the pedestrian street flanked with historic buildings, lunch at an outdoor café, a detour to find the synagogue, and then a walk back to the boat.  The area where the river boat was docked was complete with blocks of row houses, and warehouses.  Renovations were evident.  Perhaps next time we are in Belgrade the area will be alive with restaurants, shops coffee shops and people.
