Being a tourist: part 1

So…Some time ago I saw on Anna’s blog, Door sixteen, her post Let’s pretend we’re tourists, made up of pictures she was taking while walking through New York streets, pretending she’s, well, a tourist :). Today, inspired by the lovely Anna I decided to do the same – be a tourist! And it wasn’t that hard, after all I moved to Belgrade nine months ago and there are moments when I do feel a real tourist! So, I took my camera and to downtown I went! Please join me in my trip all the way to Europe, to a beautiful country called Serbia and its capital, Belgrade!


a pretty chalkboard sign outside a restaurant. the last line says ‘Welcome!’


National History Museum


Republic square – Trg Republike


a kind of flea market, only with books


this was one of the main streets of Belgrade 500 years ago! it’s so narrow, can you believe that?


proof about how old are those streets – vintage picture and check out the street sign


that’s me, being a tourist! :)


and my handsome husband, being my guide :)


as I said, Serbians are very creative people!


aren’t these paintings so beautiful?


this little guy gave me a handshake too. he was nice, although all the kids were scared of him :)

I really hope you enjoyed this little journey! I definitely liked being a tourist and I guess more similar posts will follow! xoxo

    I really like this post — and getting a small taste of Belgrade. I wish we had book fleas in Chicago!

    Actually, we have several of those book flea ‘markets’, and they are usually on the street’s sidewalks. The biggest is at the Vuk’s square. Next time, check that out. And that picture you took on Dorcol where you can see Alkatraz graffiti, next time come nearer so people can see hooligan street art ^_^

    Nice blog post, really good. I liked it. From where did you come to Belgrade?

    Katarina, yes it’s that street, because I especially went there with my husband to know where to go when I’ll meet you :)
