A Sunny Day in Belgrade

[24 April 2012] A coach tour of Belgrade took us past many of its most well known buildings . . while our guide told us what we needed to know about each. Then there was time to stroll the pedestrian shopping precinct and window shop - before we moved on to visit the Fortress of Belgrade. This gave us a pleasant walk through the park that surrounds it, as well as a wide view over the city and the place where the Sava River joins the Danube while the sunshine helped us to enjoy our visit to Serbia's capital city.
