Belgrade is the capital of the former Yugoslavia and now the capital of Serbia. US and NATO bombing of Serbia to halt its actions in Bosnia in 1995
and in Kosovo in 1999 does not make the US very popular in Serbia, yet amazingly everyone without exception was quite polite and proper.

The huge new Serbian Orthodox cathedral, similar in
size and style to the famous Hagia Sofia in Istanbul.

In the ethno village of Sirogojno in the rural hills near Zlatibor.
(With guide Sasha and tourist Mauricio)
