Serbia

May 31, 2011

Belgrade was the capital of the former Yugoslavia and is 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, yet everyone was quite polite and proper.

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

In the ethno village of Sirogojno in the rural hills near Zlatibor.
