  1. This is one wonderful city in the heart of the Balkans. I had some prejudices before I had my first trip but as I landed in Serbia I was simply overwhelmed by generosity and openness of the Serbs. Belgrade itself in full of contrasts. On the one side you can find modern 21st century buildings, just a corner below there is enormous medieval fortress. Accommodation was fair enough but recently I rent private apartments just outside of downtown. It is less expensive and offers good amount of comfort (fyi it is website). Food is ok, but for my taste a little bit strong. Looking forward going in Belgrade, Serbia again
