How Was My Stay in Belgrade?

How Was My Stay in Belgrade?

So, how did my stay in Belgrade go? It's time to have a look at my six months in Serbia last year. I arrived to Belgrade at the beginning of July 2020 and left at the beginning of January this year. I went there for several reasons. First of all, I did some major dental work. For that, Serbia is really the best place. You can get the best dental treatment at a very affordable price, much cheaper than in ...

Is Serbian Food Healthy?

Is Serbian food healthy? I will try to answer this question, although it will be my personal view, based on my recent experience. I was in Serbia, in Belgrade, for six months last year. That was the first time in 30 years for me stay there for longer than two weeks, as I live in London. But such short periods of time can't really give us a proper insight into nutritional habits of a place that we are ...

National Museum Šabac

I was not sure whether to write this post about National Museum Sabac. I already know that not many people will read it. It's a small, niche museum and also there are more famous museums in Serbia, with bigger collections. In the end, I decided to do it for two reasons. First of all, for myself. In the future, whenever I want to refresh my memory about this place, I'll simply come back to this post. ...

Šabac

After Smederevo, I decided to go west of Belgrade, to Šabac. But let me first explain how to correctly pronounce the name of this city. Š is a letter for the sound sh in English language, as in shoe. Also, the last letter c in Serbian is pronounced ts, as in tsar. Serbian is very easy to read, every letter depicts a distinct sound, the language is fully phonetic. You don't need to learn how to spell Serbian ...
Smederevo Fortress – Last Serbian Medieval Capital City

Smederevo Fortress – Last Serbian Medieval Capital City

I went to Smederevo to see the magnificent Smederevo Fortress. Of course, I also wanted to visit a city that I've never seen before. However, it's really the fortress that stands out as the most important historic site, especially as there isn't really much else to see there. But let me set the stage for this post, to put the fortress in its proper historical context. I think that the fortress is probably ...

“Migration of the Serbs” in National Museum Pančevo

In addition to seeing a place that I've never seen before, one more reason why I went to Pancevo was to see "Migration of the Serbs" - the iconic painting by Paja Jovanović. I found out about it in a museum in Zrenjanin. There was a copy there, but there was also a note stating that the original was in the National Museum Pancevo. Paja Jovanović is one of my favourite Serbian painters. I've written ...

Pančevo

After Zrenjanin, I decided to go to Pancevo. In reality, it's really Pančevo, but there is no a letter č in English alphabet, so all English language websites refer to it as Pancevo. I'll do the same. In Serbian, the letter č is for the sound ch in English, as in chair. Every Serb will look at Pancevo and will read it correctly. So, this short explanation is for foreign readers, to know how to correctly ...

Zrenjanin

After Novi Sad and Sremski Karlovci, I went to Zrenjanin. I could've easily done these three places at the same time. They are all in Vojvodina, close to each other and also close to Belgrade. Zrenjanin is approximately 55km from Novi Sad. But, as I'm in Serbia for a longer period of time, I decided to take it easy and to do one excursion per week. Travelling in Serbia is cheap. There are regular ...

Crypt of Saint Sava Church – Belgrade

I've been in Belgrade for just over two months now. In one of my previous posts, I wrote about many restoration projects that the city authorities are currently doing in order to improve the way the city looks. But, the biggest and the most ambitious building project is the Saint Sava Church. You can read about this church in my article on Belgrade. The church is finished on the outside and they are now ...

Zemun

I shouldn't really write a separate post about Zemun. That's because Zemun is a municipality of Belgrade. But, Zemun has been part of Belgrade for only 86 years. For many past centuries, it was a completely separate city. The main reason why I decided to write a separate post is because, when you go to Zemun, it feels like being in a completely different place. The last time I was there it was over 30 ...
