Belgrade, Serbia (07)

Here is a great card and a great addition to my map card collection from dear Ana in Belgrade...

Here you can see Kalemegdan, which is one of the MUST-TO-VISIT places, if the road windings ever take you to Belgrade.
When i visited Belgrade last year, even though i stayed there for less than a day, i did manage to visit Kalemegdan. Maybe it was freezing cold, but im more than thankful to my uncle and cousin for taking me there...i had been there at my previous Belgrade visits, but for some reason, i dont recall details about it, and my memory just feels blur...
The view from there is just magnificent and its one of those moments where if you dont feel freezing as i did, you will definitely feel your peace of mind if you just free yourself.
What i really liked about it is that there were many young people there, on a Saturday night...i dont know if there is the same trend as it is with young people here who gather at such open places though...another thing i liked, was that there was an open exhibition...there were like 20 or so standing bilboards (well, if you cant get a picture of what im talking about, then dont worry...its actually me who has no idea what they were or how we call them here in the first place...and i even dared to translate it into English :))
Anyway, each of those bilboards, had 3 photographs portrayed and they were just great. I dont recall the name of the photographer, even though while i was there i PROMISED myself i will remember it and i will look up information once i come back home...but he had shown photographs coming from different parts of the country, mainly nature, but also some events...the nature photographs were simply amazing! Mountains, rivers, lakes of Serbia, thru the lens of this photographer, from great angles and points...I was in Belgrade the 25th October, 2008...if anyone knows who had an exhibition then, PLEASE let me know...
And i really liked the idea...an exhibition in the open air...for free...we have that here as well i guess...just that, first of all, im far from informed about it and there is something weird here about people and their concept of art...you should see the latest 'artistic' sculptures that appeared in the centre of the town...or i dont know...maybe its just me who doesnt get it...
