The first day I visited the most beautiful and biggest park in Belgrade, which is also the most important cultural and historical complex, in which the Belgrade Fortress stands high above the Sava and Danube confluence. The name Kalemegdan applies only to the spacious plateau surrounding the Fortress, which was turned into a park in the eighties of the XIX century. Apart from its rich history, the park today is one of the main spots for Belgrade residents to take a walk, ride their bikes or sell their handmade art pieces. When you walk up the Fortress, you get the view of the entire city that is really beautiful and magical and I took so many pictures (as usual).
In that park there was also the Belgrade Zoo and of course I convinced my friends to send me in there and get a tour all around. It was very important to me to visit the zoo because I believe that through that you can draw a lot of conclusions about the people through the way they treat animals. I was really surprised that the zoo was full of people, mostly little kids with their parents and they were being so gentle and loving to the animals, which I believe, is a very positive thing. Even though I am against keeping animals in captivity and I don’t support zoos, some of the animals were living really good and were given special care. It was sad seeing them behind bars but for a Balkan country, that zoo was very well maintained and every animal there carried a story that was told to the visitors.
The day followed with long walks around the city and by the end of the day we were so tired but a fine dinner with lots of wine was just what we needed to re-gain the energy for the next day, which was even more interesting, and you will find out why in the next post. Until then, enjoy these beautiful pictures and your beautiful lives ☺
