There really isn’t that much new in Tom Flanigan’s recent travel journal entry about Belgrade. Flanigan covers some of the more well-known attractions of Belgrade, its people, and atmosphere. But what’s interesting is to see that Belgrade has actually turned into one of his favorite cities so far. Oh, one other thing? Mr. Flanigan left the U.S. the 8th of July 2009, and visited so far Reykjavik, Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn, Birmingham, London, Edinburgh, Prague, Berlin, Tirana, Skopje, Sofia, Brasov, Timisoara.
Belgrade. What Else? Well, sorta:
“Belgrade is a very nice city, one of my favorite cities so far. During the day it is a little grey, but at night it is filled with lights and crowds of strolling, happy people. The atmosphere is very pleasant,
relaxed, and good humored. Shops stay open late and musicians play in the streets. The city center is filled with lots of very excellent book-shops (many with an excellent selection of english books), which
definitely impresses me. I mean, here I am in Serbia and some of these bookshops have better and more interesting books in English than lots of bookshops in English speaking countries.”
