Florina Mocanu, an amateur urban photographer from Romania, spent recently only one night in Belgrade. Only one night, but she was unexpectedly charmed by the city of Belgrade:
My experience in Belgrade was unexpected: the city was unexpectedly beautiful, the people were unexpectedly hospitable, the weather was unexpectedly cold and the alcohol (rakia) was unexpectedly strong… The city is full of life, with people on the streets at every hour of the night and you will feel safe because of that.

Marius and Joan, a British couple travelling around Europe in a motorhome, recently spent a few days in the Capital of Serbia, Belgrade. Marius and Joan founded Belgrade to be “a city full of life and sights to see“. In particular, they enjoyed Serbian food and Serbian hospitality:
We have not been to Serbia before, and because of the Balkan conflict after the break up of Yugoslavia, it has not always received a good press. How time can change things, because since our arrival a few days ago we have seen only good hospitality and service with a smile. Serbia is open for tourism!
Well, read the full story of Marius and Joan in Belgrade (with also some good pictures showing Belgrade). And yes, Serbia is open for tourism!

A young American woman, Katie, is currently working as a teacher in the English Department at Athens College Elementary School (Greece) with grades 1-6. Last month she went to Belgrade for a weekend, and wrote today a blog post talking about her trip to Belgrade. She liked Belgrade, its architecture, food, and people:
A few of us decided to go to Belgrade for a weekend. Although I was a little sick, it was the best decision ever. Belgrade is a super cool city and totally underrated (in my opinion). I felt like the city was such a mix of a million things; there were many beautiful old buildings, but there were also mid century buildings that looked rigid and standardized. There is so much that no one really knows about Serbia and I think the city is transitioning a bunch while still embracing its past… Also, everyone was so friendly. Within an hour of arriving, a man helped us figure out the bus tickets, a taxi driver suggested we walk since where we were going was super close and he didn’t want to rip us off, and a woman went out of her way to walk us to where we wanted to go. THE BEST CITY.
Well, don’t just read this quote, read Katie’s blog post in full. Her photos of Belgrade are also really great). Yes, Belgrade is awesome! It’s nothing like what you hear on American tv.
