Shawn & Tricia Mitchell have visited destinations in more than 47 countries on 5 continents and they recently visited Belgrade.
Tricia Mitchell put up a great blog post with amazing photos – Belgrade. It’s an old city with a new vibe. And her husband made a video to share the story of their experience in Belgrade, from Kalemegdan fortress, Nikola Tesla museum, the House of Flowers, Saint Sava cathedral, to delicious Serbian food and wine. Shawn P. Mitchell wrote on Facebook and Youtube:
On a recent visit to Belgrade, Serbia, my wife and I had a chance to experience the tourism offerings of this capital city. Situated at the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers on the Balkan Peninsula, Belgrade is emerging from the turmoil of the late 1990s and early 2000s as a regional center of commercial activity.
The hospitality we received in Belgrade was outstanding, as was the wine, thus ensuring that we will be returning the city again soon.
In the attached video, I share the story of our experience in Belgrade and some of the reasons why this city is well-positioned to be a thriving tourist destination in the years ahead.
Great video. Thank you Shawn. And thank you Tricia for your great article with amazing photos of Belgrade. More tourists from all over the world, and more American people like you, should come to visit Belgrade to disvover and share the truth: Belgrade is an amazing European capital!
I came across this fantastic video showing what makes Belgrade a fantastic city to live in and to visit – its history, architecture, food… and its people. Well, explore Belgrade, and discover the unexpected with Tamara and Mia who guide you on a tour through the streets of Belgrade:
Belgrade is the city I am living in for more than 4 years. Let me tell you something, Belgrade is not what most people think, a dangerous city, but to the contrary, a beautiful city and a safer place to live in than in any other European capitals.
My favorite place in the world is Kalemegdan park and fortress. Kalemegdan is an oasis in the city center of Belgrade. Watch this fantastic video made by Pedja Nikolic, a Serb living in London, showing the beauty of Kalemegdan.
In which city can you see a gigantic rabbit? In Belgrade, the capital of the Republic of Serbia. Photo taken two days ago.
Kneza Miloša, one of the most beautiful streets of Belgrade.
Marko Pajic and Matija Rodic are doing a fantastic job helping people on the streets of Belgrade. Bravo!
Jonathan Manikas, an American man, uploaded yesterday to Youtube a poignant video where he apologizes to Serbian people for the bombing of Serbia in 1999. He wrote:
On top of the 2,500 Serbian civilians murdered by U.S.-led NATO, the targeted bombing of civilian infrastructure (such as electricity & water supplies, and communication systems) is a war crime under international law as well.
The bombing was more about geopolitics, with the Pentagon’s intention to extend NATO’s borders to gain military & economic influence at the front door of Russia, than it was about a “humanitarian mission” (obviously).
I’m so sorry what I as an American did to your nation.
Well, watch his video:
Nice video showing my city, Belgrade. 5 years ago, when I told my French friends that I was moving there with my young daughter, they told me I was crazy, and that there was still war there, and that Serbs were monsters.
Let me told you something. It’s not true at all. Serbian people are the most friendly people I have ever met, and Serbia is a wonderful country, and Belgrade a vibrant city, more safe than any European Capitals. I will stay forever here in Serbia, and I hope more people will come to see that Serbia, and Belgrade is not what you think it is. Well, watch this video of my city:
Marko Mamula, a young American man from Boston, was recently in Belgrade. He made a great video of Belgrade. Yes, this is Belgrade, Serbia:
