14 Hours in Belgrade

Just 14 hours are not very much for exploring Belgrade. However, I did not have more time as my night train from Vienna did not arrive until after 8.00 a.m., and my next night train (to Montenegro) already left at 10.10 p.m. Still, I had enough time to get a first impression of the city.

In the morning, I took a stroll over Knez Mihailova, the main shopping street, to Kalemegdan, the fortress at the confluence of Danube and Sava. Then, I had lunch in the (rather touristy) area of Skadarlija.

In the afternoon, I continued my stroll towards the south of the city, where I passed (among others) the Serbian parliament, Tašmajdan Park (where a monument remembers the children killed in the NATO bombardment 1999), and the church Sveti Save.

In the late afternoon, I joined seemingly half Belgrade in having a break in one of the cafés on Knez Mihailova.
