As usual it's been quite a while since I've posted in this thread. I decided to take a look at Belgrade, Serbia.

First off some pics of the CBD:












Some residential:





Nice building on the right:



But the security cameras and gates make me wonder.



I thought Bob Dole ran for President in '96




A little bit of grit:









Found a huge cemetery in a residential area:



One of the many entrances (not the flower stands)



I couldn't figure out what the thing was over the gates?




The two biggest football (soccer) clubs in Serbia, and bitter rivals; Red Star and Partizan



A great old train station. The first pic is from 2013



Then a few yards away the pic changed to 2014



I was curious about the big billboard in front:



I checked out the site listed, and WOW.....impressive:

Sadly the train station is going:

Not everyone is happy about the new waterfront:

Here is the area (note the train sheds toward the bottom right):



Hope you enjoyed.
