Tagging along in Belgrade


On the heels of “The Australian” travel article about Belgrade, the New Zealand Herald published a similar one, titled Serbia: Tagging along to history. It’s a bit of a false lead; the article briefly describes political slogans around town, but not images. To rectify this, I’m posting one of the more predominant political stencils in town.

I’ve seen this stenciled throughout Belgrade. What I like best is that people have started “improving” the images with mustaches, shoes, or pink zombie-looking eyes. Oddly, no one has given him a wig. Or added his beloved tigers to the scene. Yet.

As for the article, it’s a bit lackluster. It’s as though the author was “tagging” along with bored friends while carrying an old Lonely Planet. But I’m glad to see/read about more people visiting Belgrade.
