I’ve got to see a man about a horse…

Our guests leave today, but we won’t be a twosome for long-Muz’s sister is arriving in Belgrade an hour after our current guests fly home. We’ll have a steady stream of guests over the next few weeks to soak in the Serbian sunshine.

The first thing I do is walk guests to Republic Square, up Knez Mihailova, and to Kalemegdan. It’s a nice way to reset jet-lagged minds, offer caffeine, and introduce people to a lovely city. And if that doesn’t wake them up, looking at military equipment usually does the trick. I’ll be making this trip quite a few times, but I never tire of it.

It’s exciting to show people “my” city, to see it through their eyes, and learn something new in return. I knew Serbians loved children, but traveling with an adorable three-year old really brought it home. I had forgotten how strong rakija seems when you don’t drink it on a regular basis. And I took the great coffee here for granted. I’m looking forward to new (re)discoveries as the weeks go by. So, any suggestions for things to show visitors in Serbia?

  1. Kula Nebojša is being opened today. If the skies are clear, a visit to Avala tower could be spot on. Stay clear from too many (scientific name here) trees – they release some heavy pollen and such stuff – causes allergies. Visit mountains.

  2. Awesome suggestions, as usual. Her flight was late but maybe we can go to Avala or Ada tomorrow. And you also explained why my allergies are so crazy right now. It’s worth it for all this great weather, though.
