Last sunday I went for a short walk near our two rivers. It was windy and not so warm and I didn`t have anything better to do 😀
It is not so visible but waves were a bit too big to go to other side by boat but some people even dared to sail. Danube is important river in this part of Europe and there is considerable traffic on it, big boats transporting sand, coal, iron, oil….. It needed a good skill to manouver with such strong and upredictable wind.
One of my favourite spots for looking at Kalemegdan is right here.
A sculpture of Pobednik (Victor) quietly observing from a fortress toward flatlands of Srem and Vojvodina.
This, probably the most important symbol of Belgrade, was made after the WWI to commemorate the defeat of Austro-Hungarian Empire by the Kingdom of Serbia in the battle of mountain Cer in August 16-19, 1914. The most famous work of Croatian sculptorist Ivan Meštrović was supposed to be placed in centre of Belgrade, but its nudity "hurt" the puritan eyes of people of that times. So he ended up in probably the best place in a whole fortress 😀
Another view from the place where I was. This time in b/w.
Church is Saborna crkva, The Cathedral Church of St. Michael the Archangel made in 1840. by order of prince Miloš Obrenović, according to the design and plans of Adam Fridrih Kverfeld, a builder from Pančevo, a nearby town. Last year I`ve made a post about this part of Belgrade, Kosančićev venac.
I felt somehow lonesome at a moment but everything faded in a spring sun. It was a nice day. And a long walk 🙂
