I love the sights around Kalemegdan.
It is the center of events in Belgrade, from Beerfest to medieval style
parades. But even on a 'normal' visit, there are so many beautiful things
to look at. Starting from the south end, nearest the downtown, the spire
of the King Peter Cathedral, home of the Serbian Orthodox Patriarch, hangs
in the skies.
As you walk through the grounds, the ivy
covered walls and ancient ruins that dot the location serve as a reminder
of just how long this city has been here, and how often it has been fought
over. The bustling barges in the Sava River demonstrate too how central
a route to Europe these waterways are.
