Belgrade Fortress - SERBIA
This is only my second card from Serbia, one of the countries that was formed after the disaggregation of Yugoslavia and a place I really want to visit one day (I loved Slovenia and Croatia, I'm looking forward to travel to the other former Yugoslavian republics). This card shows one of the main doors of the Belgrade Fortress (build in the 3rd century BC) - along with Kalemegdan Park it's a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance since 1979 (hello UNESCO... what are you waiting for?) Thank you very much Ratka and let me welcome you to Postcrossing, your new addiction. This postcards took 4 days to arrive!
Kalemegdan Park is the largest park and the most important historical monument in Belgrade. It is located on a 125-metre-high cliff, at the junction of the River Sava and the Danube. The Kalemegdan Park, split in two as the Large and Little parks, was developed in the area that once was the town field. It provides places of rest and entertainment. The Belgrade Fortress and the Kalemegdan Park together represent a cultural monument of exceptional importance, the area where various sport, cultural and arts events take place, for all generations of Belgraders and numerous visitors of the city.
