“Undoubtedly the most popular Serbian of the last century, Nikola Tesla’s life is covered in this small museum in Vračar. A short video gives a strong overview of the great man, before visitors get the chance to interact with some of his most famous inventions. The rest of the museum is given over to a Tesla-centric exhibition. If you are in any way curious about the life of the Electric Jesus, be sure to make a beeline for the Nikola Tesla Museum.”
“Churches in the Balkans don’t come much more monolithic than this. That is a descriptor and a fact, as the Church of St Sava is the largest in the region and one of the biggest Orthodox cathedrals on the planet. Built on the spot where the eponymous saint’s remains were supposedly burned to dust in 1594, work on the church began in the late 19th century and continues to this day. That work was understandably interrupted by World War II, before Tito and the socialists decided it would make a good place for a car park. It wasn’t until 1985 that work on what many assumed was an old castle continued. The interior is still under construction, but that adds a certain humanity to this most impressive of spiritual buildings.”
“Artificial lake designed in recent decades by city government to provide Belgraders a peace of nature and leisure during weekends or any other days off. ”
“Belgrade’s Bohemian Quarter isn’t entirely Bohemian and constitutes more of a street than a quarter, but that doesn’t make it any less essential when visiting the Serbian capital. A cobblestoned thoroughfare lined by restaurants, bars and artisanal stores from top to bottom, it has come a long way from being where those the city deemed undesirable were forced to live in the 19th century. The early 20th century saw the writers, artists and drunks of the city move in, filling the kafanas with intense creative thought and emptying the cellars of whatever booze was available. The artists have now been replaced with tourists, but the street remains one of the most energetic spots of this most energetic city.”
