Recent history comes to life

We spent a day in Belgrade prior to flying off to London. We enjoyed the walking streets of Belgrade and had a great time in the many outdoor cafes people watching and seeing some of the Olympics on TV.
We walked around and up the old fortress, stopping to crawl around the tanks and cannons they had collected from the war. We then set out to see a few of the buildings that still haven’t been repaired from the US bombings in the 90s. Locals told us that it has been left in its demolished state as a reminder of the recent war and what reparations the country should be owed. It was a numbing experience to stand in front of a building that looks like it could collapse at any moment, and were eventually told off by the guards who were not thrilled with us snapping a few pics.
