    Belgrade

    After another early morning visit to the spa, I enjoyed a delicious breakfast - the best to date on this trip.

    Regrettably I only had a short time in Belgrade - Serbia’s capital, situated at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. I had visited the city before and had spent some time exploring it, so it was just a flying visit this time. Belgrade can initially impress as a rather forbidding city, but you can’t help but marvel at its great Soviet monoliths and art nouveau masterpieces. The hotel Mockba / Moskva / Moscow is an art nouveau icon dating from 1908. It was formerly the Rossiya Palace, and acted as the Gestapo headquarters during World War 2. Its famous residents have included Alfred Hitchcock, Albert Einstein, Novak Djokovic, Frank Sinatra, Tom Hanks, Alain Delon, Audrey Hepburn and Robert Fyfe.

    I enjoyed a morning walk around Belgrade centre, taking in Republic Square, the Serbian Parliament and Topcider Gardens. I then made my way to the Nikola Tesla airport to catch the Air Serbia flight to my next destination - Skopje, North Macedonia.
