I made this photo in a Belgrade Zoo in June 2009. There were lot of peacocks with crazy colors, but I noticed only two of white ones. They were so proud, elegant and I just fell in love with them :). I hope you will fall in love with them too ;)
Situated at the very center of the city, the Belgrade Zoo, or the Good Hope Garden, stands on one of the most attractive city locations – the Kalemegdan park. It was founded in 1936 and it is one of the oldest homes of animal kingdom in Europe.
It covers an area of 6 ha, and has 2,000 animals of 200 species, and beside wild animals it abounds in domestic animals too. Its present beautiful look is contributed by many built facilities, infrastructure, new drinking-fountains and fountains, Wooden Sculpture Gallery, the work of the sculptor Vuk Bojovic’, nursery for young animals – Baby Zoo… For its 60th anniversary it was enriched with a monument dedicated to its once most interesting and most famous resident – Sammy the chimpanzee, the first of its kind ever in this Zoo.
Not a week passes in this zoo without the media present, to record birth of a cub, various promotions… So this zoo became present almost daily in the life of Belgrade, enriching it with spirit of its gentle atmosphere, not without reason named the Good Hope Garden.
