Love couple looking kissing in Kalemegdan park. This is the first album I made with my first digital camera, without any experience in photography in October 2008.
It was a beautiful afternoon, warm and so quiet. Sun was going down and people were enjoying walking or resting and watching the river and New Belgrade across the river :)
New Belgrade sits across the Save River from Belgrade. It is a modern Socialist creation that is quickly changing.
Kalemegdan is a fortress and park in an urban area neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.
Kalemegdan is the most popular park among Belgraders and for many tourists visiting Belgrade because of the park’s numerous winding walking paths, shady benches, picturesque fountains, random statues, mammoth historical architecture and incredible river views (Sahat kula – The clock tower, Zindan kapija – Zindan gate, etc). Former canal which was used for city supplying in the Middle Ages is completely covered by earth but the idea of recreating it resurfaced in the early 2000s. Kalemegdan is known for its kilometers long lagums, underground corridors and catacombs, which are still largely unexplored. In the true sense, Kalemegdan is today the green oasis in the Belgrade’s urban area.
The name Belgrade (or Beograd, in Serbian), which, not just in Serbian but in most Slavic languages means a “white town” or a “white fortress”, was first mentioned in AD 878 by Bulgarians.
