The view from our balcony!
Scenes from the pedestrian mall:
The photo below was of the top a building near the square. I had to use the zoom lens to get the shot as it was so far away.
The 'broken' countdown clock:
The National Theater:
Bajrakli Mosque and the Sheikh Mustafa Tomb in Dorcol:
Jovana mentioned that there are 30 letters and, more importantly, only 30 sounds in the Cyrillic alphabet which originated in Bulgaria and is the script used in Serbia. Think how English would be if there were only one sound associated with each letter!
Jovana explained what a great strategic location Belgrade is compared to so many other cities in Europe. There were 114 battles (remember that number for later!) waged in the city and the city was completely destroyed 44 times. I cannot begin to fathom rebuilding so many times after so much destruction.
Entering the Austrian Gate (I think) of the Fortress:

Now the presence of the limo made sense!
Wish I knew the meaning of this sculpture we saw in the park.
Still more of the Fortress walls:
Our first view of Ruzica Church was the spire peeking out over the walls:
