I arrived in Belgrade (Beograd) at night. It greeted me in Cyrillic and said goodbye in Cyrillic. It's really hot. Luckily the streets are filled with fountains and women selling ice cream every few meters. Knez Mihaiolova Boulevard is the heart of Belgrade. It is the most bohemian and romantic of the city. Here came together in the nineteenth century figures of intellectual and cultural scene. Today with street musicians, mimes and fortune tellers. Nearby, on a street that bears his name, is the home of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Ivo Andric. There is no shortage of local fashion and the famous taverns (kafanes) to sample the Balkan drink par excellence: The rakia.
