Belgrade last summer 2011part 1.

Before I started bloging 2011 I went to Belgrade, and since I won't be able to blog in few days I thought to share some photos. As you probably will notice I was much thinner. Have to get back to that weight. Just don't feel as happy now.
First day was pretty much just shopping in the city centre.
I wore this hat everyday, I think it is from Lindex, not sure though.
The jupsuit from H&M and the shoes from DinSko.  In the background one of Serbian kings.

We ate almost everymeal at the restaurant I recommended earlier: Russian Tzar.
And I would get roses from my boy every day.
It is very hot in Belgrade during summer around 32 C.
However luckily for us in the main pedasterian street Knez Mihailova
one can cool off with nice summer coctails.
They are also very cheap for Swedish standards ranging from 2-5 euros, and sometimes even less.
We concluded the day at Kalemegdan's park. Kalemegdan is Belgrade fortress,
unfortunately I don't have any photos of the fortress itself, but Wikipedia does. So CLICK
It truly is beautiful and there are many small shops in the park where you can by very cheap jewlery and souvenirs.  The rings I am wearing in these photos are both from there.
The second day I picked white to wear. All from H&M.

This day we planned to visit both Tito's burial place and Milos Obrenovic's palace. For those who don't know, Tito was Yugoslavian dictator who was however loved by his people. Not a single person I know that lived during that time coplains about Tito. 
He now represents something long time lost and nostalgic.
Obrenovic is however the founder of the second Serbian royal family after Karadjordje. Only to be succeded after some time with the first one again.

This is the place where the summits were held by the Yugoslavian Communist Party on special occasions.
To reach Tito's mausolem one has to go further uphill, on the little trail decorated with roses, and surrounded with Tito's sculptures. Very much a cult of a person.
We finally reached the mausoleum. Tito's grave is simple white marble.
Around it there are rooms with personal belongings.
Tito's family did not inherit anything of his wealth and property. All was returned to the state.
But clothes and etc.
And now from  hardcore communism to hardcore monarchy. Milos Obrenovic's palace is interesting for two things:
centuries old tree afront of it and a restaurant accross the street with awesome food. 
Its park is also lovely but we did not walk long due to 35 C outside.

The tree is so old that the branches have to be held in place with the metal poles.
There we go: that was part1. Next post more to come. 
If you are interested in something else about Belgrade tell me so this time I go I can write a post about it.

Banja Koviljaca

When I was around 3 years old my granparents took their house in Serbia. I spent many summers their and it represents a wonderful part of my childhood. My granparetns now spend most of their year there and every summer I visit it. 
The town itself is very small. It is also a famous spa build during the time of the Yugoslavian Kingdom. 
Here are some photos from the last summer.

Lovely Malmö

It is so beautiful in Malmo nowdays. We walk in sunshine. Hello spring, thank you for coming.

Copenhagen.

From the bridge that connects Malmo and Copenhagen,  to the streets and statues, the Guness records musem, the Little Mermaid, boat tour, Christania and Tivoli, Copenhagen welcomed us with sunny and beautiful arms.  Enjoy

A day in Limhamn

My friend came to visit these past days from France and we have been going around and about Malmo.
Today a poor camera telephone served us to show that spring is here. We were in this part called Limhamn to see the famous Turning Torso and have a nice lunch.

Missing Gothenburg

Malmo is lovely, but I do miss Gothenburg sometimes. The city and its colours. Sunshine and coffeebreaks. Summer.
These are some of the photos I took an early autumn 1,5 ago. Hope you like them.

Past few days in short.

I have like no photos from this trip. I wanted just to relax. But these few I do have show the story that follows this path: food, fooood, fancy dinners, shoes and tea time. And yeah the New Year. So here you go.


Belgrade| Beograd

I am a terrible terrible blogger. Sorry. I have no internet access here in Bosnia or rather had. So you will get a few posts now. No outfits however. 

I landed 23.01.2011 in Belgrade and stayed there for a day. So here you go.

We landed just about dinner time so we have descided to have one. My favorite would be the Russian Tsar restaurant that has been there since 1820! just at the start of the main shopping street Knez Mihajlo.

It is very nice inside the Russian Tzar. Very Russian of course.

And tasty. I ate steak in gorgonzola and after that coffee and tricolore cake which was amazing. <3

Since our stay was only until the afternoon the next day I just had to have breakfast here as well.

And the stroll at the Kalemegdan fortress. Lovely. If you want me to write a short Belgrade guide just say. Buzz me. xD
