Belgrade: Kalemegdan

Kalemegdan_4

Ivana Jonvanovic and Tatjana Lemajic:

We are in Kalemegdan, the old Belgrade fortress, a symbol of the town. We come here very often, actually we are trying to get out of the townalthough we are right in the centre of it. This is a place of calmness and peace, but we also take a rest after the university or we prepare for exams. It is the place we like most here. We actually life quite far from here and it takes us 30-45 minutes to get here, but it is worth to do so and we are already used to do it, even when it is hard to get trough all the traffic of Belgrade.

What we both love here is being close to natural elements: grass, wind, trees...therefore it is not onlz the good view which makes this place special but the combination of both. We can leave our everyday life behind somehow, contemplate and enjoy yhe silence. This is not possible at the place where we are living. There are of course green open spaces but you can not isolate yourself because they are too open and surrounded by traffic, here, it is different, we can really come back to ourselves.

I (Tatjana) have been already to Istanbul ad the town has touched me a lot, Istanbul is warm, I mean, internally warm, very specific....
