Last weeks you could enjoy my doors photographed in Italy, now I take you for a trip to the Balkan region, more specifically to Serbia and Bosnia Herzegovina. Shortly after my Italy trip, I was able to go on holiday (rather unexpectedly) and after a little search on the Ryanair website I opted for a cheap Charleroi/Brussels – Banja Luka return flight. Banja Luka? Yes, the capital of Srpska Republika in Bosnia Herzegovina. Bosnia was for a long long time on my bucket list, and in the past I had to cancel my flights to Banja Luka twice due to water flooding in Bosnia Herzegovina.
But the title of my blog post says Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. A revisit (I was already there in 2013), and more specifically photographing the street art scene in this city was of course also on my to do list. Given the corona measures that apply in Serbia (my double vaccination was not valid, unfortunately), the best option was to leave Banja Luka for Belgrade as soon as possible with a negative corona test that was valid for 48 hours. Strict timetable, but everything went perfectly and smooth: a late evening flight, an overnight stay in Banja Luka and then I took the first bus to Belgrade which was an excellent idea in hindsight. The first hours I could enjoy the beautiful hilly landscape in Bosnia Herzegovina, driving through many small villages and after an 8 hour bus ride I finally arrived in Belgrade. Below, a small impression of my 4 days spend in Belgrade.
