Before I moved to Belgrade, I believed in the common prejudice that it’s “just asphalt and concrete.” But then I discovered Kosutnjak. It’s one of the famous Belgrade parks, but what I love about it is that, at one point, it becomes a real, thick forest.
Belgrade is lively and there’s always something going on. There are picnic areas, parking spots and even cafes in Kosutnjak. On weekends when it’s warm, there can be plenty of people there.
However, there are also the “roads less traveled” which reveal the true beauty of this place. There are roads with almost no cars; or those where the cars can’t even drive. There is a thick forest where not many people like to go, and where you can’t hear the noise of the traffic. And yet, there are always signs of city life relatively near. Even if you get lost, there will always be some road nearby (I learned it the hard way, but it was fun). With the camera and a day to spend outdoors, this is one of those places where I go to recharge my batteries.
