Today is 1. May, International Workers' Day or also known as Labour day so my friends and i took a little trip with "old wolf" Stojadin (Or Zastava 101) car that was manufactured in old Yugoslavia. We went to see Avala tower and Kalemegdan fortress in Belgrade.

Little history about Avala tower. Avala tower is tall telecommunication that is located on mountain Avala in Belgrade. Tower was built back in 1965. but it was destroyed back in 1999. on 23. april, by NATO. Reconstruction was started in 2006. and it was officially opened on 21. april 2010. It's tallest tower in Balkans (204m tall).

Kalemegdan fortress oversees the confluence of the two rivers (Sava and Danube) that flows through Belgrade. It was built back in 279 BC. There is a lot of historical moments that were here but i will not talk about it, i will leave you a link where you can read all about it here.

Few of these photos were taken when we started going up on mountain to our location, Avala tower. There are a lot of trees that formed tunnel shape when going on road.

Sometimes you just need to look up and see beauty of nature in other perspective.

On the road we stopped to see Monument to Soviet War Veterans, that were killed in an airplane crash on the Avala back in 19. october 1964.

At this point, we were sitting on bench near monument and saw those big ants, they were eating little ants. Is this insect cannibalism? :D

Those are few photos that you will get when you go to see Monument to the Unknown Hero. There is a lot of space where you can walk and see beautiful panoramas of Belgrade and nature is beautiful.

Lepa kolekcija sa Avale. Svako je vidi na drugačiji način. Izgleda da je praznik učinio svoje, @miroslavrc, menjate stil. :)
Prvi put u životu vidim da neko sedi na spomeniku! Da li ste sišli do spomenika sovjetskim ratnim veteranima i videli lepotu njegove teksture ili ste slikali samo iz daljine? Divno što ste uočili i ovekovečili ovu fasadu, prepuna ih je Srbija. Osoben stil, zanimljivi pogledi na slikama. Hvala na deljenju.

Hvala. Sede ljudi, skacu, rade svasta kod spomenika, strasno je. Sisao sam do spomenika, stvarno su ga namestili prelepo. :)
