In early evening I went to center look lively with many people walking around Knez Mihailova street the core of the city. It is told that the nightlife in Beograd is pretty famous according to some pubblications I did not experience that much because I was tired.

From the cathedral I moved to the museum dedicated to the famous scientists Nikola Tesla. Originally born in Croatia from a Serbian family, during his life moved to United States. Important was his contribute to the electrical development.

Inside the musuem a guide in English or in Serbian provide a further detailled explanation about his history, and show some example of his experiments and inventions.

I came back to my accomodation to relax and then during have my dinner and drink some beer in Knez Mihalova street. After going out had began raining fortunately I brought an umbrella. The center was not full of people like the previous night, but still enjoyable even if it was raining. I went to an area of bars situated around Cetinjiska street. It was approximately midnight when I came back to my accomodation. It stopped raining and alone I walked through what seems dangerous but honestly I found completely safe.

I did not have any problem on the way back to my accomodation (actually I have never had in any of my trips).
It is not a large museum it has mostly object, clothes, flags, stamps. The former Yugoslavia during the second world war, and the period under Tito its lifelong president.
