Zemun city

Robin Biznis May 1.2019 Belgrade, Serbia

On that day, he was Thursday. With my mistake, I went to the hospital for examination 4 hours earlier.To somehow take advantage of that time, I took a bus to the nearby part of the city called Zemun, to walk along the Danube River.Zemun is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It was in Neolithic era, about 7 years ago.After the Second World War it was administratively merged to Belgrade.Even today, many Zemun citizens say that they are citizens of Zemun and not of Belgrade.My first visit was an arranged coast called Quay on the Danube River.Through the river behind those green forests there is the city of Borca where I live.There are plenty of restaurants and bars on the coast.In the picture below you see the famous Zemun tavern “Saran”In England, this is the name Carp.-fish. There are small narrow streets filled with taverns, restaurants, souvenir shops and galleries.When the “Saran” tavern goes uphill, it comes to the oldest church in Belgrade and Zemun, it is the church of St. Nicholas.It was built in 1752. It is currently being renovated.In her court I photographed an unknown grave.There are letters stating who was buried there, but they were in ancient Greek or Old Slavic, so I did not know how to read it.I walked uphill to the urban part of the city.There, in the main street, I made a photo of a theater named “Madlenium”.Then I returned to the Danube bank and drank in one restaurantdeserved coffee.I hope that you loved Zemun even though you only saw a couple of photos.

What do you think?

Hello

 

I am Dragan Čanković aged 65 years. I live in Belgrade, Serbia as a pensioner. On this site, my nickname is as well as on Facebook Robin Biznis.

Here I am trying to make some money through my own.

It's also very interesting for me to read what other people are writing and publishing.

I experience it as a creative work that actually is.

I wish you all good health and happiness to all of you.

    • Well, in the very beginning, he was independent.
      Later in the time of the Turks he fell under Turkish rule.
      After World War I it fell under the occupation of the Austrian-Hungarian state.
      At that time, the Danube River was the border between Serbia and the Austrian -Hungarian monarchy.
      After the Second World War, when Yugoslavia was created, the power was absorbed by Zemun in Belgrade, and so it is today.
      If you ever visit Belgrade, make sure to walk through Zemun, have a tower Gardos from which you have a nice view of the whole of Serbia.
      Greeting.
