#About the Zoo With the White Lions In the City of Belgrade

With a long atmosphere and tradition, a visit to the Belgrade Zoo is an excellent and educational choice for anyone who wants to experience some nature, especially with children, in the capital of Serbia. This zoo has over 2,000 animals, with about 270 different species.

The Belgrade Zoo is located in the castle park in the city center, near the Belgrade Fortress. It covers about 70,000 square meters and is considered one of the favorite attractions for children in the city.

Many consider it a favorite place not only for these children, but adults as well. One of the important reasons that the Belgrade Zoo is famous throughout the world, as the breeding center of the
rare white lions. In 2005 two white lions were brought to the zoo, called Masha and Vombo from South Africa. After their offsprings were born here, some of them were distributed in a number of zoos in Europe and America and, being very rare, attract many visitors everywhere.

#About the Museum Dedicated to the World of aviation

The Museum of Aviation, with its impressive and futuristic look, is close to the airport, a 10-minute walk away and less than a kilometer.

The museum offers an outdoor view of many planes, not properly maintained, but authentic. Its interior is more modern and slightly more advanced and you can experience the entire 20th century, the century of aviation, through the displays of many items.

There are many types of aircraft from the First and Second World Wars. But what is unique and interesting here is the display of US and NATO aircrafts that were either intercepted or captured during the Kosovo war and NATO attacks at the time.

#About the Park Next to the Historic Fortress

The famous fortress of Belgrade, the impressive fortress overlooking the rivers, the Save and the Danube, surrounds Kalemegdan Park, the great green area. During the war with the Ottoman Turks this green area was a fierce battle zone.

The big park is divided into two parts. The southern most park of the two is the largest and is where the fort of the city stands. On the north side is the small park.

In the park there are geometrical promenades, shaded places for picnics and romantic hideouts, which allows for solitude, amusement and play for children as well. There are enough nice places here, like gates and canals, where you can get lost and have fun. The park also has green spaces, sports complexes, art, museums such as the Hunting Museum and Military Museum, and even a nice zoo.

Try to spend a few minutes and wander through the outer exhibits of the large collection of weapons from the military museum in the park. Among them are cannons, artillery equipment and armor from the 18th century.

In the park there are two sculptures by the Serbian artist Ivan Mestrovich, one of which is the Victor Statue standing on a 14-meter pillar and the very impressive Marianne Statue that was erected as a token of thanks to France for its unique contribution to the development of Belgrade.


#Tips
The observation of the sunset, the meeting of the Sava and Danube rivers, is wonderfully beautiful. If you can get there then - the pleasure is guaranteed!

#About the Artificial Lake of Belgrade


The shores of Lake Sava are the charming European beaches created in cities that have neither sea nor lake. In recent years, the Belgrade authorities have also wanted the beach for the city's residents. But the flow of the river did not allow a peaceful and safe beach enough, which led them to create an artificial lake.

To create the lake in question the Balgards simply blocked the flow of the river on both sides by closing the section of the river between the island of Edda Ciganalia and the riverbank. They did so on both sides of the island, and at a small investment they managed to create an artificial Lake, of Sava.

Thus, they succeeded in creating in the city the vibrant urban beach that the Belgards dreamed of. This beach is a beach for everything. Many sunbathers come every summer to the shores of the lake. You can also enjoy the cool season here, especially on the promenade along the beach, picnic on one of the lawns and cycling around the lake.

Of course, the beach life has created a rich and successful restaurant complex where you can dine and eat well. The restaurants and cafés are here on the waterfront. Many of them operate on boats and are floating restaurants or bars and cafes on the water.


#Ti ps

The most fun thing to do at dusk and evening is to sip a fine local beer in front of the lake.
