Serbia, Belgrade - Balkan Sights!
Submitted by flock1 on 2008-02-11 09:48:05 (via www.travelblog.org)
Vulture-like taxi drivers, cruise-missile damaged buildings, cheap food and drink. What's not to like about Belgrade!

Hi Jason!
It's been long since I last read such an insightful and informative article. Now, the only thing I didn't quite catch what was the deal with the taxi fare. The ride actually costs 10 euros and the drivers ask 30 for it?
And, you also mentioned at the end that you wouldn't return to Belgrade in the near future. Is there any other city in the Balkans that enchanted you more?

Hi,

Thanks for the comments about my trip to Belgrade.

Roxy, the airport taxi drivers will try to overcharge people. They will try (and get) 30 Euros even though it should only cost 10 Euros. They can do this because people haven't ordered an official taxi or can't be bothered waiting for the next bus.

Also, the reason I wouldn't want to go back to Belgrade is not because of the city itself, rather I don't like going back to somewhere I've already been. Put simply, I'd rather try somewhere new. Having said that, I did really enjoy Sarajevo. You can read it on this site or on a link from my Belgrade site. And I did rather like Sofia too.
