ABC WEDNESDAY--"S" is for "stately"
The other week I visited Princess Ljubica's (LYOO-beet-sa) residence in Belgrade, now a museum. Princess Ljubica was the mother of Prince Mihailo, whose statue I have shown you many times. The museum curator, dressed as was the Princess, greets about 30 visitors for coffee with Princess Ljubica," a clever way of making history come to life. She speaks as if the visitors are personal guests, and for a while, you lose yourself in history.
I'm an American woman who's lived and worked in Serbia for over 35 years. I've come to love the people with all their idiosyncrasies, and created this blog to help break some of the negative press about Serbs. I take requests for photos!
