SKYWATCH - The Ušće Tower
The Ušće (OOOSH-chay) Tower, located on the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers. (Ušće means 'mouth' of a river.) Ušće Tower is the tallest skyscraper in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, and the second-tallest building overall, after the Avala tower. It was the tallest skyscraper in the Balkans until the construction of the Avala Tower.
Got this shot when I managed to make it to Kalemegdan park early....and caught the mist.
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!
