The Golden Years

Many who walk in Kalemegdan are retired people, especially on weekday mornings and afternoons. They sit on benches bemoaning their meager pension checks, recalling stories from their youth, or engaging in a game of chess. Kalemegdan is also home to Belgrade's zoo, and a doting grandma (baka; BAH-kuh) or indulgent grandpa (deda; DAY-duh) often treat their grandchildren to a visit. This "deda" appears to be headed for the statue of The Victor, visible in the distance.
