New Belgrade Skyline


Here's a twilight view now from one of my windows looking toward part of New Belgrade. New Belgrade, or Novi Beograd, sprang up around 1952, and is the most populous of the city's 17 municipalities, with with over 200 skyscrapers and 600 apartment buildings, and is a city within a city. It's Belgrade's biggest residential area as well as a place of lively economic activity, and is divided into "blokovi," or blocks, which is usually how its inhabitants refer to where they live, e.g. "I live in Blok 24."
