offer for the buildings belonging to the former Embassy of the United States of America, which was located on Belgrade's main thoroughfare, Kneza Milosa. The Embassy moved a few months ago to a new location, which you can see a bit of on this link, the reason being that our embassies have to be a certain distance from the street.
It saddens me to see the upper photo. For years after I came here, the Embassy was quite approachable. Then came the sealed-up windows, the cement block barricades, a real guard booth, and even the closing of an adjacent street. Residents of that street could enter, but you just couldn't drive down it. The Embassy took on the appearance of a prison.
