This beautiful building is not far from me. I only know it as being the place where I go for a medical exam to renew my driver's license.
However, while walking the dog I passed and saw a sign First Town Hospital. I looked it up and you can read about it right here. It was constructed in 1868 as the first official hospital building. There is a museum inside now that I must visit.

In the US it's Saint Patrick's Day. There are some Irish pubs here and the cinematheque had scheduled an Irish film festival...but because of the coronavirus, events have been cancelled.
There's some green in this photo... ;)
If you want to watch a great film though, try WAKING NED DEVINE. You won't regret it. Great film. Outside the US, it's just Waking Ned.

Skadarlija, or Belgrade's Bohemian quarter or at least was in the past, is a place I've shown you before. Most recently was a shot of the now defunct beer factory you see with the mural on the wall.
I was enjoying an ice cream break (the weather's been that warm) outdoors and snapped the photo looking up the street.

Here's a current and older shot of Belgrade's original municipal building, which now houses the Yugoslav film archives. Awfully hard to get a decent recent photo because of all those darn cars parked there.
Here's a little history:
The Belgrade Town Hall now has the status of the cultural monument. It was built around 1846, during the reign of Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, and was located on the site of the former Great bazaar, which later became the venue of the administrative and educational life of the capital.
