A TALE OF A WHALE AND A TALE OF A BOMB


The whale's tail stands just in front of the Modern Art Museum in New Belgrade. The building on the right in the background was an office building bombed from top to bottom during the 1999 NATO bombing of Belgrade,  Why bomb an office building, you might ask? Mainly because on its top was Marija Milosevic's (daughter of the infamous Slobodan Milosevic) sleazy television station Pink, which spouted propoganda for her dad.

After the bombing (you can see the bombed building just below here), it was repaired and even made a bit higher. Marija had since fled to Montenegro, abandoning her TV station...

The building on the left is a new adjacent to a mega mall.

Photographs by me...I was here for it all.
