Belgrade, Serbia is an attractive city. It reminded us a bit of Italy, especially when coming from Bucharest which was more along the lines of post apocalypse. Belgrade trolleys were newer, streets were cleaner and people seemed to pick up after their dogs more. You could get just about anything you wanted on the Belgrade restaurant menus, as long as it was a variety of sausage meat with potatoes. Getting to and from Belgrade is what presented us with issues…
The large Old Town section of Bucharest is packed with tourists, Romanians on ‘holiday’ and locals eating at the great restaurants. We could have conquered the trolley system, but after sitting around the apartment with our computers all morning making lodging reservations, we needed the exercise the three mile trip offered.
Lisbon Trolley Wires
Anyone who has visited Lisbon, or as the Portuguese say, Lisboa would likely recognize this photo as typical Portuguese. Trolley-car wires, stately bright yellow buildings with elaborate architectural designs and narrow balconies. Yellow is often the color of choice for the Portuguese.
