A few videos about Serbia
« on: May 22, 2016, 10:45:07 PM »
For those who might be interested. :smile: My motto is that knowing the right information helps in making the right decisions. And mine is to offer. :cool:

For the beginning, an amazing motion time-lapse.



Impressions of an European I suppose, I don't know why was he paying in dollars, though.



Charles Cather is an American who has moved to Serbia.







And a cute Aussie couple for the end.

It depends on each individual.
A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

I keep it simple: is it generally safe enough to visit or live? I hope they don't become "invaded" to the point where they become a lost cause.

Well, in short, safe enough to visit or live. You are absolutely safe on the streets anytime day or night, because there is no street crime and you can't get robbed on the street, but you can get pickpocketed usually by some Gypsy if you are in a crowd of people and you are not situationally aware, you must always know where your wallet and cell phone are.

Now, a bit longer version. If you are a foreign tourist and you show respect, you will be treated like a god or a king, because there is a tradition of hospitality, especially towards foreigners, and there is a traditional belief that a guest is God in disguise who came to test us. Speaking of Belgrade, April is considered the most beautiful month, especially during the week when all the trees are in bloom and get those white and pink flowers with the sweet scents everywhere around. Summer is very hot. Nowadays, there is practically no fall, because you switch from summer shirts and shorts to winter coats. But we have had very nice and temperate and beautiful falls some 20-30 years ago. Winters can be either temperate with little snow, or very cold with lots of snowing, it depends on the year, but we have extremely cold and strong winds during winter. Young people usually speak English good enough, and they are willing to socialise with you and show you around. There are tons of history and stories to tell. Tasty food, cheap drinks, cheap accommodation. (And also cheap whores, if a wealthy foreigner is into buying gifts.)

Now, to live, it gets even more complicated. It is a real nightmare to start and run a private business, because you must be paying racket to the politicians in power, otherwise they will figure out how to not allow you to register your private business, or how to shut it down. The juridical system is totally corrupted, and if you are in the court, you can't expect a just verdict, or even your case to be solved at all, people are suing each other for years and decades with no verdict in sight, and to sue the government sounds like a bad joke. But if you are a native speaker of some foreign language, you can easily get some job which requires perfectly spoken foreign language. If you wish to permanently settle and become a Serb, it is acceptable if you racially belong to any range of white or brown, and even some yellowish could be fine, but if you are fully yellow or black, then it would sound just like a good joke. There are good and bad neighborhoods, so you would have to figure out a good one which fits you. We tend to be good to foreigners, but bad to our own neighbors. We also tend to believe that we are a caring and generous and Heavenly people and that Jesus himself is a Serb, while in reality we are very selfish individualists, and most people will more sincerely believe in yoga or in some kind of magical spell rather than in Christ. We are not poor, and we have never been a third world country, we are just broke at the moment, only because our corrupted politicians are stealing billions of Euros per year from the people and transferring them into their foreign bank acounts, otherwise the country itself could become extremely rich if allowed. But not being much wealthy can also save us from Muslim migrants, thousands of them are in transit over Serbia every day, but none of them wants to remain here, because they are heading towards rich EU countries. A robber always searches for the richest house to rob. Our corrupted government is already accepting all Gypsies expelled from the EU, and they have agreed with the EU to accept several hundred thousand of illegal immigrants, but I am not sure that plan can be accomplished in reality. Anyways, our population is declining like in every Western European country because of the low birth rate, and we will become a minority in our own country in the next 50 years, if things are not changed for the better.

And now, a cherry on top. :smile: If you can enjoy such a wedding, then you are truly one of us. :laugh:

Lol, just a random disoriented American wandering in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Serbia on the border with Romania, spectating the waves on the Beautiful Grey Danube, and walking to see a Medieval fortress.
