GoSee Tip : Boogie's Belgrade - a photo essay from the edge of Europe

Belgrade translates to something like White (Beo-) Town (-Grad) and is the capital of the Serbian Republic. The gate to the Balkan lies at the mouth of the river Save running into the Danube. In the 20th century, it was the capital of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and socialist Yugoslavia.

On the 5th of October, vigilant citizens, who joined the protests of the Otpor student movement, did away with the regime of Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milošević in Belgrade, without the use of violence for the most part. Boogie-quote on Sobodan: ‘When Milošević came to power in 1989, people thought he was going to resurrect Serbia to its former glory. It turned out he was just another self-serving Communist bastard.’

Here are some images of Belgrade, captured by photographer Boogie. The series was featured in SLAMXHYPE Magazine (and others). If you are keen to learn more about the city's history, the photography book 'Belgrade belongs to me', also by Boogie, is available on AMAZON.
