Some missionary friends of ours in Serbia invited us to visit them in Belgrade for the 4th of July. We had a lovely time with their family and got to see a lot of cool sites!
This view was just a stone's throw from their house and up a hill. Beautiful, isn't it??
From there we climbed this to this tower and toured it.
It had some awesome views, too!
Our hotel was just a few blocks from our friends' house, and was also right across the street from the Danube. So the next morning we took a stroll along the river. It was a gorgeous day!
On our way back to their house, we walked through the local piata.
Next our friends took us to downtown Belgrade, where we did a little shopping and walking around. It is a very pretty city!
Eventually we wound up at this fort. Parts of it were built in the 1400s!

We had a lovely time in Belgrade, visiting with our friends and enjoying the sites. And we were very excited to find an ice cream stand downtown that sold absolutely delicious 100% natural, sugar-free ice cream along with gluten-free cones! We were just about in heaven, and had some both on our way to the fort and on our way back to go to lunch. Yum!!!! What a treat! It's a good thing we don't live in Belgrade or we might visit that stand a little too often. :)
