"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    Hi, I am from Belgrade, which is capital and the largest city of Serbia. There are two millione people in Belgrade and always something happens.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 18,099 mod
    @Lana what I know about Serbia is his complicated geography, but I learned earlier at school about Yugoslavia, but about 10 years ago everything changed. ( I am ritered now)
    What me at that time fascinated was the story of the Ottoman Bridge. It was supposed to be a prescribed culture, that sixteen-year-old boys from Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina jumped from the historic bridge Stari Most in the icy Neretva River to start a successful life as an adult.

    Hi @arzulita i'm from Indonesia :smiley:
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 36,096 mod
    @Lana (and @markov)I first visited Yugoslavia in 1981 before it split into several different countries. I returned last year to visit Lubjiana, Zagreb, Sarajevo and Split. I will go back as I need more time to explore the region.

    In 1981 my friend and I were travelling by train inter railing in Eastern Europe @Paulette - Czechoslovkia, Hungry, Romania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia hardly seemed communist in comparison to the other countries (Hungry seemed a bit more liberal than the others too). We were about the only western tourists travelling to these places then! It was a fascinating trip.

    @Andika where in Indonesia are you from? I know it is a very big country. I visited East Java a few years ago and I was very impressed.
