Djoković broj 1!
03.07.2011 - 05.07.2011
As we arrived in Serbia's capital on sunday, we knew something special was going on: people were cheering, cars were hooting and bikers were pulling wheelies galore down the main street. As we got closer to our hotel we realized why: Djoković was being crowned the 2011 Wimbledon champion! We were in for 2 very cool nights in Belgrade... To get an idea of the madness, see Clip 1, Clip 2 (we saw all the people in clip 2!) and Clip 3.
Belgrade is a beautiful city with lots of impressive history to explore and wonderful architecture. The city is a vibrant mix of new and old, and has an atmospheric cafe culture which is great for people watching and/or camel-toe spotting (the latter was around in abundance!).

Belgrade is an awesome city, well worth a visit. Our Belgrade experience was made even better by the Djokovic celebrations, how proud the nation is of 'their hero'. We didn't tell anybody we don't care much for tennis...
