Danube Cruise Trip, September 26-October 13, 2013
Part 15 - Belgrade, Serbia

Having left Bulgaria and then Romania behind, we now had Serbia on both sides of the river. When the boat arrived in Belgrade, Serbia, we had a bus tour into town.

First, we visited the Cathedral of Saint Sava, the largest Orthodox church in the world.
