Gallery: Belgrade Amazonia

A few years ago, I settled in the area of Belgrade commonly known under the name ‘The Left Bank’. The name refers to the fact that the location is situated on the left bank of the Danube River, which flows through Belgrade. This coast is rich in swamps, wetlands, and forests. They are a natural habitat for thousands of migratory birds.

I consider myself relatively well-informed about natural parks and locations in Serbia. So, when I moved to this part of the city and started to discover it, the scenes of untouched nature just a few minutes from the center of the Belgrade did not cause a big surprise. They caused complete shock and disbelief.

A few kilometers from the center of Belgrade, on the left bank of the Danube, lies a vast expanse of swamps and forests that are home to thousands of birds. In those days when the first autumn colors appear, this paradise for birds also becomes a paradise for the eyes.
