After Budapest we headed to Belgrade in Serbia. You could still see the affects of the wars from a few years back in the city. Shanty towns could be seen on the outskirts of the city and the buildings were very dirty and some were very run down as a result of the war.
We didn't get to see much of the city as we were only there for one night and it rained constantly. But from what I could see, I wouldn't go back for another few years until they've cleaned it up a bit. Some locals were friendly and we had a strange but pleasant meal (definatrely not our best) in the city.
Can't really give a verdict since i didn't get to see much of it, but the women dressed very well and supposedly according to the guide books are very proud of this. :-)
As we moved on from Belgrade we got to see more of the serbian countryside and is really beautiful.
