Spacious house, Turkish style, 8 kms from center Belgrade

Our home is alone standing on a hill slope, overlooking the settlement of Jajinci, eight kilometers from the centre of Belgrade. There is a frequent bus connection. Small shops in the neighbourhood. Wireless internet, plenty of room.
The ground floor is hired out to friendly people from Bosnia. Exterior staircases lead to second and third floor.
Outside our holiday-period low-budget rent is possible.
Met zijn bijzondere ligging aan de monding van de Sava in de Donau en zijn talrijke historische en culturele monumenten, is Belgrado een interessante reisbestemming. Zo kan men er zich heerlijk ontspannen aan de oevers van de Donau, slenteren door de talrijke brede winkelstraten en genieten van vele muzikale en culturele optredens. Tot de hoogtepunten behoren het Fort Kalemegdan - dat herinnert aan de periode van de Turkse overheersing, de Sint Sava – de op één na grootste orthodoxe kerk van de wereld, het graf van Tito - leider van voormalig Joegoslavië en de wijk Skadarlija, het "quartier Latin" van Belgrado.
Vooral het jongere publiek weet zijn weg naar Belgrado te vinden. De stad staat bekend om haar turbulente nachtleven. Een van de belangrijkste evenementen van de stad is het bierfestival van Belgrado.

About Our Family

I am 75 year old dutchman who married a serbian woman, Svetlana, in 2005.
Our marriage is really international, because we communicate in Esperanto.
My wife's children live in Zaječar, eastern Serbia.
After living for eight years in the Netherlands we moved to Belgrade, mainly because of the needs of my wife's family, who still has her mother, two children and two grandchildren.
I am learning Serbian, a difficult language, although I know already German, French, English and Dutch of course. Sed la plej bela lingvo en la mondo estas Esperanto.
I am almost equally active now as I was, when "young" and teaching mathematics in secondary schools.

Lifestyle

My wife is very neat (likes to clean). We don't smoke. Both of us are rather active on the internet, don't go out often.
