Serbian Urban Parks

We do not know very much about urban parks in Serbia. They tend to be popular play areas for city children. There are quite a number in Belgrade and the other cities of all sizes and with a range of facilities. There is a popular park in front of the Sebian Parliament in Belgrade, but I don't jnow the name. Another popular Belgrade park is St. Saba Gardens. A reader in Serbia tells us about story tellers who perform in the city parks. They are very popular with the children. Before World War II, authorities throughout Europe tended to restrict activities in urban parks, such as biking, rollsrskating, sports, and other often boisterous activities. The parks were often mnaintained as quiett natire spots for aduilts and well supervised children with their families. We don't know that this was the case in Serbia, but it probably was. Authorities are now quite open to children engaging in a variety of play activities, including biking, rollar bladeing, and even sports.
