I have always loved books, reading and losing myself in a good bookstore.
One of my earliest memories of childhood was my first visit to a library, being captivated by the rows of books.
Their colours, the smell of the books, magic, mystery and marvels awaiting the opening of the first page.
The bookstores that line belgradestreets are exceptional.
Many small shops bursting with hidden treasures.
Not yet dominated by the big chains with their identikit rows of airport novels.
Sipping a wine or a coffee in the street outside a bookstore on belgradestreets on a sunny summer day.
Does it get better than that?

Great collection, I can almost smell the books from here! Very interesting site – I’ve visited Belgrade and have some Serbian connections. I agree, a fascinating city and land.
I agree, browsing a bookstore is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon! Nice photos!
Thanks Mike, a walk on along the streets always turns up something new…
Thank you Letizia, the bookstores here are really rather special…
It certainly does, and always seems more enthralling in a less familiar place. Belgrade has a certain beauty to it.
That sounds so great – sipping a wine outside a bookstore, new book in hand. All of these photos are great – so evocative – but my favourite is ‘standing.’
Thanks Marina, belgradestreets really are a delight at this time of the year, the main street is lined with bookstores and their related cafe bars…..I hear their call now! 😉 Andy
It is remarkable city, btw just checked out your site — will now take a longer look , you have some great images. Andy
What a gorgeous collection of photos! I love “plato”, “standing” and “open air bookstore” the best.
Thank you! Love bookstores and they are great here… Andy
grilled books – clever! 🙂
Thank you…more to come! Andy
These are STUNNING. I love each and every one. I almost want to print them and hang them in my house.
Thank you! Very much appreciated! Andy
incredible photographs, i feel like I’m there, very powerful
James, thank you, really appreciate your comments. The streets of Belgrade are amazing to capture, whatever the subject. Andy
I love bookstores! My dream is to have more books than I could ever read in a lifetime. And I do read fast 😉
A perfect dream….thanks, Andy
