The military parade to mark 70th anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade in World War II and 100th anniversary of the beginning of WWI was held on 16. October 2014. in Serbian capital Belgrade. This was the biggest and the first real military parade that was held in any former Yugoslav republics after 29 years.



Since the new military equipment the most interesting thing shown on the parade, I am giving you a list. Those are all products of Serbian military industry:





And more (like Zastava M21 rifle https://en.wikipedia...iki/Zastava_M21, and other)...

Given the proportions and the layout of the square (with the lines), troop formations could easily line up for displays of might. It is huge, devoid of anything except the tall towering column of Alexander but the surrounding buildings are the real points of interest.The shape is more an elongated half-circle than an actual square. The Bloog sisters, Alexander I (1801-1825) conceived the concept of the square and instituted its construction; which is probably why his monument graces the square (and the angel bears his face). The arc shaped side of the square is bordered by the General Staff building which mirrors the curved shape of the square.Our favorites actually surround the square: Baroque Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace. The square connects Nevsky Prospekt street with Nevsky Bridge. During our visit, we saw some police presence and quite a few tourists but not as many as we would have expected.
