[450] 2020-02-22 Beograd(Belgrade)

The spread of COVID-19 in Korea is not unusual. Fortunately, the mortality rate is very low compared to the confirmed diagnosis rate. Those who had chronic illnesses are most of the death.
So the pilgrimage of the author, which is going on from far away Korea, also stood at the crossroads. Everyone in the world is connected now.

I decided to take a rest another day, today in order to think over the uncertain schedule.
I decided to go to Belgrade, two hours by train from the hostel in Velika Palana.

1. Belgrade has a population of 1.2 million in itself and 1.7 million in the suburbs. It is similar in size to Sofia in Bulgaria.

It was the map that made the city curious. This is because the shape is very dynamic as the center formed adjacent to the Danube River is located where it joins another tributary.

7. There is a road that crosses the city at an angle straight from Saint Sava Cathedral in the lower right corner. The direction of the road, named after Saint Sava, faces the point where the Sava River joins the Daube River.

8. I did not enter the cathedral because I cared for the citizens in a wary atmosphere of the Asians.

24. Finally, I entered the Belgrade Fortress on the Danube River.
It is the confluence of the large river, which is a military hub and the center of logistics.
It was said that it has been since BC, and it has been used as a key area through long history.
