Balkan File Has Moved

Balkan File has moved from its Blogger site and can now be found at:

The site feed has remained the same (, so you shoudn't have to update your feed or e-mail subscriptions.

All previous posts have been moved over to the new site. I will leave this Blogger version of Balkan File up for the time being.

If you have linked to on your website or blog, please update them to link to the new web address.

See you over at the new Balkan File!

Belgrade: A Step Back In Time

This post at Maria's Wish I Could Reach You In Belgrade blog about a travel book on the Balkans, which was written at the turn of the 20th century, got me wondering how Belgrade looked in the early(ish) 1900s?

So I did a quick search and found some interesting videos of Belgrade from the 1930s and thought I'd share them with you. You should be able to recognise some of the sights:

Update on new address
I'm still tweaking the new Balkan File site and it should be complete by Monday at the latest. So expect the new address then. If you're already subscribed to Balkan File via the RSS feed, it should automatically pick up the new site so you won't have to subscribe again.

It's Time to Move

Balkan File is going to be packing up its archives and moving to a new web address next week. I'm currently tweeking the design - I'm a bit sick of the limited and cluttered looking Blogger designs.

I'm currently in the process of transferring all past posts to the new site - unfortunately, I have to do it manually and will loose all the comments. It's a bit sad, but I'm sure you'll all make up for it with new comments in the future! :-)

I hope you will all follow Balkan File over to its new home when the move is complete by updating your RSS feeds and bookmarks. I'll post the new address once everything is sorted out.

So Long Summer

It seems that summer is well and truly over. After weeks and weeks of bright sunshine, clear blue skies and temperatures ranging from 30C to 40C, it was quite a shock to the system at the weekend. Cloud. Rain. 9C-12C.

At first I thought it was just a 'freak' day - and was quite happy to have some relief from the sweltering, summer heat - but no, it's still raining, it's still cold and I don't feel like going outside anymore.

See ya next year summer. Hello autumn, you've made a good start.

PS: I actually quite like autumn and winter, I just would have preferred a gradual transition!
