Promenada, Vrnjacka Banja, Srbija, 2007[open in full screen]  

 
 

Vrnjacka banja, is the largest spa resort in Serbia. Stunning location at the foot of the mountain Goc with six hot and cold mineral springs rich in minerals and used for rejuvenation for both body and soul! Along the beautiful little river promenade is developed with range of hotels and villas around. This expansion is used mostly during the summer for concerts and many other carnival like events.

  Whole area including this square has special microclimate famous since preroman times. Nearby is preserved well with still runing mineral water exploited since second century.

Even the graffiti on this square is special and poethic: "You that do not know, showers of sounds, colours and smells... you thoughtless people!"

  Illustrated on the small photo bellow is another peculiar curiosity of this space: Along the fence across the bridge lovers are following the local legend and attaching locks with their names and throwing the keys to the river bellow as a token of their never ending love. This was a first place this tradition started, but it was followed by Paris, Toronto and probably more spaces that I am not aware about.
