People call me Laki. I'm 22. I like architecture, photography and bicycling. Born in Belgrade and lived here ever since.

Belgrade is a capital of south-eastern Europe in many ways. It's my hometown that I love unconditionally. If coming here, be careful! You will easily fall in love. Only a nasty criticizing attitude can save you, but if you're like that, don't come. We like compliments.
