A cool building in Karaburma (BG)
After WW II Belgrade was a experimental ground for modern architecture. which I particularly like is untypically in a rather rural place called Karaburma, a district of eastern Belgrade. It's a residential tower and it was designed by architect Rista Sekerinski in 1963. The building is also called "Toblerone-Building" (as the famous swiss chocolate).
This is the panoramic view from the building

There are a few other high-rise buildings that were influenced by modern building of the 1960's and are not situated in Novi Beograd.
I took these pictures in the Dorcol area near the Dunav river.
