Photographer's Note

I made this photo when walking with my wife across Visnjicka banja. Except extraordinary beautiful sky and this "story telling tree" you can see Pancevacki bridge and the part of Belgrade downtown.

Vinjička Banja (Serbian Cyrillic: Вишњичка Бања) is one of the most beautiful settlements in Belgrade and Serbia. It located in the northern section of the Vinjica field, between the neighborhoods of Rospi Ćuprija to the west, Leće to the southeast and Vinjica to the north.

The modern neighborhood was built as an urban connection of the former village of Vinjica to the rest of Belgrade and was so named after many thermal springs and healing mud near Vinjica (Vinjička Banja is Serbian for Vinjica spa). The springs, for the most part, have been artificially shut down and conducted underground into the city's sewage system.

The area is residential, without specific borders with Vinjica itself. Southern section of the neighborhood has many brickworks, but as boundaries of the neighborhoods in Belgrade are mostly arbitrary, some place this industrialized section in Rospi Ćuprija. It had the population of 8,497 according to the 2002 population census.
