may he live if we humans allow him the pity that he is so rarely so old and so beautiful

With so much air pollution in the world, trees are losing their will and power to live!

Near our city, on Savur-Mohyla, there is a similar tree, which, after the World War Two, is annually decorated with pioneer ties, in memory of the fallen heroes ...

I would love to visit that place!

Unfortunately, I also will not be able to visit these places soon, I'm leaving for Hungary

From Hungary you can easily reach Smederevo Fortress, it is not far away

I came back, because of Coronavirus the borders were closed and I had to go home, I will wait until everything calms down (((

Unfortunately, there is also chaos in Serbia over this virus
