No, Belgrade Waterfront is not just buildings and apartments

“And how do you feel about Belgrade Waterfront? It’s nice, isn’t it?” the visibly delighted lady asked her daughter when they set foot on the ground floor of Galerija from the underground garage.

“Galerija is beautiful; you can see that right away! I can’t wait to go shopping because I know what they have here. It is tidy and new, everything seems clean and it’s easy to get everywhere, but as far as I could see when we were coming towards Galerija, Belgrade Waterfront is just buildings and apartments and nothing else,” answered the daughter.
