More About the Author

Laurence Mitchell was born in the English West Midlands but has spent most of his adult life based in Norwich, Norfolk. Formerly a geography teacher he first turned his hand to travel writing almost a decade ago. As well as the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk at his doorstep he is also drawn to overseas destinations that lie well off the beaten track - those places that Colin Thubron describes as the 'nerve-ends of the world': transition zones and cultural frontiers like Central Asia, the Balkans and the Caucasus region.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belgrade in your hands 10 Jan 2006
This brand-new guidebook authored by Laurence Mitchell offers not only partly extracted texts from his ‘Serbia: Brad Travel guide’, but a whole new and very detailed view of Belgrade, an emerging European city-break travel destination. Having visited the Serbian capital several times, Mitchell describes what he noticed and inspected on the spot, in fact everything that a prospective traveler might encounter in the city. While his first book should unavoidably be read as a general and excellently written introduction to various facets of Serbia and her life, the second book - dedicated to Belgrade and focused on its attractions, serves as a necessary travel companion offering in its 13 chapters a great deal of practical and accurate information, suggestions, well-judged comments on monuments, attractions, hotels, restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars etc. As an experienced local tourism professional I am still wandering how the author succeeded in ‘capturing’ so many interesting details on Belgrade which are hardly known even to Belgraders themselves!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, on basics but getting dated. 15 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dining advice was good, the maps where not very clear & did not cover a large enough area. Changes in the city make advice out of date too quickly, at moment the Contemporary Art Gallery is closed, the National Museum is closed, the Botanical gardens are closed etc. A lot of places don't look like they will reopen any time soon and the city looks like it has no money to maintain anything. This guide needs another update soon. or it is not worth the risk of relaying on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just buy the Serbia Guide 16 Aug 2007
By Readz Alot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The page count (over 300) led me to expect a guide with extremely detailed information about Belgrade and its sites, restaurants, etc. What I did not notice in the description was the book's dimensions ... it's VERY small. Basically, what you are buying is the "Belgrade" chapter from Bradt's "Serbia" guide, with a minimum of additional information. If you plan on seeing more than just Belgrade, buy the Serbia volume and you'll get almost all the same info, plus info on the rest of the country. If your only destination is Belgrade, I suppose this will save a little room in your luggage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent city guide 3 Jan 2007
By George Gryak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A truly complete guide to one of the most fascinating modern capitol cities in Eastern Europe -- Belgrade, Serbia. From discos to frescos this book describes all the sights in dramatic detail and with some color pictures as well. Since the wars in Yugoslavia, no tour guides have been published, this is the first one to be published since the breakup of the countries in Ex- YU and it is done very well.
