It is the very first foreign country I have visited. I was taken there by my mother, on her numerous trips along with my grandfather and pretty much all the siblings and the neighbours we knew.

The year was 1990 and I haven't been there since. Back then, it still stood as Yugoslavia, although I only visited present region called Vojvodina, which is still part of Serbia. For the sake of accuracy and for not knowing precisely what dates we've been in each city, this is a list of all dates in the passport for the serbian trips: April 10,16 + May 13,21 + June 8,9,12,16,25,28 and August 17 of the year 1990.

Places I've seen are: Subotica, Zrenjanin, Senta & Kikinda.

SuboticaSpring 1990

It is the largest city I've visited in Serbia so far. We've been there a few times, mostly driving thru the city and stoping at the main market. The trips took place in the spring of 1990. We'd usually get there after stoping in Senta, and on our way to Zrenjanin. The main reason for going there was to buy the very famous 96% alcohol, made locally.

ZrenjaninSpring 1990

Third largest city in Vojvodina, after Novi Sad and Subotica, Zrenjanin was home to our soon to be step father, Dragan. We went there one time, with Geo & Camelia, to visit Dragan's family. Quick drive thru the city, the main target being his house & back. Spent a whole afternoon, after which we went straight back to Romania. This is the last time I step on yugoslavian / serbian soil.

Kikinda & SentaSpring 1990

While always only passing thru Kikinda, Senta is definitely the city I spent most time while in Serbia. It's also the city that brings back the most exciting memories of international travel and free market commerce.
