Centenary celebrations for Belgrade's Hotel Bristol

Celebrating the centenary of Belgrade's Hotel Bristol, Predrag Najdenov, Front of House Manager, sends these early pictures. The hotel looks hardly changed at all from its bright beginnings. The neoclassical building was designed by architect Nicholas Nestorovic and enjoyed a few brief pre-war years when the Serbian and Austro-Hungarian monarchies set the social pace in the city. In 1924 the exiled Zog of Albania lived here. Today, the two-star hotel is a protected building. Its 62 rooms and suites include the luxury Rockefeller apartment. See their website.
