An engraving of Josef Eder, published in Vienna. It is a panorama of Belgrade, seen from across the Danube, with the Lower Town and its port in the foreground. This panorama is one of the better, more accurate views of Belgrade. It testifies to the traffic on the Danube and gives us an idea of Oriental Belgrade as it looked before the series of Austrian-Turkish wars 1688-1789 destroyed its economy and completely altered its appearance.
