Rep.Square to Saint Sava Temple

Direction Trg Republike – Terazije – Slavija – Hram Sv. Save

spomenik, knezu1

 

Monument to Knez Mihajlo (Prince Michael)

On the Republic Square, erected in 1882, as a symbol of the liberation of Serbia from the Ottoman authorities. A very good meeting point, a place known as “By the horse” in a local sleng, the cause of arguments to these who consider this name disrespective. However, everyone is so used to this slang name, so you will never hear the monument being called “by the Prince”.

Palata Albanija – Palace Albania
First skyscraper in Belgrade, 1939. At the time of construction, it was the tallest building in South-eastern Europe. It was named “Albania”, just as the same as the building that was previously located at that place. An inconspicuous and deserted tavern, although the favorite tower was demolished, and the palace “Albania” continues to proudly stand as the most important achievement of Yugoslav modern architecture.

slavija, fontana2Slavija
One of the busiest crossroads in the city. There is also a legend of “haunting”, a series of unsuccessful projects for the construction of a modern department store in Slavia, but none has been realized yet. From 2017, instead of Dimitrije Tucovic, for which he also had a name for a time, the music fountain is adorned with Slavija. It has become the object of glorifying her beauty on one side, but also the subject of disagreement on the other side, since almost the same number of those who believe that the project has been missed and that its place certainly is not within the traffic chaos that governs it.
