Kralja Milana street

Kralja Milana (eng. "King Milan street") is one of the central avenues in Belgrade. It goes on from Terazije Square to Slavija Square, for about 1 kilometer.

The street bears the name of King Milan (1854-1901), the first king of modern Serbian state.

Many of the important buildings are located in this street, for example the Old Palace (now Belgrade City Hall), the New Palace (now Presidential Palace), and the Yugoslav Drama Theater. A memorial museum/appartment of the famous Serbian paintor Paja Jovanović is situated in this street, and also there is a direct access to Andrićev Venac, street dedicated to our Nobel Prize winner, Serbian writer Ivo Andrić, with its monument and appartment/museum. A popular "Cvetni trg" (eng. "Flower Square") with lots of flower shops and coffee places is on the way to Slavija Square.

A famous and once the tallest building in Belgrade ("Beogradjanka", eng. Belgrade Palace) is rising high above the street. Walking from the Terazije Square to Slavija Square, you can see in the distance a monumental St. Sava's church, one of the largest christian cathedrals in the world.

Like at Terazije square, walking Kralja Milana street all the way to Slavija square, and looking at the buildings, you can guess with 90% of chance that, whatever edifice you turn your eyes to, it was constructed with the purpose of holding the offices of a bank or some insurance company. Often, there is an inscription on the proper facade of a building explaining who was it for.
