Ground Zero - Terazije square
Terazije square
Three districts, covering a large portion of the center of the city, are symbolically tied with one of the essential points from Serbian history, and that's famous Kosovo Battle, from 1389, when the Serbs halted the Ottoman Turks and prevented them of invading Europe. Those districts are bearing names of Serbian heroes who died defending their homeland - Miloš Obilić (→Obilićev Venac), Milan Toplica (→Topličin Venac), and Ivan Kosančić (→Kosančićev Venac). Miloš Obilić is an iconic figure in Serbian history and the greatest hero of all, as he murdered Sultan Murat during the battle, for which he payed the ultimate price. Obilićev Venac goes from Knez Mihailova street (you enter passing by Palace "Albania" and after 50 meters turn left opposite to Republic square) and in parallel with Knez Mihailova street directly to Topličin Venac. This is a pedestrian area with lots of very nice coffee shops and bars. Topličin Venac is a large square with a park in the center, and the monument to Vojvoda Vuk, highly decorated military commander from the Balkan Wars and the Great War. Museum of Applied Arts is located there, as well as classical Palace Hotel, and nice little square commonly known as the "Rooster". Down the road, Kosančićev Venac is located, with very nice cobblestone area, and a great view on the river and New Belgrade. There is also a very nice house of Serbian mathematician Mihailo Petrović aka "Alas" (eng. "Fisherman"), then Princess Ljubica's Residence museum, the oldest tavern in the city called "Question Mark", Cathedral Church of St. Michael, and building of the Patriarchate. An area that you should definitely feel. It is next to King Peter's street and Belgrade Fortress, one of Belgrade's main landmarks. So, take a walk...
