Belgrade, Republic of Serbia eob@eyesonbelgrade.com

Resavska street is one of the most important streets in the center of Belgrade. It goes from the Church of St. Mark and King Alexander blvd., crossing Krunska ("Crown") street, passing by Belgrade Palace at the corner with Kralja Milana street, then "Manjež" park and the Barracks of the 7th Regiment at the corner with Nemanjina street, all the way to the General Hospital.

After the Second World War, in the 1950's, Belgrade started developing across river Sava, in the plain which was at the time practically uninhabited. Over the years New Belgrade grew into a municipality with more than 150.000 people living in its confines. It was well known for its Brutalist architecture, and still is, but in the recent years it has become a real business center with modern high rise buildings, headquarters of international companies and banks, hotels and fancy residential complexes.
