Gospodar Jevremova street (eng. "Lord Jevrem's street") bears the name of Prince Miloš's father, one of the most educated people of the time and the first commander of liberated city of Belgrade. It goes for about 700 meters, in Dorćol neighborhood, connecting Belgrade Fortress with Skadarlija bohemian district and its principal Skadarska street.
This street is very old, it dates back to 17th century. It is very beautiful, but the majority of the houses are in state of decay. These edifices are silent monuments to the glamour the street once had. Many renowned people lived in it, like Nikola Pašić, for example, one of the biggest statesmen Serbia had, who died in one of the houses there.
The museum of Vuk Karadžić and Dositej Obradović, that guards the precious collection of belongings and documents of two greatest Serbian reformists, is located in this street.
In Gospodar Jevremova street you can find Bajrakli mosque, from 1575, the oldest standing structure in the city.
There is also an interesting early modern building of the First Danubian Steamboat Society at the corner with Kapetan Mišina street. But you shouldn't worry about the names, you should just let yourself go and enjoy this special kind of atmosphere that will certainly overwhelm you as you stroll the street. And then you'll stumble, for example, upon the building with no entrance doors (photo above on the left). Or on a seemingly cut-off yellow classical building, an endowment of Dušan Grujić from 1921.
First Danubian Steamboat Society building
The building of Viennese company, located on the corner of Kapetan Mišina street and Gospodar Jevremova street, is maybe one of the most interesting and most successful examples of Belgrade's early modern architecture. This building is worthwhile noticing while taking a walk through one of the oldest districts in Belgrade.
Year of construction: 1925
Architecture: early modern
Location: 6a, Kapetan Mišina street, Stari Grad district
Several advanced motives are implemented on the building facade, such as clock, and flagpoles. Now, it houses a cultural center called "Parobrod" (eng. "Steamboat") that promotes modern culture. And how appropriate is that! The two towers are meant to represent steamboat chimneys.
