Famous Russian Tzar coffe bar reopened

December 17, 2019

"Russian Tzar" reopened

One of the most emblematic Belgrade restaurants (or "kafanas" in Serbian), called "RUSKI CAR" (eng. "Russian Tzar"), in the building constructed in 1926 at the corner of Knez Mihailova st. and Obilićev Venac st., in the very heart of the city, is reopened after almost 8 years as a nice looking coffee bar / pastry shop. Now you can sit down for a drink or have a cake in a revived vintage atmosphere of the classical place that witnessed so much history from the first opening days back in 1890, in a much smaller building then, that stood on the same spot.
Notice a funny looking word game above the front entrance, where the new owners mixed Serbian cyrilic and English latin. How 'bout that.

A view on St. Mark's Church from Resavska street

A monumental five-domed church, placed in Belgrade's central park - Tašmajdan, was being built from 1931 to 1939, in Serbo-Byzantine style of architecture,  after monastery Gračanica in southern Serbia's Kosovo and Metohija region (built by Serbian king Milutin in 1321). (read more)

Sokol house, now City Center for Physical Culture

The house of "Sokol - Beograd Matica", Belgrade's main "Sokol" society (organization for physical education in the spirit of panslavism), is nowadays known as "Stari DIF", or "City Center for Physical Culture".

Year of construction: 1936

Architecture: Serbo-Byzantine style

Location: 27, Deligradska, Savski Venac district

Sokol house, now City Center for Physical Culture

Many of the municipal sports organizations are located here, as well as fitness centers, sports medicine ambulance, indoor courts for football, basketball, handball and volleyball, and an indoor swimming pool. Outside, there are tennis and mini-football courts and the ice-rink during winter. The building has 7 entrances - the main one on the front side, and two at each of other 3 sides. The general idea was that the whole structure resembles to one of Sokol athletic excercises.

This edifice (the corner building) was constructed as the headquarters of Serbia's first Telephone co. It is still used by the "Telekom Srbija", which is the national telecommunications carrier.

Location: 47, Kosovska street (2, Palmotićeva street), Stari Grad district

Old Telephone co. building viewed from Kosovska street

Despite that fact that it was designed in a traditional Serbian national style of architecture, on a photo of the entrance we can see two coats of arms with Serbian, Croatian and Slovene insignia. This part of the building (in Palmotićeva street) was added later, after the Great War (WWI) and creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, but it was constructed in the same manner, and with the same purpose, making a unified functional complex with the original structure. This crests were placed there to emphasize King Alexander's vision of the union of the South Slavs. It was pretty symbolic, because as it happened with the politics, this wasn't a very convenient solution.

 


House of Vuk's Fundation
