Downtown Belgrade

Belgrade’s city center is a rather undefined area that encompasses parts of the old town on the Southeastern peninsula – South of the Danube and East from the Sava river.

Most of the important sights and attractions are located in the city center. This area is also packed with business and administrative zones, culture venues, clubs, bars and restaurants.

The narrow ring

The narrow ring refers to the boroughs that surround Knez Mihailova, Bulevar and Kralja Milana streets and the Republic, Terazije and Nikola Pašić squares. This includes Upper Dorćol, Kosančićev Venac, Kalemegdan park, and Skadarlija zone.

The tram no 2 circuit

The area surrounded by the circuit of the tram line 2 (aka. Krug Dvojke), and the surrounding neighborhoods form a wider city center stretching to the St. Sava Temple, Savamala and Dorćol districts and parts of Vračar.
