Trg Nikole Pasica, Beograd, Serbia, 2003[open in full screen]  

 
 

This square was laid out just after the second world war in honour to Carl Marx and Fridrih Angels. It was called Marx and Engels square until couple of years ago. It is a perfect example of socialist ceremonial square, with house of syndicate, central committee of communist party and museum of revolution all placed around.

  As you can see on the map of Beograd from 1878 space is still not defined and parliament building, visible in the distance was still not built.

Square was recently somewhat redesigned - humanized with ideas of one time mayor of the city, famous architect Bogdan Bogdanovic, when trees and the monument to Nikola Pasic, popular prewar politician are added.

  For a long time it was used only as a huge parking lot so this is definitely improvement.
