Trg Slavija, Beograd, Srbija, 2007[open in full screen]  

 
 

This square with popular name for all historic Slavs movements [Jugoslavija] to unite their territories and with the monument in the middle [I just recently find out that he is actually berried here!?] to one of the main Serbian politicians – Dimitrije Tucovic. It was always and still is only an ultimate test for new drivers with its extremely chaotic traffic.

  On the map bellow from 1878 Slavija was on the far edge of the town without even all of the streets. Its prime location in downtown today was a "battle ground" for generations of city executives with visions of monumental proportions. Unfortunately there were no results and the square is still with mostly unused real estate around. Famous cinema "Salvja" that stood for years on the square was demolished 20 years ago but nothing was built instead.  

It is still waiting some new visionary with enough support to develop this prime city space. Square is symbolically following the destiny of all Slav unifying movements, even if they existed at some point in time they are not in the sight anymore.

In July 2017 we heard about another attempt to revitalize this square. Let's hope that it will turn it to "better place".
