Plato, Beograd, Srbija, 2011

This lovely piazzeta connecting Studentski Trg with pedestrianized area of Knez Mihailo street was named Plato after one of the best bookstore in Beograd. Over time it become a cult place where famous writers, musicians and sometimes even politicians could be frequently found. Plaza is incorporating few cafes, antique and second hand booksellers and remains of the Roman bath. Bath was excavated when the main structure of the square, building of the Belgrade University, School of Philosophy was built. It was created by one of my favourite professors Arch. Sveltislav Licina in 1977.
Monument to Petar II Petrovic Njegos philosopher and ruler of the neighbouring state of Montenegro is also on the Plato.

Today it is main gathering space for the students of the nearby schools and book lovers in Belgrade and beyond.
