Belgrade buildings are a mixture of architectural styles, most of them are enlightened by Academism, Art Nouveau, Renaissance and Romanticism. Several decades of communist rule have made the architecture in Belgrade a bit chaotic; an unusual combination of beauty and, we feel free to say, ugly-gray.

In Belgrade, you will often encounter the beautiful old facade that leans on the neo-communist concrete building. For those who want to feel the spirit of the past communist times, the best way to do so is by walking around the New Belgrade. Here, entire blocks of settlements were built in a single recognizable style during the 1950’s. Ugly or beautiful, combination of the impossible, chaotic, all of this you can go through your head when you stroll through the city, eyes turned towards the buildings and facades. Still, you’ll never say “boring.”
Try to experience this mixture, and we offer you to stop in front of some of the architectural masterpieces, including a large number of cultural monuments.
