Going down the cobbled streets of Knez Mihailova Street towards the river, you are coming to the center of the old Belgrade spirit! Kosancic Square (Venac in Serbian means ”wreath”) was named after the hero of the Battle of Kosovo, Kosancic Ivan. Kosancic Venac is located on a hill above the harbor on Sava river, shielding the peaceful spirit of a somewhat forgotten Belgrade.
Here you can visit one of the many small galleries, chat with local artists or have a coffee overlooking the river in one of the tiny cafes home to this part of the city.
In the central part of this urban area the National Library once stood and held the entire collection of priceless medieval works written in Cyrillic; unfortunately both were destroyed by the Nazi bombings of 1941.
