Once the Officers' Club, built in 1895 with the financial support of King Aleksandar I Obrenovic, this unusual yellow building's been the seat of the Students' Cultural Centre since 1971. Here you can visit different exhibitions or concerts.
With its 24 floors, Beogradjanka (Belgrade girl) is 1 of the tallest buildings in Belgrade. It was built between 1969 and 1974, following the plans of Branko Pešic.
Today it houses a department store, business offices and radio & TV stations.
Intro Jugoslovensko Dramsko Pozoriste (JDP) or in English the Yugoslav Drama Theatre was founded in 1948. However, the foundations of the building date back to 1864. The building served various purposes before it became a theater.
After WWI Following World War I, since the National Theatre building had been bombed, the JDP building was reconstructed and in January 1920 theater performaces started taking place at the present location of JDP. The auditorium contained 400 seats. Once the National Theatre was reconstructed in 1922, the replacement theater was not closed but it continued to work as the second stage of the National Theatre.
The First Fire On September 11th 1927, the building burnt down in a fire. In 1929, a new building was erected following the plans of engineer Vojislav Zadin and architect Nikolaj Krasnov, and it operated under the name 'The Building on Vracar'. For a short while, the National Parliament of the Kingdom of the Serb, Croats and Slovenes was accommodated in this building.
After WWII Architect Momcilo Belobrk improved and modernised the auditorium and the building, and on April 3rd 1948 the Yugoslav Drama Theatre was opened. In the period between 1948 and 1997 the stage underwent several alterations, the cameo stage, the 'Bojan Stupica' Theatre, was added, and for a time there was a 'theatrical salon'.
The Second Fire On October 17th 1997, the building housing the main stage of JDP burnt down in a massive fire.
Soon after, plans were drawn up and the building of the new main theatre began.
This place used to be the court during the times of the kingdom, it was king's palace and it is where one of the kings was killed with his wife, they were thrown out of the window!!! :(
Today, it is a place popular for welcoming our athletes after great victories (especially basketball, volleyball and waterpolo players), because people gather in mass at the specious area in front of the court (and smash all the flowers carefully planted! Horrible!)
The Old Palace, the Royal Palace of the Obrenovic Dynasty of Serbia, was built between 1882 and 1884, according to the design of Aleksandar Bugarski, in the style of academism of the 19th century, with intention to surpass all existing residences of the Serbian rulers.
As parts of the Palace there were also a nicely arranged library and the Palace chapel, which faced the garden. The whole interior equipment of the Palace has been mostly imported from Vienna.
Nowadays, the Old Palace is City Assembly.

It dominates over Belgrad and if you have a chance to see it , the view from higher floors is PERFECT.
