Belgrade’s Cvetni Trg Awaiting Rejuvenation

Belgrade's Flower Square (Cvetni Trg)One of Belgrade’s smaller but prettier squares, Cvetni Trg (Flower Square) is expected to undergo a transformation.

According to City Manager, Goran Vesić, the square will be renovated with the help of a foreign grant secured by the city authorities.

“The square will be lowered to the level of Kralj Milan Street, with a special space set aside for the oak tree that is over 200 years old. The lower part of the reconstructed square, in the direction of the former Polet kafana, there will be space for a statue of one of Serbia’s and Vračar’s most famous writers, Borislav Pekić”, the city authorities confirmed in a statement.

The space currently occupied by the Gradsko Zelenilo flower shop will be reserved for a ‘walkway of the stars’, which will record Serbia’s most successful actors and directors in a manner somewhat reminiscent of Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Other planned reconstruction projects include Vračar’s Kalenić Pijaca, the Slavija roundabout, Južni Bulevar (between Maksim Gorki and Grčić Milenko Streets) and Kumanovo Street.

The city’s big urban make-over project from last year, the reconstruction of Vojvoda Stepa Street, is still running late and local residents are increasingly disgruntled at the slow progress, inefficiency and constant disruption. This project is expected to end by 31 July but there are already indications that this deadline will also be missed.
