New City Gallery Planned

Belgrade's proposed City Gallery

As part of a general reconstruction of Belgrade’s historic city centre, the city authorities are planning a new City Gallery on Kosančićev Venac.

The revitalisation of the city centre is expected to broaden existing pedestrian zones to take in many of the streets around Knez Mihailova. Read more about these plans here.

Belgrade's proposed City GalleryOne of the streets that is to receive a major makeover is Kosančićev Venac, a long neglected but iconic and atmospheric part of the city centre. The plans include resurfacing of the cobbled streets, the transformation of the destroyed library into a green space and monument, the preservation of the house where a classic Serbian comedy – The Marathon Family (Maratonci) – was filmed and the construction of a City Gallery.

Details have now emerged of the appearance of the City Gallery, which is due to replace run-down sheds across the road from the Patriarch’s residence and the bombed library.

The gallery will contain the collected works of a prominent contemporary Serbian artist, Olga “Olja” Ivanjicki and will also host temporary exhibitions.
