Vracar - a combination of bohemian, history and urbanism

Chanted in songs, it produced so many famous poets, actors, writers… The smallest, and most densely populated Belgrade municipality - Vracar.

 

The St. Sava Temple, the National Library, the National Bank of Serbia, the famous neighborhoods of Pejton, Cubura, Savinac are all in this municipality. You can find here the Slavia roundabout, with famous Belgrade music fountain and the first Mc Donalds in Southeast and Central Europe.

 

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Vracar’s surface is the smallest and most densely populated Belgrade municipality with an area of 292 ha, with a population of about 80,000 people.

 

The names Vracar and Vracarsko polje appeared for the first time in 1492 in the Turkish plan for the Belgrade’s conquest, made at the request of sandžak-beg Sulejman-pasha from Smedeerevo. Turkish documents from 1560 mention Vracar as a Christian mahala with 17 houses within the city of Belgrade.

 

LOCATION

At the top of the Vracar Plateau, partly in the easternmost part of the Savski Venac municipality, as a result of a series of administrative changes to the municipal boundaries after World War II, the municipality of Vracar emerges. In a small area less than 1km away from Terazije and city center, Vracar has many famous Belgrade neighborhoods: Slavia in the north, Palilula in the northeast, ?ubura and Pejton in the east, Neimar in the south and Karadjordje park in the southwest.

 

Vracar Plateau is one of the highest points in the center of Belgrade, which is mostly built on hilly terrain of 32 hills. Today, these geographical features are hardly visible, as this area is completely urbanized.

 

INTERESTING FACTS

Vracar also has four theaters: Belgrade Drama Theater, DADOV and Left Theater, and there is a well-known children's theater, the "Pozorištance Puž”.

Probably the famous signs of Vracar are the cafes. Although many of them were forgotten, the former "Trandafilovic" remembers the times, remembering one Borislav Pekic and "Cubur" where poet and bohemian Slobodan Markovic - Libero Markoni spent his days.
