gospodar jevremova

planters

The Bajrakli Mosque is the main feature of gospodar jevremova in Dorćol.

According to wikipedia the mosque was built around 1575, and is the only one surviving from the 273 that existed during the Ottoman Empire’s rule of Serbia.

Wikipedia goes on to say that “…during the occupation of Serbia by the Austrians (between 1717 and 1739), it was converted into a Roman Catholic church; but after the Ottomans retook Belgrade, it was returned to its original function…. it was damaged after being set on fire on 18 March 2004, during that year’s unrest in Kosovo, in violent protest to the burning of Serbian churches in Kosovo, but it was later repaired….”

Another fascinating street and a stark insight into the contrasts and drama portrayed by belgradestreets.
