A street that, like many in Belgrade, has been known by many names.
Bulevar Oslobođenja (Boulevard of the Liberation) and then Bulevar Revolucije (Boulevard of the Revolution).
In the late 1990s, the name was switched back to its earlier form.
Or simply “the bulevar”
The history of the street’s name a pointer to Belgrade’s rich and turbulent history.
The longest street in Belgrade deserves more than one post.
The bulevar encapsulates many of the things about belgradestreets that fascinate me. People standing waiting, coming and going, trams clattering along the street, a miscellany of shops and markets, cafes, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, churches, parks, the university and more.
I will come back to record more.
For now, here are some images captured on a warm summer evening…
Thank you for following belgradestreets.
