20 Black and White Photographs Capture Scenes of Knez Mihailova Street, Belgrade in 1983

Knez Mihailova Street is the main pedestrian and shopping zone in Belgrade, and is protected by law as one of the oldest and most valuable landmarks of the city. Named after Mihailo Obrenović III, Prince of Serbia, it features a number of buildings and mansions built during the late 1870s.

The street follows the central grid layout of the Roman city of Singidunum, as one of the main access roads to the city corresponds to the modern street today. The main axis of urban development was along the street, which was the main route of communication (via cardo).

One kilometer long Knez Mihailova Street was in 1979 included on the list of Spatial Cultural-Historical Units of Great Importance, and as such is protected by the Republic of Serbia.

These black and white photographs of Knez Mihailova Street below were taken by Bane Djordjevic in the spring of 1983.
