The street that IS Belgrade! Jun 14, 2012
Knez Mihailova (Prince Michael) pedestrian street is the main city drag, its main artery, where the city comes to stroll, shop, sit and people watch in one of many street patios.
Anybody that comes to this city will surely end up on Knez Mihailova street at some point.
Locals call it simply Knez.
It stretches from the Albany building, close to the Republic square to the entrance to Kalemegdan park and fortress.
This street has a nice combination of old architecture from late 19th century, and some later styles left from communist times.
From the Roman times this street was the most important street of Belgrade. During Turkish rule there were gardens, fountains, and mosques along the street, and when the Turks left the most influential and wealthiest families of Belgrade society took over and started building houses on Knez Mihailova street.
Post World War II, during communist rule, this was just a regular street, later a pedestrian street, but always remaining the main city street.
The current look of the Knez Mihailova street is from 1987, when it was completely rebuilt and the new trendy tiles were put in place.
In the recent years many side streets have been rebuilt in the same style and many more bars and patios are now even more accessible.
Many important buildings are on this street, like the building of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Knez Mihailova 35).
Street musicians, artists, fountains, world's best popcorn, roasted chestnut in fall or ice cream in summer, there are always tons of interesting things to see and do on this street.
It's not possible to come to Belgrade and not stroll through Knez!
