COST OF LIVING Exchange rates (on septemeber 30, 2010.): US$1 = 74.9 RSD, €1 = 107.46, UK£1 = 112.2 RSD 
Transport: *Public transport one‐way fare 50 RSD/ €0.47 *Taxi If calling a taxi in Belgrade, you can expect its to arrival promptly‐ usually within 2 minutes of your call. However, they will be harder to reach during rush hour (around 5. pm) or in harsh weather (in Belgrade, that includes drizzling rain). Most taxi companies have a 20% discount on fairs scheduled by phone, but in exchange will want to know your destination (indeed, they may not take on short rides, in which case you should hail them on the street). The average fare around the downtown should not be higher than 400‐500 RSD / €4‐5 (300 RSD / € 3 for short rides and around 1000 RSD/ € 10 to and from the airport Nikola Tesla). Every Belgrade taxi company has 2 signs: a company unique sign and a smaller blue one with 4 numbers ‐ a distinctive numeral of each vehicle. If you grab a cab without the second sign ‐ chances are that it's illegal. IMPORTANT: Cab drivers at the airport, the central railway and bus station, tend to GREATLY embellish the prices, so in regard to the afore mentioned rates, either negotiate a fare, or be sure that the meter is turned on and running.

Restaurants The Serbian gastronomy (and not only gastronomy) was formed under the influence of all the cultures that subsisted in Belgrade throughout history and Belgrade restaurants will provide flavors of Mediterranean, Oriental, and central European (above all Hungarian) dishes. Serbian traditional cooking involves grilled meat, beans and many cabbage‐based meals. Bean broth (pasulj in Serbian) or cabbage are most often prepared with meat ‐ so if you are vegetarian, don't experiment much with the customary Serbian restaurants and go for international cuisine. If, however you consider yourself a meat aficionado, Serbian cuisine is indeed flavorsome. List of Belgrade restaurants http://www.belgradeeye.com/index.html UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE

The Romans were the first to build a fort (castrum) on this site and in the late 1st century AD, it became the headquarters of the IV Flavian Legion. Over the centuries of sieges, battles and conquests, the fortress was repeatedly razed to the ground, rebuilt and restructured. It took on its present shape round the end of the 18th century, but again, the wars that followed destroyed nearly all the buildings. The Belgrade Fortress UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE
FACULTY OF PHILOSOPHY
consists of Upper Town,Lower Townand and Kalemegdan Park. Kalemegdan Park was created as late as the 19th century on a plateau in front of the fortress, which was cleared for centuries to allow for an unobstructed view of the advancing enemy. The park is popular because of its many shaded benches, randomsculptures,anartpavilion,zoo,amusementparkand souvenir vendors. It is a favourite haunt for chess players, squirrels and couples in love. Most of the preserved fortress ramparts and gates are located in the Upper Town, as well as the Military Museum, St. Petka and Ružica churches, Roman Well (an intriguing building whose eerie waters have claimed many lives) and the symbol of Belgrade ‐ Pobednik (The Victor). The plateau with the statue of Pobednik offers stunningviews overtherivers and incredible sunsets. The Lower Town on the banks of the Danube was the main city centre in the Middle Ages. It was surrounded by walls and had a port. Only a few buildings remain today: Kula Nebojša (Daredevil Tower) from 1460, the Turkish Bath from the 18th century (which today houses a planetarium) and the Gate of Carl VI from 1736. No admission fee. Open 24 hours a day. KNEZ MIHAILOVA STREET Knez Mihailova Street is the main promenade and shopping zone. A pedestrian area, it stretches between Terazije and Kalemegdan Park. It is named after Prince Mihailo Obrenovic, the most enlightened ruler of modern Serbia and the younger son of Prince Miloš. He came to the throne after his father’s death in 1860 and was assassinated during a stroll through Košutnjak Park in 1868. Buildings and mansions erected in the late 19th century adorn the street. REPUBLIC SQUARE The main city square which features the National Theatre (completed in 1869), the National Museum and a monument to Prince Mihailo, which was erected in 1882. The area is popular with Belgraders as a meeting point. It was once the location of the infamous Stambol Gate, which was the main entrance to the Belgrade Fortress. Today this square hosts concerts, demonstrations and various other events. DORĆOL After the Belgrade Fortress, Dorćol is the oldest part of Belgrade. It once covered a small part of the Danube town directly by the crossroads formed by the streets of Cara Dušana (Vidinski sokak) and Kralja Petra (Dubrovačka). This is how it got its name, from the Turkish word "dörtyol" which literally means "the place where four roads cross". Over the course of time the name was applied to the whole area from Students' Square to the Danube and from Skadarlija to Little Kalemegdan. The oldest town house that has been preserved is the one dating from 1724 at Cara Dušana 10, while the most important buildings from the 19th century are the Museum of Vuk and Dositej, St Sava's House (Dom Svetog Save), the Bayrakli Mosque (Bajrakli džamija), the Church of Aleksandar Nevski (crkva Aleksandra Nevskog), as well as the building of the Pedagogical Academy (today the Pedagogical Museum). UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE
FACULTY OF PHILOSOPHY
Dorćol was once the home of Turks, Austrians, Jews, Greeks, Cincars and natives of Dubrovnik as well as Serbs. In the 19th century the Jewish quarter was located between the present‐day streets of Tadeusa Košćuška, Braće Baruh and Dunavska. The Turkish quarter with its Zerek (a word of Arabic origin meaning "uphill") straggled around the crossroads formed by what are now known as the streets of Cara Dušana and Kralja Petra. It was inhabited by the most influential Turks. Their houses were hidden by spacious gardens. From 1806 onward, after Belgrade was liberated, the most well‐
known leaders of the uprising lived here.Dorćol is now mainly a residential area and a favourite place for lovers of the river to walk. The Quay on the banks of the Danube next to the Sports Centre is especially popular. Strahinjića Bana street with its array of cafés and restaurants is a popular place for evening entertainment. SKADARLIJA Skadarlija ‐ Skadarska Street dates from the late 19th century. This steep cobbled area is dotted with famous Belgrade taverns: Dva jelena (The Two Deers), Tri šešira (The Three Hats), Dva bela goluba (The Two White Pigeons), Zlatni bokal (The Golden Jug), Ima dana (There’s Time), Šešir moj (This Hat of Mine), galleries, antiques and souvenir shops. In the early 20th century, it became a hub for the arts and artists in Belgrade, a bohemian quarter drawing poets, journalists, painters, and actors. Today, its guests are mostly tourists whose presence accounts for the higher prices and removal of many authentic Serbian dishes from the menus. The evening is the best time for a visit, when live traditional Serbian music spills from all tavern doors. THE ČUKUR FOUNTAIN (ČUKUR ČESMA) Address: Dobračina 42 In 1862 the murder of a young boy at the Čukur Fountain lead to fighting between Serbs and Turks, which was followed by artillery bombardment of the town by the Turkish army. A monument to mark the event was erected on the site in 1931. The Čukur Fountain Kosančićev venac
KOSANČIĆEV VENAC One of the few preserved old parts of the town is Kosančićev venac which is located in the southwest of Old Belgrade on a mound facing the Sava River. Back in the middle ages, a Serbian settlement began to develop here with its own church and graveyard. At the beginning of the 19th century this part became the heart of the town from and around which the wider area of Belgrade grew. Today only a few buildings and other features remain which preserve the spirit of old Belgrade. Kosančićev venac, with its cobblestone street, courtyards and buildings snuggling amongst the concrete edifices of a newer age, has preserved a part of the long‐gone atmosphere. For this reason it is often used as a location for historical films. In it are the Rectorate of the University of Arts in Belgrade, the Commercial Gallery of Belgrade ("Prodajna galerija "Beograd"), as well as the remains of what was once the National Library, which was demolished in the air‐raids of 6th April 1941.

STUDENTS SQUARE ( STUDENTSKI TRG) On the site of today's Students' Square there was once a ploughed field with Turkish gravestones. In the second half of the 19th century it was dug up and levelled, and the Great Market (Velika pijaca) was opened on the site, which was overshadowed by the then‐newly erected Captain Miša's Building (Kapetan Mišino zdanje), with its light coloured façade and reddish decorations and motives around the windows and doors. When Belgrade fell into Serbian hands, the site of what had once been a market was cleared and levelled to make way for a park. THE UNIVERSITY PARK During Turkish rule the Turks had a cemetery on this spot, but it was removed in the mid‐19th century. Later on, the largest and most well‐known market place was created on part of what is now a park. Emilijan Josimović, the first Serbian town planner, felt that the site demanded something more aesthetically pleasing than just a market and so after 1869, when work on building regulations began, he reduced the size of the Great Market by a half and converted the remainder into a park. The park began to take on a formal shape at the end of the 19th century, when the monument to Josif Pančić was unveiled, and it assumed its final appearance during the 1930s when the monument to Dositej Obradović was re‐sited from Kalemegdan and the present Baroque fence was erected. TERAZIJE SQUARE The site of today's Terazije Square was just marsh and open fields outside the city ramparts right up to the 1830s. Terazije got its name from the towers that distributed water from above, which were called water scales ('terazi') by the Turks. The intensive construction of Terazije began in 1860 when the water tower was replaced by the Terazije Fountain (Terazijska česma) in memory of Prince Miloš Obrenović. THE TERAZIJE FOUNTAIN (TERAZIJSKA ČESMA) This was erected in 1860 during the second reign of Miloš Obrenović and is the work of an Italian master. In 1911 it was moved to Topčider and placed at the entrance to the Topčider Church (Topčiderska crkva), but was returned to Terazije in 1975 where it now remains as a monument and fountain. The Terazije Fountain Nikola Pašić Square NIKOLA PAŠIĆ SQUARE (TRG NIKOLE PAŠIĆA) Nikola Pašić Square is located between Terazije, Bulevar kralja Aleksandra and Dečanska, and is the newest of the Belgrade squares. It was built in 1953 when the fountain was installed. In the first half of the 19th century this was an empty field which was dissected by the Constantinople highway. This part of the road was gradually turned into the street which was initially called Sokače kod "Zlatnog topa" ("Alley by the 'Golden Cannon'") after the nearby inn) and then Markova ulica. Not far from where the Federal Assembly now stands, at the top of Vlajkovićeva street, was one of the largest Turkish mosques, the Batal Mosque (Batal‐džamija), which was demolished in 1869. The planned development of the Square began after the Second World War, when the old buildings were demolished, the tram terminus relocated, a fountain installed and the fences around the former UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE
FACULTY OF PHILOSOPHY
Palace Garden and the Federal Assembly removed and a large number of new buildings constructed, including the Trade Union House (Dom sindikata) and the building of the City Administration. This square was for a long time known as Marx and Engels Square (Trg Marksa i Engelsa). Monument to Nikola Pašić (Spomenik Nikoli Pašiću) This was unveiled in 1998 on the square which bears the name of this great Serbian statesman. It is the work of the sculptor Zoran Ivanović. SLAVIJA SQUARE Slavija is not just the name of the square but a title that signifies a part of Belgrade, a space between Kralja Milana, Beogradska, Makenzijeva, Svetosavska, Bulevar oslobođenja, Deligradska and Nemanjina. All these seven streets meet at Slavija Square and make it a main traffic junction. This roundabout, which vehicles approach from all directions, is a real test for inexperienced drivers. Until the 1880's this square was just a muddy pond where the people of Belgrade used to hunt wild duck. When a Scotsman Francis Mackenzie, a well‐known businessman, bought the large plot of land above the square and split it up to sell it, the square began to take shape. For a time the square was named after Dimitrije Tucović, a distinguished leader in the Serbian socialist movement, whose bust stands in the middle of the square. On the square are the hotels Slavija and Slavija Lux and the Jat Airways terminal. BOTANIC GARDEN Address: Takovska 43, Phone: 3244‐847, 3244‐498, The Botanic Garden is open for visitors from 1st May to 1st November from 09.00 to 19.00. The Jevremovac Botanic Garden is a department of the Faculty of Biology of Belgrade University. It was opened in 1874 by the Ministry of Education of the Kingdom of Serbia, at the suggestion of Josif Pančić, who was also its first curator. In 1889 King Milan Obrenović presented his estate (which he had inherited from his grandfather Jevrem) to the Belgrade University to be used as a Botanic garden, on condition that it be called Jevremovac. It is still in the same place today under the same name. The Botanic Garden stretches over approximately 5 hectares, and contains more than 250 species of trees and shrubs, domestic, European and exotic plants growing out in the open, and the total plant stock today is made up of about 500 trees, shrubs and other plants. Apart from the outdoor beds, the Botanic Garden also contains a greenhouse and the offices of the Institute of Botany (administration department, herbarium, library, lecture hall, laboratories. A special attraction of the Botanic Garden is the Japanese Garden. The Greenhouse, which was erected in 1892, covers an area of almost 500m2. At the time that it was built it was one of the largest and most beautiful greenhouses in this part of Europe. Numerous species of tropical and subtropical plants are grown in the Greenhouse of which the most significant are: Phoenix Canariensis, Chamaerops Humilis and Cereus Peruvinianus.The Herbarium houses a rich collection of plants from the Balkans and all over Europe amounting to 120,000 herbarium sheets and over 300,000 dried specimens. The Library is one of the oldest and most extensive in this part of the world. Apart from 200 scientific and professional journals it contains more than 6,000 books. UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE

VINČA The Vinča suburb is about 14 kilometres (9 miles) from Belgrade on the Belgrade‐Smederevo road and is widely renowned for its sites of exceptional archaeological interest. The prehistoric site of Belo brdo is right on the banks of the Danube and is a site known internationally for the remains of a large Neolithic settlement found there, in a cultural layer 10.5 m (34.5 ft) deep and covering an area of nearly 10 hectares (25 acres). During the excavations, which were begun in 1908 by Dr Miloje Vasić of the Faculy of Philosophy, Belgrade University, a large number of dwellings were unearthed, along with the remains of the material culture of prehistoric man. Each of the layers that have accumulated, and which mark the individual phases of life in Vinča (covering the period from about 4500 BC to 3200 BC) contains a veritable treasure trove of the most diverse artefacts: tools and weapons of stone and bone, everyday domestic vessels, richly decorated ritual vases, a large quantity of figurines in the shape of humans and animals in exceptionally striking style, jewellery of various rare types and expensive materials and countless other articles and works of art produced at Vinča itself or brought in from distant parts ‐ from Central Europe, the lower Danube region and the Mediterranean. The articles unearthed can now be viewed in the National Museum, Belgrade City Museum (Muzej grada Beograda) and in the Vinča Collection at the Faculty of Philosophy. Around the year 4000 BC the Vinča culture covered an area larger than that of any Neolithic culture in Europe. Individual settlements were large both in size and population, not only larger than all other Neolithic settlements of the same period, but also larger than the first towns which sprang up considerably later in Mesopotamia, the Aegean and Egypt. The Vinča culture had reached its peak of development by 3800 BC and continued until the emergence of societies that developed new economic and social relationships based on animal husbandry and copper and gold smelting.The Belo brdo archaeological site is open throughout the year for organised visits, and the Belgrade Tourist Organization organises regular tours. BULEVAR KRALJA ALEKSANDRA In the middle of the 18th century the Constantinople highway ran where the Bulevar Kralja Aleksandra now is. Little by little, the highway became a street which was originally called Sokače kod Zlatnog topa. Later on, the name was changed to Markova street, and after 1834 it was given the name Fišeklija ('fišek' ‐ paper‐twist), after the wooden shops selling twists of gunpowder. At the end of the 19th century it became Kralja Aleksandra Obrenovića, and after the Second World War Bulevar oslobođenja and Bulevar revolucije until finally, at the beginning of the 21st century, the old name of Bulevar kralja Aleksandra was restored. When Belgrade people talk about the 'Bulevar', they mean this street, which is also the longest street in the city. On this street are the Faculty of Law, School of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil Engineering as well as the University Library. MONUMENT TO NIKOLA TESLA Address: Bulevar kralja Aleksandra 73) The monument was erected in 1961 in memory of the great scientist of Serbian origin, one of the most important inventors in the field of electrical engineering and physics. It is the work of the sculptor Fran Kršinić. UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE

MONUMENT TO SVETOZAR MARKOVIĆ Address: Bulevar kralja Aleksandra 71 The monument was erected in 1946 to the founder of socialism in Serbia and is the work of the sculptor Stevan Bodnarov. TAŠMAJDAN This place was for centuries used as a quarry, and this is the origin of its name (from Turkish 'taş' ‐ stone, and 'majdan' ‐ a place where stone is quarried) The prehistoric inhabitants of Belgrade as they dug out their caves deep in the Tašmajdan cliff formed catacombs and stone galleries with regularly spaced tunnels. From time to time, tours of this unique Belgrade underworld are organised. This was once the site of a Roman necropolis, and it was also used as a Turkish cemetery until the end of the 19th century. On the 30th November 1830 the Sultan's edict ('hatiserif') relating to the internal independence of Serbia was read out in Tašmajdan. Tašmajdan Park as it is today was laid out in the first years after the Second World War. Today on Tašmajdan or around it are the Church of Saint Mark (crkva Svetog Marka) (a new building erected in 1931‐36) the Russian Church (Ruska crkva) (1924), the Main Post Office, Tašmajdan Sports Centre, the Hotels Taš and Metropol, the Madera bar, the building of Radio Television of Serbia (of which the main section was hit during the NATO bombing) and a children's amusement park. VRAČAR The name Vračar and Vračarsko polje (Vračar Field) appear for the first time in 1492 in the Turkish plan for the conquest of Belgrade. At the order of the Turkish Vizier Sinan Pascha, the remains of Saint Sava, the first Archbishop, were burned at Vračar on 27th April 1594 (old calendar), thereby defining Vračar as the future centre of Serbian spirituality. The Cathedral of Saint Sava (Hram Svetog Save) has now been erected on this site. During the First Serbian Uprising in 1806, Karađorđe's insurgents defeated the Turks in Vračarsko polje. That same year the Codex of Prota Mateja Nenadović, the first written law in insurrectionist Serbia, was promulgated. In the 19th century Vračar was split into east and west Vračar, the boundary being what is now Kralja Milana street. During the 1880's this was an outer suburb of Belgrade. Today Vračar is the most heavily populated municipality in Belgrade and an elite residential area. Its boundaries are defined by three boulevards: Bulevar kralja Aleksandra, Bulevar oslobođenja and Južni bulevar. The National Library of Serbia, the Nikola Tesla Museum and the Belgrade Drama Theatre are all in Vračar. A special feature of Vračar is the local bars, although they are gradually disappearing.

MONUMENT TO KARAĐORĐE (VRAČARSKI PLATO) This was unveiled in 1985 in memory of Đorđe Petrović Karađorđe, leader of the First Serbian Uprising, on the site of his camp from where the insurgents set out in 1806 to capture Belgrade. It is the work of the sculptor Sreten Stojanović. MONUMENT TO THE LIBERATORS OF BELGRADE 1806 (KARAĐORĐEV PARK) This first public monument in Belgrade was erected in 1848. ZEMUN Once a separate town, Zemun has since 1945 been a municipality within the city of Belgrade. As far back as the Neolithic Age, men built settlements here, taking advantage of its favourable position on the banks of the Danube and Sava. During the 3rd century BC this area was settled by a Celtic tribe known as the Scordisci who called it Taurunum. With the arrival of the Slavs the name of Zemun first appears, after the sunken earth houses (zemunice) that the first inhabitants of this settlement lived in. The history of Zemun as a town in the modern sense of the word begins in 1717 with the arrival of the Austrians and its inclusion in the Hapsburg Monarchy. It became an important defence against the Turks and developed as an economic and trading centre at the border of the empire. This strengthened the position of Zemun as a cultural centre, and had an especially favourable influence on the Serbs who were then under Turkish rule. By 1910 the town numbered 17,000 inhabitants. The majority were involved in agriculture, while a quarter were employed as craftsmen and factory workers. Around 1920, Zemun had a population in excess of 30,000, of varying nationalities. Just under half were Serbs, almost one third Germans, and one fifth Croats. Zemun Fortress The Fortress is the oldest building in Zemun and is mentioned as early as the 9th and 11th centuries. The remains that can be seen today date from the 15th century. In the centre of the fortifications is the Millennium Tower, which was erected by the Hungarian authorities in 1896 and restored in 1962. It is also known as the Tower of Sibinjanin Janko (Kula Sibinjanina Janka). The House with the Sundial (Kuća sa sunčanim satom) Address: Dubrovačka 2.

Today it is a museum housing an ethnographic collection. THE OLD PALACE The Old Palace, which was the home of the Serbian Obrenović dynasty was built between 1882 and 1884 and designed by the architect Aleksandar Bugarski in the Academic style of the 19th century. It was built with the intention of surpassing all the previous residences of Serbian rulers, for use by the newly created Kingdom of Serbia with King Milan Obrenović as head of state. After reconstruction following the heavy damaged suffered during both world wars the appearance of the Palace differs significantly from the original design. From 1903 to 1914 the Palace was the residence of the Karađorđević dynasty. From 1919 to 1920, sessions of the interim National Assembly were held there and right up until 1941 it was used for court entertainment and receptions for high ranking foreign visitors. Renovation after the Second World War took until 1947, after which it housed, in turn, the Presidium of the National Assembly, the government offices of the Federal National Republic of Yugoslavia, the Federal Executive Council, UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE

AVALA Avala is the mountain located 17 km from the centre of Belgrade, on the road towards Kragujevac. The top is on 511 m, and the name "avala" originates from the Arabian word "havala" which means the "belvedere". This name is a good choice, as there is a fantastic view on surrounding area from the top of Avala. The natural complex of Avala is protected since 1859. The mountain is overgrown with deciduous and conifer forest and represents the northern end of Šumadija hills, which are the watershed between basins of rivers Sava and Danube. Avala has always been attractive for settling. Even in the Roman period on the top of the mountain there was military garrison. In the medieval times here was Serbian town Žrnov, which controlled the entrance to Belgrade. The ruins of Žrnov were removed in 1934. On that location in 1938 was erected the mausoleum ‐ Monument dedicated to the Unknown Hero, a masterpiece by famous sculptor Ivan Meštrović. Up to Avala the name was given to avalit, mineral that was excavated on this mountain. Here used to be a mercury mine. Due to the closeness to the capital city and natural beauty, Avala is considered to be one of the most popular excursion places of Belgrade inhabitants as well as of numerous tourists. Monument dedicated to the Unknown Hero A large number of graves of Serbian soldiers was found after the Second World War. Among them was one grave of unknown hero. The inhabitants from the surrounding villages have built the modest monument dedicated to this unknown hero in 1922. After several years (1934 ‐ 1938), this monument was replaced with more representative one, and placed on the top of Avala. Design for the granite monument, in the form of mausoleum with caryatides that represent women in traditional costumes from all parts of Yugoslavia, was made by sculptor Ivan Meštrović. The granite for the monument has been excavated from the remains of the medieval town Žrnov. Near the mausoleum there is a monument dedicated to Soviet war veterans that died in plane accident on October 19, 1964. In the crash of Russian plane “Iljusin‐18” (that crashed on Avala) all passengers died, including the delegation of the Soviet Army with Marshal Sergej Birjuzov. The delegation was coming to participate in celebration of 20th anniversary of Belgrade liberation. Avala Tower Avala TV tower was constructed in 1965, on the lower Avala peak, based on project of the architects Uglješa Bogdanović and Slobodan Janjić. This has been the highest construction in former Yugoslavia. It was bombed on April 29, 1999. The construction of the new tower, was completed in 2010. At the bottom of mountain Avala there is a lake Pariguz, and on the top several tourist objects: the “Avala” hotel, mountaineering home “Mitrovićev dom” and mountaineering house “Čapanićev brest”. On the mountain slopes there are numerous walking paths as well as the paths suitable for mountain‐bike. Since 2006 here is held the traditional gathering of the mountaineers, where you can UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE

This remains of former Danube wetlands is unique nature element in the centre of the city of Belgrade and protected as the “common good with extraordinary natural values” under the joint name “Big War Island”. The island is located between two historic cores, the Belgrade fortress and Zemun fortification from middle‐
age. It is the important element of historical frame and spatial identity of Belgrade and Zemun. On the gravures from the XIV century the Island was showed as a smaller sand shelf, later divided by a water channel. It was called the Danube Island ‐ Danubius Insel, and later the Roma Island ‐ Zigeuner Insel. The area of War Island is 211 ha. There are three protection zones: the zone of nature protection (it has a character of a special nature reserve and comprises the coastal zone), the recreation zone (comprises the inner parts of the island) and the tourist zone (the beach "Lido"). The War Island was proclaimed in April 2005 for a natural asset with extraordinary characteristics by the City Assembly. It is protected for preserving the landscape characteristics and biotopes of natural rarities, rare and endangered birds, and for protection of the representative morphological and geological creation – the river island itself. The Institute for Nature Protection of Serbia categorised the Island as the important natural asset of III category. Up to the international classification (IUCN) Big War Island is the IV category – “biotopes and other governed areas”. The Big War Island is on the list of important ornithology European areas. You can come to the Island only by water, while during the bathing season there is also a pontoon bridge from the Zemun quay. The Island is popular due to "Lido", the most popular Belgrade beach after Ada Ciganlija. HYDE PARK Hyde park is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, between the streets Bulevar mira, Topčiderski venac and Bulevar Vojvode Putnika. Park spreads over area of around 7.2 ha, and it was named up to the famous park in London. Hyde park represents a natural extension of parks Košutnjak and Topčider. The contemporary outlook of Hyde park dates from 1930s. One part of the park was damaged in the period of huge construction works in this area (the construction of railway station "Prokop", and afterwards the Boulevard for the "Kuća cveća"). The central alee (sycamore avenue) divides the park on two parts. The west part looks more like a city‐forest with paths and trees, while the eastern part is arranged like a park. There is a lot of walking paths, benches, pavilions, trim path (along the new stone path; with new wooden devices for excercises), two fountains and new children’s playground in the park. In the neighbourhood there is building of former Memorial Centre "Josip Broz Tito", the Monastery Vavedenje, as well as numerous residential apartments. Walking the dog is allowed only with muzzle. It is forbidden to make a fire. UNIVERSITY OF BELGRADE
