DISCOVER THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE CAPITAL OF SOCIALIST YUGOSLAVIA FROM THE SEAT OF ITS 4-WHEELED DESIGN CLASSIC
New Belgrade is the part of the city built when Belgrade became the capital of Socialist Yugoslavia after WWII. Now it is like an open-air museum of socialist architecture and urban planning. Because it was the communist fashion to build long, impressive boulevards with large building blocks, the best way to discover this part of Belgrade is by car. And the best car to do so is the one build in the same era as the building: the Zastava 101! If you like the design, architecture and/or urban planning do not hesitate and let us show you the most notorious but also hidden places!
LET US GET YOU INSIDE THE MOST BRUTAL OF BRUTALIST BUILDINGS AND BE AMAZED BY YUGOSLAV FUTURISTIC DESIGN
ABOUT THE TOUR:
This 3-3.5 hours tour will pass a range of impressive examples of the Yugoslav architecture to be found in Belgrade. Apart from seeing buildings from the outside, we will also visit some from the inside. Architecture and history are closely connected, so the buildings you will see on this tour are the monuments themselves. In addition to that, you will get to the top of one of the highest buildings in Belgrade!
Also named the West Gate of Belgrade and one of the most impressive examples of Brutalist architecture in the world. The tallest building in Belgrade with on top the only rotating restaurant in the region (although it never really rotated…)
BLOK 61 / 62 / 63
The biggest ‘blokovi’ in New Belgrade make you feel very small. Besides just gazing up toward the buildings with its thousands of apartments in them we will drive zig-zag through the alleys underneath the flats to see the garages and improvised shops which were never planned by the planners!
Entering the Sava center means entering the future as it was perceived in 1977. It’s a one huge time-capsule still in fully original condition. There are serious plans to modernize the entire building so grab your chance to experience it while it lasts…
Please note that the Sava center is closed on Sundays, so we will not be able to go inside the center
EAST GATE / RUDO BUILDINGS
The tour ends on a high note, or even better; the highest one in Belgrade. We’ll go up to the top floor of the East Gate buildings, build on a hill on the outskirts of Belgrade, which provides an impressive few over the entire city you have just been discovering.
