INTERESTING ABOUT ZVEZDARA

Back in 1887, on a hill called Veliki Vračar.  an Astronomical observatory was founded. Soon after, the hill known as Veliki Vračar was renamed to Zvezdara ( In Serbian, Zvezda means star).

The first found writings about this area date back to the 16th century. On the territory of modern day Zvezdara, there is a street called Boulevard of King Aleksandar, which is known as the busiest street in Serbia. The name of the street has been changed a few times. It was known as the road to Tsargrad because it connected Belgrade ( then known as Singidunum) with Tsargrad.

Beneath the Zvezdara forest, while the Turks ruled Belgrade, there was a beautiful area known as ``Baba Ruža`s neighborhood``, which was decorated with various plants and flowers.

The territory of Zvezdara before the Second World War looked significantly different. At the time, the area was considered to be on the outskirts of the city. The area was populated with Czech people who were good musicians. They entertained the people of Belgrade, along with other German, Hungarian, Jewish and Russian families. Zvezdara, at the time, became known as a very cheerful part of town.

This ethnically diverse area had other advantages, other than fun. This was the neighborhood where the popular tramway number 6 drove through, connecting the people of Zvezdara with the centre of the city.

Today, Zvezdara is not considered to be a rural area. It is one of the most developed areas of the city, and it has preserved its inclusiveness to everyone. The natural beauties of Zvezdara are the Zvezdara forest, an excellent view of Belgrade, schools, faculties and theatres.
