  Pasic Square fountain
by Prasnjavi

The square lies between Terazije, King Aleksandar's Boulevard and Decanska Saint It is the "youngest" Belgrade square built in 1953 along with the central fountain.

In the first half of 19th century this was an empty meadow with the so-called Constantinople road running through it. This stretch of the road gradually evolved into a street. First it used to be called Alley by the Golden Cannon, because of a near-by tavern that bore that name. Then it became Mark's Street. Not far from the Federal Parliament building, at the beginning of VlajkoviŠeva Street, once stood Batal Mosque - one of the largest Turkish mosques in Belgrade. It was demolished in 1869.

The square started taking shape in the architectural and urban planning sense after World War II. Old buildings had been demolished, and the streetcar turntable was dislocated. Fences in front of the former court and in front the Federal Parliament had been removed. The fountain and many new buildings had been built: the Union Hall, the Municipal Assembly, the Investment Bank. For decades the plaza was called Marx and Engels Square.
