  Building of Demokratska Stranka

Krunska ulica is probably my favorite street in Belgrade. I love this street for its tranquillity, beautiful architecture of the buildings that line it and its many trees. In fact, Krunska ulica is the very first street in Belgrade to have two rows of trees lining it. The double row of trees was planted in 1903.

Krunska ulica like many other streets in Belgrade changed its name many times. In 1872, when the streets in Belgrade were named for the first time this street got the name that it is known by today Krunska. Krunska roughly translates as belonging to the Crown. The street got the name since it started from the gardens of the Crown Palace. Then for a while it was known as Gospodara Jevrema in honour of the brother of Knez Milos. It was also named Knjeginje Perside in honour of the wife of Knez Aleksandra Karadjordjevica. Following WWII, from 1946 to 1951 it was called Moskovska and up until 1997 it was known as Proleterskih brigada.

Many old and interesting buildings are located in Krunska. The picture to the right shows the building that houses Demokratska Stranka (Democratic Party). Their building is nicely renovated and includes a club on the lower level. But due to security around the building this is not a place where you can just walk in and take a look. You can, however, easily admire the building from the street.
