This is one of Belgrade’s oldest, smallest and most charming neighborhoods. They call it the ‘Manhattan of Belgrade’. The quarter began to truly flourish under Turkish rule, when there many merchants set up shop here, mostly Shepardi Jews in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Today, the area around the Danube in Dorcol is considered to be the most beautiful place to live. You’d be well served just walking its streets, but there are many attractions to visit too. These include:
- The Marina
- Belgrade Fortress
- Student's Square,
- Despot Stefan Lazarevi
- Belgrade Zoo
- The Museum of Science and Technology
- Aleksandar Nevski Church
- The Old Jewish Museum
- Museum of Vuk and Dosite – dedicated to two great educators
- Ethnographic Museum
- Museum of Theatrical Arts
- Academic Park, a former Turkish graveyard
Dorcol is also famed for it’s fantastic nightlife (though it annoys the people who actually live there). Check out the Skadarlija and Strahinjia bana Street, which are full of great food, wine and people up for fun.
