Tasmajdan Park
Tasmajdan Park
Description

The word tašmajdan means rock quarry or rocky field in Turkish, therefore the entire neighbourhood, with the quarry itself, was named Tašmajdan.

A graveyard was formed in the area during the eighteen-twenties, remaining there until 1886.

 Tašmajdan was designed as a city park by the general urbanist plan from 1950, with a sports and recreation centre at its lower end. The initial plans for part of the park were drawn by the architect Aleksandar Đorđević, while the horticultural plans were drawn by the engineer Vladeta Đorđević. The construction of the water cascades was cancelled during the works, replaced by floor greenery that represents the main motif of the park today.

Pioneer Park

 The Pioneer Park is located in the very heart of the city. The field where the park is located was a barren and swampy environment during the early 19th century, covered in bulrush. The grounds were purchased by one of the more prominent persons in Serbia at the end of the eighteen-thirties, Stojan Simić, who constructed the house later to be named the Old Residence. It was sold thereafter, along with the gardens, to the state, to be repurposed as the court of Prince Alexander Karageorgevich.  The New Court was erected during the early decades of the 20th century, based...
