Rising New Belgrade

This used to be a swamp, then a meadow where we used to play like kids...
Now is building by the building. Concrete and nothing more.
No playgrounds, sport courts or just a bench or two....

Little War Island or Malo Ratno Ostrvo

The island used to be significantly larger before the World War II. When construction of Novi Beograd began in 1948, the sand from the island was transported to the mainland by large conveyor belts and used for covering the swamp on which the new city was to be built. In the process, the island shrinked and sometimes is poetically said today that "Novi Beograd is a city on the island".

What's left of the island is basically a thin strip of land, less than 300 meters long and 60 meters wide. The island is completely covered by vegetation (poplar trees) and inaccessible for visitors, but can be nicely observed from the barges-restaurants on the Danube's bank.
