The Tanjug news agency and the Belgrade City Assembly organized a photo exhibition titled “Vremenska kapija Beograda" (Belgrade Time Gate), which will be staged at six locations across the Belgrade downtown from Saturday until August 17.
The theme of the exhibition, a collection of photographs taken from Tanjug's archives, is Belgrade's urban development.
The black-and-white images that will be displayed on panels depict a number of important buildings and parts of the city the way they looked a few decades earlier, including the Republic Square, Prince Mihailo Street, Terazije Square, Square of Nikola Pasic, the corner of King Milan and Prince Milos Streets and Kalemegdan Park.
Interesting enough, the photographs will be displayed at the very places where they were originally taken in the period between the two World Wars and during and after World War II, excluding the images showing Kalemegdan Park.
The central part of the exhibition, consisting of 36 large size images, will be set up in front of the Cvijeta Zuzoric Art Pavillion at Kalemegdan Park.
A description in the Serbian and English languages will accompany each photograph. The Tourist Organization of Belgrade has included the exhibition in its tourist offering.
