CocaCola sign on a socialist dream in Blokovi Belgrad, Serbia
€18,00 – €52,00
New Belgrade alone is enormous and there is more than enough to see to fill a full day.
It is easy to explore. The socialist dream of large-scale socialist architecture and urban planning was all about building strong, authentic communities.
However, after the breakup of Yugoslavia and the end of its socialist dream, the buildings that had brought these communities together are themselves falling apart.
There is very little funding given for their maintenance. Many facades are in extremely poor condition. Just as Brutalist Belgrade is surfing a wave of positive international attention, its concrete creations are crumbling.
