What is New Belgrade known for?

II ended, that the ground was broken on a huge construction project, which would give birth to what is known today as New Belgrade. Buildings sprung up one after another and by 1952, New Belgrade was officially a municipality. In 1955 the municipality of Bežanija was annexed to New Belgrade. It was for years the biggest construction site in Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia and a huge source of pride for country's communist authorities that oversaw the project. During first

architectural approach

, as fast as possible, in order to accommodate a displaced and growing post World War II population that was in the middle of a baby boom (Post-WW2 baby boom). This across-the-board brutalist architectural approach (brutalist) led to many apartment buildings and even entire residential blocks looking monumental in an awkward way. Although the problem has been alleviated to certain extent in recent decades by addition of some modern expansion (Hyatt (Hyatt Regency Belgrade) and Intercontinental hotels, luxury Genex condos (condominium), Ušće Tower, Belgrade Arena, Delta City, etc.), many still complain about what they see as New Belgrade's "grayness" and "drabness". They often use the derisive term "spavaonica" ("dormitory") to underscore their view of New Belgrade as a place that does not inspire creative living nor encourage healthy human interaction, and is only good for overnight sleep at the end of the hard day's work. This opinion has found its way into Serbian pop culture as well. In an early 1980s track called 'Neću da živim u Bloku 65', popular Serbian band Riblja čorba sings about a depressed individual who hates the world because he's surrounded by the concrete of New Belgrade, while a more recent local cinematic trend sees New Belgrade presented somewhat clumsily as the Serbian version of New York ghettos (Ghetto#United States) like those found in Harlem, Brooklyn and The Bronx. The most obvious example of the latter would be 2002 movie ''1 na 1'', which portrays a bunch of Serbian teenagers who rap, shoot guns, play street basketball and seem to blame many of their woes on living in New Belgrade. Other films like ''Apsolutnih 100'' and ''The Wounds (The Wounds (film))'' also implicitly paint New Belgrade in the negative light but they have a more coherent point of view and place their stories within the context of the 1990s when war and international isolation truly did push some Serbs, including those inhabiting New Belgrade, to desperate acts. Twin towns – Sister cities New Belgrade is twinned (Twin towns and sister cities) with the following cities and municipalities: '''Sava Centar''' (Serbian Cyrillic: ''Сава центар'') is an international congress, cultural and business centre of various multi-functional activities located in New Belgrade, Serbia. It is the largest audience hall in the country and entire former Yugoslavia (SFRY). It has been host to numerous large scale events and performances. History The construction of the biggest congress and performance hall in Yugoslavia (as called back then - now Serbia) started in 1976. The hall would be located in the new construction area of the city of Belgrade, New Belgrade. In those years the capital of Belgrade spread across the rivers of the Sava and Danube to construct a modern alternative to the historical city. The complete construction of the project took three years, until 1979, and was headed by chief designer and team manager Stojan Maksimović. Most of the construction took place in 1977 when the skeleton of the building was complete. Supporting architecture such as roads and highways were also built during this period around the Sava Centar complex. '''Aleksandar "Aca" Šapić''' (Serbian Cyrillic (Serbian Cyrillic alphabet): Александар Шапић - Аца; born 1 June 1978 in Belgrade, Serbia) is a Serbian politician and a retired water polo player.
