Belgrade on water

"A waterfront is not just a body of water. It’s the flow of memory - the origin of the city itself," said Daniel Libeskind as he presented his vision for the redevelopment of Belgrade’s riverside in 2008.

Serbia’s capital could certainly do with a reminder that it has - potentially - one of the most spectacular waterfronts in Europe. Only connoisseurs of dusty concrete works, dilapidated goods railways and decaying riverboats are likely to appreciate the walk along the Danube and Sava promenade.

That may change if Belgrade On Water - a new billion-euro project proposed by a UAE property developer - comes into fruition. Remaining industrial detritus from behind the main railway station will go. In will come parks, retail space and the city’s tallest tower. 

Passenger trains and buses will be shifted to new terminuses. But critics argue the bidding process has not been transparent. (what else is new in capitalist-oriented projects?).
