- Studentski Trg
Studentski Trg or Students Square (Serbian
Cyrillic: Студентски Трг) is one of the central town squares and an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Stari Grad.
Studentski Trg is located halfway between the Republic Square (to the east) and the
Kalemegdanpark-fortress (to the west). It is adjacent to Akademski Park. To the north it extends into the neighborhood of (Upper) Dorćol, while the pedestrian zone of Knez Mihailovais located to the south.
Studentski Trg was projected as the first in a succession of squares around Belgrade's central route from Kalemegdan to Slavija: Studentski Trg-
Trg Republike- Terazije- Cvetni Trg-Slavija.
In time, Studentski Trg and Terazije pretty much lost their square functions, becoming streets, while Cvetni Trg, with final changes in early 2000s, is completely defunct as a traffic object. Studentski Trg is turned into the turning point and
terminal stationfor bus line number 31 and majority of Belgrade's trolleybuslines (19, 21, 22, 22L, 28, 29 and 41).
