Belgrade Attractions - Belgrade received its first modern library in 1931. This opened a public, home and modern library in the capital, arranged according to the then most famous European libraries. In order to maintain such a system, professional library courses were started and a Reading Room for Children in Yugoslavia was opened. For a century before the library was founded, there was the Belgrade Reading Room or the first lending library of the City Hall of Gligorija Vozarović.
The building at the very end of Knez Mihailova Street houses the Belgrade City Library and has been looking at the Kalemegdan Park since 1986. In our history, the building of the present-day Library was once known as the Hotel "Serbian Crown", one of the first buildings in Knez Mihailova Street from the end of the 19th century. An interesting fact is that the library was officially opened by our poet Desanka Maksimovic. There are approximately two million units and 52 branches in its rich fund.
