Woodrow Wilson Boulevard: Everything you need in one place, in the heart of the city

Building the most modern quarter in Serbia and transforming the righ bank of the Sava into a gem of the Serbian capital, Belgrade Waterfront didn’t forget to preserve the memory of old Belgrade and pay respect to numerous historical figures who, with their immortal deeds,embedded themselves in the foundations of our country, freedom and culture.

Main street in Belgrade Waterfront is thus named after the 28th president of the United States of America, who was also remembered in history as a great friend of Serbia. Thanks to its central position, Woodrow Wilson Boulevard has become the „lifeblood“ of this neighborhood. Who was this statesman and why is he so important to our history?

Belgrade Waterfront and its streets

Thomas Woodrow Wilson was the president of the USA from 1913 to 1921, and after the end of the First World War he played a major role in creating a new international order. As one of the most prominent figures of the Paris Peace Conference, Wilson supported the creation of the SHS Kingdom, and thanks to his friendship with Mihajlo Pupin, he showed undisguised sympathy for the Serbian people.

This could best be seen during the commemoration of the 4th anniversary of the Austro-Hungarian declaration of war on Serbia, on July 28, 1918, when Wilson proclaimed „Serbian Day“ in the USA, and when the Serbian flag flew proudly along the US’ flag on top of the White House as a sign of rememberance to the heroic sacrifice our country in the Great War.

Woodrow Wilson Boulevard begins at the roundabout near Karadjordjeva Street, and ends at Vojvoda Misic Boulevard. It is 40 metres wide, has three lanes in each direction, as well as a 3-metre wide two-way bicycle path, while in the middle of this almost 2-kilometre-long street, in a dividing island 5 metres wide, there is a row of trees with maple, hornbeam seedlings and other types of trees. Each tree is illuminated with energy-efficient LED lighting, so an evening walk or drive along the Boulevard is a real pleasure in every sense.

The plants in the planters along the Boulevard, as well as in the rest of Belgrade Waterfront, are changed four times a year, so regardless of when you visit the most modern neighborhood in Serbia, it is always refreshed with new colors.

In addition to connecting two green oases by the Sava – St. Nicholas Park, which will soon get a new appearance, and Sava Park, which stretches along the Boulevard – it is also the address of Galerija, the largest shopping, entertainment and gastronomic destination in the region, and in the close future, it will also lead to the new market in the immediate vicinity of Gazela.
