ARCH ON TOUR 18_BELGRAD

OCTOBER 26-29, 2017

Concept and moderation: Marion Kuzmany / ARCH ON TOUR in cooperation with Jelica Jovanovic, DoCoMoMo Serbia / Association of Belgrade Architects

Guided tours: Jelica Jovanovic; as well as other architects and experts in numerous buildings, galleries and museums on site

Tour operator: Mondial GmbH & Co. KG

 

With the beginning of winter time, ARCH ON TOUR escapes on a southern detour

Downstream of the Danube to the confluence of the Sava on the Belgrade banks, which are still warm in summer. Starting from Isay Weinfeld's 5 * Square Nine Hotel in the old town, we will explore the white city between historical locations and icons of modernity together with the Belgrade architectural historian Jelica Jovnovic. We visit the best examples of brutalist post-war architecture and look forward to exciting new developments and special interiors by contemporary architects, designers and artists. Last but not least, there is also time for relaxation in the elegant spa area of our hotel, for individual strolls in the city and exploring the chic nightlife behind morbid facades.
