Terazije square

Until the middle of 19th century the area from the Sremska until the King Milan's street where the Terazije square is today, was outside the town walls and was covered in swamps. In order to avoid the mixing of Serbian and Turkish population, duke Milos Obrenovic ordered Serbian craftsmen to settle close to today's square.
The name Terazije originates from the high water delivery towers that the Turks called the water terazije (the balance). At the place of one of the water towers, in 1860 the Terazije square water fountain was erected in the memory of duke Milos Obrenovic. The square was rearranged in 1911 and 1912 and a fountain was erected as well as the flower areas in the middle of the square.

The Krsmanović's house (built in 1885) where the unity of Serbia, Croatian and Slovenia was proclaimed in 1 December 1818, the "Moscow" hotel and the Anker palace are al at this square.
