Kralja Petra street is a jewel on its own – the cobalt stones, the location and its old stores making perfume, new ones making the best ice cream in town, the historical buildings and its proximity to the most important parts of Belgrade.
And if that was not enough to make you go there, you also have these windows to the past in the form of photographs of the people that lived in Belgrade mostly in the 19th and the 20th century. You can see how they dressed, where they lived, who they posed in photos with and etc. And all of that without entering a gallery or a museum, because these photographs are put on the facades of the buildings in Kralja Petra.
The location where the photo was made, the name of the photograph, the century and a little info in the bottom telling you that this is from the archives of the City Museum of Belgrade is all below the photograph. There’s nothing more that could tell you that this is a part of an exhibition, how long it will be there for (it’s not coming down any time soon), and to be honest, you don’t need it.
So, take a stroll from the top to the bottom of Kralja Petra and look on your left – there are some photographs there.
