Banovo Brdo

Banovo Brdo

Banovo Brdo (Serbian Cyrillic: Баново Брдо) is an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Čukarica.

Banovo Brdo generally stretches along the Požeška street, the main street connecting the central parts of the Belgrade with the southwestern boroughs and suburbs (most notably, Žarkovo, Labudovo Brdo, Petlovo Brdo, etc) and itself is the initial part of the Požeška street-Trgovačka street direction which continues into the Ibarska magistrala (Highway of Ibar), one of the major roads in western Serbia.

Banovo Brdo is bounded by the neighborhoods of Čukarica from the west, Ada Ciganlija and Careva Ćuprija from the north, Topčider and Košutnjak from the east and Žarkovo and Julino Brdo from the south. Eastern parts of Banovo Brdo make two sub-neighborhoods, Golf Naselje and Sunčana Padina.

Since the 1980s, the Požeška street became one of the busiest streets in the city, gradually developing into one of the most prosperous trading and commercial parts of Belgrade. The uniqueness of Banovo Brdo lies in the fact that it functions as a city within a city, with its own walking zone, park and commercial area.

In the second half of the XIX century, an author and diplomat, native of Dubrovnik- Matija Ban (1818-1903) bought an estate on the location of the present Banovo Brdo. After his family name, his estate became known as "Banovac", which later gave name to the whole neighborhood that developed on the hill around it (Banovo Brdo = Ban's Hill). The population of the local community ("mesna zajednica") of Banovo Brdo was 5,887 in 2002, but the population of the neighborhood which comprises several other local communities was 20,976.
