This is the most famous pedestrian area in the entire Belgrade, leading straight into one of its most beloved attractions – the Kalemegdan park and fortress. It is the main walking street in Belgrade so naturally many high quality shops, cafes and restaurants can be found lining it. The area is always bustling with life and there is always something interesting to be seen such as street performances, museum exhibitions or gatherings which usually take place in Republic square near the very beginning of Knez Mihajlova.
It is also a great starting point for any tourist looking to get to know Belgrade as there is a tourist information office near Terazije square and also many tours of the city begin right here. Interesting buildings include: the old-town style block of private homes, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Greek Queen (one of the oldest preserved cafes in the center of Belgrade), Russian emperor (also an old-town style restaurant), Nikola Spasic endowment and passage, hotels Russia and Srpska Kruna, Goethe institute, Instituto Cervantes, Alliance francaise and many others.
