Terazije fountain

Between Hotel Moskva and Hotel Balkan Belgrade Serbia. It represents one of the most important monuments of 19th century Belgrade. It was moved to Topčider during work on regulating Terazije in 1911-1912. It stood there until 1976, when it was returned to its old spot.

Belgrade was never lacking for water because of its rivers. Drinking fountains were an integral part of the city from the earliest days and they served as important meeting places for the citizens of Belgrade in the past.

Public drinking fountains can be found in numerous places in Belgrade, some struggling against the centuries, some brand new and polished. Belgrade has 39 public drinking fountains with potable water piped from the Belgrade waterworks. Five fountains were built on springs. Belgrade also has 18 ornamental fountains.
