Belgrade, Serbia

Population: 1.6 Million

Belgrade is Serbia’s capital and largest city. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers. Belgrade’s urban planning has green ambitions; it has designated specific areas in the city intended as future public green space.

CLEVER Cities plans

Belgrade intends to transform the area around the Dorćol railway, located between 1980s housing blocks and a former industrial estate, from being a neglected area with security issues to a green corridor for locals to enjoy. The plan is to learn from Milan’s experience of transforming the area around the railway in its CLEVER Action Lab. Additionally Belgrade will set up a local competition for the redesign of the area.


By implementing CLEVER Cities nature-based solutions, Belgrade aims to reduce crime and security issues and improve public health in the Dorćol area.
