When someone in Belgrade says that they'll meet you by the statue, you can be assured that they're talking about Piazza della Repubblica, in Stari Grad, the nerve centre of the city. This is where the pedestrianised shopping street of Knez Mihajlova begins, leading to the Fortezza, and the beautiful surrounding park. This is where public demonstrations and events take place, overlooked by the Theatre and the National Museum. The famous statue is a monument to Prince Mihailo III. Just one hundred metres away is another important city square, Piazza Terazije.
