With its “many arts from one centre” formula, attractive location in the very heart of Belgrade, within the protected pedestrian, cultural and historical zone of Knez Mihailova Street, with the most beautiful view onto the main city square – The Republic Square – and many adequate facilities – café, bookstore and Belgrade souvenir shop – the Cultural Centre of Belgrade is a must visit when you are in the city; it is active and dynamic creator and always present backbone of Belgrade cultural life, whose activities connect this European capital city with numerous spots on the cultural map of the world.
The Centre is a real home to all arts but the theatrical one, but it is often present in its alternative form within the activities of this polyvalent programme house of art and culture.
Exhibitions of contemporary art, film projections, concerts, literary programmes, lectures, workshops, debates, conferences, happenings, etc. are interlaced every day within this unique multipurpose facilities complex on over 2,000 m² – situated in the three-side facing building of the Press House, a typical example of Serbian 1950s architecture – but often around the Centre as well.
Within the Centre, comprised of
• the Art Gallery (120 m²)
• the Artget Gallery (280 m²)
• the movie theatre with a foyer and a café (747 m²)
• the Belgrade Window (a bookstore, a café, a souvenir shop) (565 m²)
• the office of Belgrade Tourist Organization (TOB) (340 m²)
• studios and stock rooms (305 m²)
• offices and auxiliary premises (366 m²)
most of more than 300 programmes take place over a year. But, diversity and size of the projects often require different and larger spaces than these ones, thus presence of the Centre can be sensed at numerous squares and streets of the city, at the alternative buildings and spaces atypical for art and culture, as well as in other cultural institutions, other towns and cities in Serbia and the region, and more and more all around Europe.
Founder and patron of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade is the City of Belgrade.
