The street extending from Boulevard Vojislavljevic to the south to Kolovrat Street, about 400 meters long, will be named European street.

A delegate l in the Municipal Assembly, Tijana Vidakovic, said that tradition and modern trends determined this proposal.

"It is because of all the differences that exist and create a coherent whole that I believe that this proposal is indirectly a form of preservation of national identity. This creates an inseparable blend of tradition and modern trends, but also of all the achievements that we are counting thanks to our policy and the steadfast European path," Vidakovic pointed out.
