Beograđanka (Serbian Cyrillic: Београђанка, pronounced , literally: the Belgrade Lady), officially Belgrade Palace (Serbian: Палата Београд, Palata Beograd, ) is a modern high-rise building in the Belgrade downtown area. It is 101 m (331 ft) tall. It is situated on the crossroads of Kralja Milana, Resavska and Masarikova Streets.

History

The building was designed by architect Branko Pešić, not to be confused with the former mayor of Belgrade by the same name. Construction began in 1969 and was completed five years later in 1974.

The building is located in the heart of old city center, stretching from Terazije to Slavija Square, with an emphasized aspiration to dominate with its high 24-story part as the city's reference point.

The top floor also features a restaurant. However, the restaurant has been closed since the 1990s for safety reasons.

Tenants

The building is almost completely owned and operated by the City of Belgrade. The first several stories are occupied by the "Beograd" department store; on the other floors offices of Studio B (city-owned TV and radio station) and Happy TV station are located. On the other floors, there are business premises, as well as the head offices of IKEA for Serbia and other Belgrade media are also located in the building. Blic daily still has some offices in Beograđanka although they have moved most of their business to a new building. The ground floor features a Robne kuće Beograd store. As of June 2012, the basement floor is occupied by a Mercator retail store.

Renovation

The city of Belgrade plans to renovate the buildings exterior facade, reconstruct the main entrance and reopen the restaurant on the top floor.
