There are 32 squares in total in Belgrade, many of which were used for markets at one point in the past. This photo of a bench made from the tree that once stood in its location is the Akademski Square, also commonly referred to as the Studentski Square. Everyone I met so far knows this place to be the students square however, if I understand correctly, the student square used to be in an adjacent area that is now a major bus stop.

This particular square does however, have a diverse history; having once been a place of prayer surrounded by mosques, a graveyard and an open market space at different times and centuries. Today, it is located across the street from the University of Belgrade and is a popular hangout spot for students.
