Dorćol is the most prominent neighborhood of Belgrade. It is located in the municipality of Stari grad-Old town. It begins 700 meters north from Terazije, the central square of Belgrade. It is divided in a two sections: Upper Dorćol, which covers the area from Akademski park to Cara Dušana and Bulevar Despota Stefana streets and the right bank of the Danube, Lower Dorćol used to be known as Jalija (Turkish Yali, bank). It boarders the neighborhoods of Stari Grad and Jevremovac and Kalemegdan fortress, which is considered as part of Dorćol as well.
This is a historical neighbourhood of Belgrade. An area where the first city is created. In the past this was multicultural part of town, where Gypsies, Jews, Turks and Serbs lived. Before the Second World War Belgrade included three synagogues and thousands of Jews who had their own quarter in Dorćol, meanwhile after the bombing in the WWII just one synagogue survived. The most of the Jews left the Kingdom of Yugoslavia or were executed by Nazis. Today, the heritage of Jews and their story is presented in the Jewish museum in Kralja Petra (King Peter’s) street.
