"Into the Blue"

Close to the old town and situated on the shore of the Save, Savamala, a neighbourhood in Belgrade, could be so picturesque if it were not marked by wars and the present economic crisis. Savamala’s historic buildings are run down, the city quarter is economically underdeveloped and socially disadvantaged. The project Urban Incubator now aims to change that. However, it is not being planned and implemented by politicians and investors, but by artists and residents of the quarter. After some construction work in early June, the “Spanish House” – unused since the Second World War – glows in a gentle blue light and is now the landmark of the project.
