The most beautiful place since ancient times …
“And when I came, I found the most beautiful place since ancient times,
too big city, Belgrade, which was then destroyed and deserted,
I raised it and dedicated it to the Mother of God. “
Despot Stefan Lazarević
Three-dimensional animated film “The Most Beautiful Place since ancient times” by Marko Radosavljević is probably the best and most original idea of the medieval Belgrade ever made in any kind of technique. The film faithfully presented appearance of the Belgrade Fortress then, the Court of Despot Stefan Lazarević, city ports, streets and squares where you could feel the atmosphere, characteristic for medieval times. Then in Belgrade, except Serbs, lived and traded also the Hungarians, citizens of Dubrovnik and Venitians.
The city parts known as “Gornji grad” (upper town) and “Donji grad” (down town), city walls and buildings of the Metropolitan’s residence and the Franciscan Church as well as the ordinary family houses where lived citizens which is particularly interesting because there are very little or no information about the architecture and method of construction of family houses of that time. The author made them based on the similar buildings in Budapest and Smederevo.
