Knjaževac - Little Venice in eastern Serbia.

Construction engineer Borivoje Radenković was born in Knjaževac, and for more than fifty years he participated in the construction of many important buildings in Serbia. Among other things, he is also the builder of St. Mark’s Church in Belgrade.

In the past, Knjaževac was called “Serbian Venice” and “Little Paris” precisely because of the seven bridges that bridged the banks of Svrljiški and Trgoviški Timok. The most famous and the most photographed is the so-called “stone bridge” in the center of the city. It was designed by engineer Borivoje Radenković in 1913. years. With a span of 30 meters, it was the largest bridge of its kind in Serbia.

In terms of communication, the most important is the bridge on Trgoviški Timok, which was built on five wooden tumbas back in 1851. years. It has been demolished and rebuilt as many times as there have been wars on this soil. Bridges are a frequent motif of photographers and painters, and the people of Knjažev simply call them “wooden”, “white”, “concrete” or romantically – “bridge of love”.
