Summary/Abstract: The development of Belgrade as the urban centre and the capital of Serbia is a process that is conditioned as by its specific geographical location so by the intensive historical events, and the consequences and impacts of the development refer to the urbanization of other settlements in Serbia. The urban planning is by nature turned primarily toward the future, but the knowledge, experience and lessons of the past can significantly contribute to better understanding of the real solutions, avoiding mistakes and a special dedication to a certain topics. Scenarios and strategies for future development must mitigate the extent of the determinateness, given the uncertainty and unpredictability as key determinants of life in this region. The problems of the city of the XIX and the XX century were also transferred in modern times, which speak of their complexity and the lack of will to seriously and fully commit to. In 1910, traveling the eastern countries, Le Corbusier wrote a few short notes about Belgrade, noting its „amazing position“, but describing it as an „indefinite and disorganized“. Building a city on this bases, we again re-evaluate its position and importance in the state and the region, the historical facts that led to the current look, growth and expansion, economic and demographic conditions, all with the aim to recognize its creative potentials.
