Galerija Belgrade Opening in October 2020

Galerija Belgrade, the largest shopping center in Serbia and in the region, is scheduled to open in October, as confirmed by its developers Eagle Hills.

What makes this shopping center special is that it is the first and only shopping center in Europe to be developed on a riverbank, and it is a destination that will provide the largest shopping, gastronomy, and entertainment offer in the local market.

The Jewel of Belgrade Waterfront

Galerija Belgrade is part of the biggest multi-use real estate development project in the center of Belgrade worth 3 billion US dollars, known as Belgrade Waterfront. The whole commercial, residential, and leisure project of 1.8 million sqm is situated right next to the Sava River, and Galerija Belgrade is planned to be its focal point.

Belgrade Waterfront

Nikola Nedeljković, General Manager of Belgrade Waterfront, stated: 

“Among all the projects we are currently working on within Belgrade Waterfront, Galerija Belgrade is certainly one of the most exciting. A unique mix of more than 300 local and international brands that will be presented in their premium versions, combined with prestigious restaurants, cafes and unprecedented entertainment for all generations, will position Galerija Belgrade as an unavoidable shopping destination in the Balkans, which will undoubtedly improve the general tourist offer of Belgrade and strengthen its economy”.

Shopping, Gastronomy, and Entertainment 

The shopping mall featuring 93,000 sqm of lease space and 3,600 parking spaces, will offer over 300 international and regional brands across 3 levels (ground and two above-ground).

Galerija Belgrade Exterior

Following the latest international shopping center trends, Eagle Hills has paid special attention to create a tenant mix that will provide more than just shopping. As much as 20 percent of the total area is dedicated to gastronomy and entertainment, which is four times more than the standard on the local market.

Over 50 cafes and restaurants have been included in the mix. A wide selection of exclusive Slow Food restaurants have been positioned on the ground floor of the mall, in order to provide its future visitors with outdoor seating areas right next to the river. These ground-floor restaurants, which will include the most renowned restaurant names in Serbia, will be open until 2 am. A part of the bars and cafes will be located on specially designed squares inside the building.

When it comes to entertainment, the mall will feature the most modern multiplex cinema spreading across 4.000 sqm, offering more than 1,700 seats. Also, a huge entertainment complex consisting of three thematic units will introduce to the market an unseen entertainment concept that will integrate sports and education.

Architectural Design 

The prestigious architectural studio Callison RTKL, which is behind projects such as Columbia Center in Seattle and Fashion Show, the largest shopping mall in Las Vegas, designed Galerija Belgrade.

Galerija Belgrade Interior

Although impressive in terms of dimensions, Galerija Belgrade fits perfectly into the ambiance of the river with its exterior dominated by stone and glass, while the interior inspired by the urban atmosphere and eclectic architecture of the capital pays homage to Belgrade, bringing its riverbanks back to the epicenter of everyday life.
