Genex Tower (pictured below) is unmissable on the highway from Belgrade airport to the centre of the city.
Miodrag Zivkovic, the 91-year-old sculptor of the 19 metre-high concrete Tjentiste memorial was among the first artists in the former Yugoslavia to use concrete.
"It is stable material, resembling stone but it is easier to work with," he said.
"For every project back in those days there was a national contest, and artists from all over the country had the opportunity to apply, and that competition produced quality."
