Stari Đeram or colloquially Đeram (Serbian Cyrillic: Стари Ђерам) is an open green market and an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Zvezdara.

Location[edit]

Đeram is located along Bulevar kralja Aleksandra, centered around the open green market of the same name, in the eastern section of Zvezdara municipality, 2 kilometers south-east of downtown Belgrade (Terazije). It borders the neighborhood of Crveni Krst on the south, Lipov Lad on the south-east, Lion on the east, Bulbuder and Slavujev Venac on the north and Vukov Spomenik on the west.

History and administration[edit]

When Belgrade was divided into municipalities in 1952, a municipality of Stari Đeram (Old Đeram) was created. On January 1, 1957, that municipality was abolished and merged with Zvezdara. The neighborhood is today organized as a local community (sub-municipal administrative unit) of Smederevski Đeram (Smederevo Đeram).

Characteristics[edit]

The neighborhood was named after a water well located there (đeram means cattle-drawn water well). The main feature of the neighborhood is one of Belgrade's largest open green markets, Đeram pijaca, which is going to be renovated in 2008 and become first covered green market of that size in Belgrade. Apart from that, the neighborhood is mainly residential with a strong commercial section along the boulevard, one of the main shopping areas in Belgrade. According to the 2002 census, the population of the neighborhood was 2,465.
