Ada Stonehenge – Belgrade, Serbia - Atlas Obscura

Ada Stonehenge

This art installation pays homage to the famed stones of European lore.  


Stonehenge is a world-famous landmark that features several replicas all across the globe. Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, also has its own version of the site known as Ada Stonehenge.

The installation was crafted by sculptor Ratko Vulanović in 1992 and now stands at the entrance of Ada Ciganlija, a popular recreational zone. Vulanović stated that the United Kingdom’s original Stonehenge was his inspiration, but also a hearth from his childhood.

In his family home, several stones were typically put in a circle to form a hearth in his living room, similar to a fireplace used for cooking and heating the house. Vulanović created a similar monument, called Stone Town, in his hometown of Nikšić, Montenegro. However, it was demolished by local authorities after they concluded it was created without planning permission, although the monument was ordered by the government.
