Branko’s Bridge stands over Sava river, connecting Novi Beograd with the city center. Regarding scope of traffic, Branko’s Bridge is the second most important bridge in Belgrade, after the Gazela. During communist era, this bridge was officially called the Brotherhood and Unity Bridge, but this name has never been accepted among the citizens of Belgrade, who sometimes called it the Sava bridge or else the bridge in Brankova street, because it leads into the street named upon the poet Branko Radicevic. It is this street that the bridge got its present day name after, because it is its natural extension, and not after Branko Copic, Serbian writer who committed suicide jumping from the bridge. In 2006, bicycle elevator was placed next to the bicycle lane, on the city center side of the bridge.
