No one is really sure about Dorćol's borders, but it is believed that it includes northern and lower Kalemedgan, as well as everything from Knez Mihailova street to the river Danube. The name is of Turkish origin consisting of 'Dort' which means four and 'jol' which translates as 'way', so basically Dorćol is a crossroad of four ways or directions. In the age of the Turkish empire, this was a merchants' quarter, so it was a very rich part of the city, and it has remained relatively posh to this day. Many old houses were replaced with new buildings, but the spirit of Dorćol has remained, and some parts still look like they used to many years ago. The oldest house in Belgrade is also located in this neighbourhood.
