Mayor of Belgrade Sinisa Mali, Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin and Head of the Moscow's Department for Foreign Economic and International Relations Sergei Cheremin were present at the opening ceremony of a memorial plaque dedicated to the architect, which was fixed on the wall of one of the buildings found in the street, reports RIA «Novosti».

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Russian diplomat said on the day they pay tribute both to the memory of architect Krasnov and all representatives of the Russian immigrants as about 90,000 people arrived in Yugoslavia after the Russian revolution of 1917.

Nikolai Krasnov designed the Livadia Palace in Crimea. He left Russia and lived on Malta for some time. In 1922, he settled down in Belgrade where he became the Head of the Department of monumental architectural developments and monuments at the Ministry of Housing and Building of Serbia. At that time, the country was part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Initially, the architect signed his projects as Nikolai Petrovich Krasnov but later he was called Nikola Krasnov. He was the author of about 60 design projects of buildings found in Serbia, including the buildings where the Serbian government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sit. A memorial plaque dedicated to Nikolai Krasnov fixed on a wall of the latter was unveiled in spring 2011.
