|Central Bus Station in Niš (picture from wikimapia)|
I got inspired for this post by Yomadic's blog entry: http://www.yomadic.com/bus-from-belgrade-to-nis-serbia/ and his beautiful picture of the Niš Bus station.
Since in the Balkans, particularly in Serbia, Railway travelling was never so popular like traveling by bus, some Bus Stations got a lot of architectural attention when they were built.
I found pictures from some interesting Bus Stations and hope to expand this collection soon!
Niš Bus Station

One of them is the Bus Station in Nis (Ниш) built in 1977 and one of the most modern Bus Station of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia with 18 platforms. Nis-Ekspress AD was the main investor.
Ćuprija Bus Station

A close up shows the lamellar structure of the roof supported by precast columns arranged in a semi-circle.

Another interesting Bus Station is the one in Novi Pazar built in the 1970's. The first time I visted Novi Pazar I was fascinated by it's frivolous architecture (read it in my post about Novi Pazar).

|Zrenjanin Bus Station (from autobusi.net)|
In Zrenjanin the Bus Station has a relief-like Fassade like in Niš. It/s not a big station, but with this detail it looks almost like an airport.
