Template:Infobox settlement Viline Vode (Serbian Cyrillic: ?????? ????) is an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Palilula.


Viline Vode is located on the right bank of the Danube, stretching from under the Pan?eva?ki most bridge to the west. It borders the neighborhoods of Stari Grad on the west, Ada Huja and Deponija on the east and Bogoslovija on the south.


Neighborhood is named after the former numerous hot springs on the bank of the Danube as Viline Vode is Serbian for fairy waters. In the 1980s ambitious plans were developed for Viline Vode which were supposed to transform the neighborhood from industrial into the wealthy residential one with blocks of villas and small residential buildings. City authorities claimed it will be Belgrade's Santa Barbara but the idea was completely dropped and neighborhood was left as it was.


Viline Vode is one of few Belgrade's neighborhoods that are entirely industrial. Among many such facilities it comprises TEMPO cash-and-carry center, several gravel and sand extracting companies on the Danube's bank, Beograd put, Centroprom, Martez, Tehnohemija, Jugopapir, Duga, Avala cardboard factory, Balkan, Keprom, eastern part of the Port of Belgrade and the railway station Beograd-Dunav.
