Adventurous and energetic, Belgrade is situated on the banks of the Sava and Danube, warmly welcoming visitors from all over the world. The history of this rapidly developing city is revealed in front of you, as this picturesque, eclectic and vibrant capital has been witnessing a turbulent history, which has shaped it into what it is today. Forty armies besieged the city, and thirty eight times this capital was reborn from ashes. Belgrade is the capital of Serbia with the population of 1.6 million people and stands strong with its grandiose buildings, architecturally reminiscent of the Kingdom of Serbia.
The most famous and most important Serbian architectural monuments are located in Belgrade: Kalemegdan Fortress, numerous cultural monuments, lush parks, impressive squares, and city fountains. Belgrade is one of the greenest capitals of Europe, graced with large, beautiful parks and the Sava and Danube rivers flowing into the center of some city districts.
Nowadays, Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education and science. Among thousands of events organized here yearly, are strong theatre performances, art exhibits, concerts, conferences and film festivals.
Perhaps, what Belgrade is best known for is its vibrant social life and endless entertainment options from sophisticated restaurants, bars, clubs, the Sava-Mala club district, to bohemian Skadarlija and river raft-houses with upbeat music. Of course, the absolutely best part of Belgrade are the open-minded and energetic Belgrade locals – that makes Belgrade the fun capital by night and adventure capital by day.
