Belgrade city on the crossroads
Welcome to Belgrade, one of the oldest capital cities of Europe, town on an exceptional position and well-known with its picturesque ambient corners, old stories, great citizens and visitors, urban spirit, a continuous rhythm of life and great hospitality.
The city is not just located at the meeting point of two large rivers, the Sava and the Danube, but it is also a place where two completely different geographical areas meet to create a unique blend and contrast – calm Pannonian valley on the north and ruffled hills of Šumadija on the South.
Such a strategic location, at the natural crossroads of water paths and relief, made Belgrade magically attractive for many nations and rulers, whose constant presence and changes, gave a unique flavour and enriched it with various human-made attributes. So Belgrade became a permanent border between worlds, a place of meeting and exchange, but also of perpetual conflicts and fights.Slavs arrived here about 1500 years ago and the fact that among all the nations, they were the only one to stay and remain here tells of their courage and perseverance.During its recorded history, the city had been destroyed around 40 times, was changing rulers about 60 times, and had about a dozen of different names. Probably not too many human settlements could compete with such statistics.
Belgrade offers some of the most attractive sights: Belgrade Fortress with Kalemegdan park hosting numerous monuments on its paths and Victor statue with the most beautiful lookout, Skadarlija– The old bohemian street with small restaurants, cafés and galleries, Knez Mihailova Street - pedestrian zone and popular shopping area, Republic square with National Theatre, National Museum and the Monument to Prince Mihailo Obrenović, City Court complex with Old and New Palace, The National Assembly, Temple of St. Sava – the largest Orthodox Church in the Balkans, Museum of Nikola Tesla,Royal Court Complex with Royal Palace and White Palace, Zemun with narrow cobblestoned streets, promenade by the Danube, barges-cafés and famous Gardoš tower, Ada Ciganlija known as Belgrade sea and mountain Avala with new TV tower, Monument to the unknown hero and Monument to the Russian War Veterans.
River banks on the Confluence of Sava to the Danube are the natural oasis in the heart of the city, never sleeping, with boat restaurants for enjoying food and drinks and having fun.
Underground Belgrade has always attracted tremendous attention since it hides more than one hundred caves, tunnels, passages and incredible stories and legends from the earlier centuries.
On the other hand, the new epicentre of entertainment, modern lifestyle and urban culture is Savamala, with trendy restaurants, clubs, bars, galleries and boutiques. Modern design scene gave popular hotspots: Belgrade Design District, Mikser House, Supermarket Concept Store, attracting international attention with local design products and brands.
The most important impression that guests take home is the hospitality of the Belgraders and the great time that became a symbol of restless Belgrade among foreign visitors.
