Belgrade About Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital city of Serbia and has a population of around 1.7 million. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and since ancient times has been an important crossing of Eastern and Western Europe. The city lies on two international waterways, at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, which surround it on three sides. Because of this position, Belgrade is fittingly referred to as the Gateway to the Balkans and the Door to Central Europe. Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education and science.
