It is one of the oldest cities in Europe. The first settlements in this area date from prehistoric Vinca, even 4,800 years BC. Belgrade was founded by Celts in the 3rd century BC and during the Roman Empire became a settlement Singidunum. The Slovenian name "Beligrad", meaning white city, was first recorded in 878 AD.  Belgrade is the capital of Serbia since 1405 and was the capital of various South Slav states from 1918 until 2003, as well as Serbia and Montenegro from 2003 to 2006.

This is a city that connects the incompatible. Since it is located on the borders of East and West, in Belgrade, you can feel a unique energy that leaves no one indifferent.

 

Days and nights can be spent in interesting gardens, bars, cafes and restaurants, that offer, in addition to great food and beverages, creative concepts, and authentically designed interiors - that you are sure to remember.

While you can find plenty of modern and urban places to go out, you should not miss out on experiencing typical Serbian sounds of tamburica in one of the many traditional Serbian taverns.
