Belgrade is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Serbia and its political, cultural, scientific, and economic center. It is located in the northern part of Central Serbia, at the confluence of the Sava and the Dunav, and is surrounded by Vojvodina on three sides. Because of this position, Belgrade is aptly called the Gate of the Balkans and the Gate of Central Europe. It is one of the oldest Byzantine cities. Administratively, Belgrade is divided into 17 city municipalities, of which 10 are urban and 7 are suburban. Belgrade represents a kind of crossroads between Western Europe and the Orient. Belgrade hosts several annual important international events. This city carries with it a deep cultural and historical heritage, which, among other things, is reflected in a large number of museums. Numerous monuments that over time have become symbols of the city, such as Pobednik, Prince Mihajlo Monument, or the former residence of the royal family, Beli Dvor, speak of the turbulent history of Serbia and the Serbian capital.
In contemporary Belgrade, new urban places are emerging where young people gather for fun, culture, and art. Its unique stamp is given by its location – it is located at the confluence of two large rivers – the Sava and the Danube – whose banks are landscaped and popular promenades filled with parks, but also restaurants and cafes that are mostly on rafts from which you can enjoy a magical view of the river and the city. A large number of Belgrade’s sights are concentrated in the very center of the city, which makes them easily accessible for those who prefer an independent tour.

Each of these locations has excellent connections with the city and can be reached in less than 30 minutes. Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education, and science.
