Belgrade - A Leading Hub in South-Eastern Europe

Belgrade (Beograd or "The White City|) is the capital of Serbia, and has a population of around 1.6 million. It is situated in South-Eastern Europe, on the Balkan Peninsula, at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has since ancient times been an important focal point for traffic, an intersection of the roads of Eastern and Western Europe. 

As a strategic location, the city has been involved in 115 wars and razed to the ground 44 times. Belgrade was the capital of Yugoslavia from its creation in 1918 to its dismemberment in 1992.

Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education, science and economy. As a result of its tumultuous history, Belgrade has for centuries been home to many nationalities, with Serbs of the Orthodox Christian religion making up the majority of the population (90%). The official language is Serbian.  Various styles of architecture dominate the city, while its recent resurgence as the leading hub in south-eastern Europe make it a must see destination.
