Belgrade has always been a place of intersection of the roads from various empires, where the history was being written and culture of different people overlapped. Some of the oldest European human settlements come from Serbia (Lepenski vir) and Belgrade (Vinča) from the fifth millennium BC. It is known that already in the 3rd century BC members of a Celtic tribe founded Singidunum (today Belgrade) at the confluence of two rivers, the Sava and Danube. It is considered to be one of the oldest cities in Europe, and the first mention of Belgrade dates back to 878.

The capital of Serbia has a population of about 1.7 million and its territory is divided into 17 city municipalities. Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education and science and many institutions of national significance are located in it.

Through its rich history, Belgrade has been changing its shape, absorbing influences from the East and West, which has made this city especially interesting, colorful and different. The contemporaries regard it as business capital of Serbia and the Balkans, the city of culture and history, the city of sports and entertainment, but also the city of art and music. The energy generated by Belgrade and people who live in it makes Belgrade a city that never sleeps. Exactly for this reason, in 2008, Belgrade won the flattering title of the city with the best night life in Europe, according to CNN and Times magazine.

Therefore, if you decide to visit Belgrade, rest assured that Belgrade will have many interesting programs to offer.
