“…I had found the most beautiful place of antiquity, the overlarge city of Belgrade…” – Despot Stefan Lazarevic
Belgrade is one of the oldest cities in Europe, special because of its unique location at the confluence of two main rivers in Balkans. This kind of location gave Belgrade different names through its turbulent history. Some of them such as Gate of Balkans and Doorway to middle Europe remain till today and they best describe why Belgrade was reborn from ashes more than 38 times.
The city itself, has a long history. Starting from Celts, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, to Austro- Hungarians… All these Empires ruled Belgrade at least once. Therefore, White City is also known for its rich cultural and historical heritage such as Kalemegdan Fortress, Tasmajdan Park. City is also home to second largest Orthodox church in Europe named “Saint Sava Temple” with stunning crypt and central dome.
Still Belgrade is most famous for its vibrant nightlife. For this reason, it’s also known as “the city that never sleeps.” Floating clubs on its rivers have become synonyms for great parties and endless fun.
…” its rivers, its sky and its people. Out of these three primeval elements, the unique spirit of Belgrade is born.” – Momo Kapor
