Belgrade- Serbia`s capital
As Serbia's capital, Belgrade is the first place to go when exploring this fascinating land. It's nestled at the crossing of two rivers, the Sava and Danube, right at the point where the Balkan Peninsula converges with the Plain of Pannonia. 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. Having well over a 1,6 million inhabitants, Belgrade is the biggest metropolis in all of former Yugoslavia, and as the main finance hub of Serbia, it's filled with cultural delights, with plenty of museums, festivals and landmarks to admire. 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, while visitors from abroad can use English to communicate.
