Belgrade is the capital of the southeast European country of Serbia. Its most significant landmark is Beogradska Tvrđava, an imposing fortress at the confluence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. A testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires, the fortress is now the site of several museums and Kalemegdan, a vast park.
PEOPLE AND CULTURE
If there is one thing that surprises people when they come to Belgrade for the first time, it's the people.
You hear all those stories of nationalism and bad politics and you'd expect Belgraders to be grumpy, tired folks who probably like nothing more than cursing at westerners - NOT SO.
Serbians in general are loud, happy, outgoing, hospitable people always happy to meet new people and have guests over.
The culture is very intimate and it's incredibly easy to make contact with people - it also helps that they speak English a lot better than any of their East European neighbors.
Sure, you'll occasionally run into a super-obnoxious cab driver but hey, that just adds to the charm.
Generally, what you will see in downtown Belgrade is crowds of young, beautiful people sitting around cafes, eager for some fun - and more than happy to talk to and entertain foreigners.
Don't be surprised if you ask someone for directions and they end up taking you where you want to go, giving you a free lesson of Serbian culture, politics and history, buying you drinks, and inviting you home for mom's dinner later.
