Belgrade Holidays Overview
The capital city of the Republic of Serbia, Belgrade is located where the River Sava meets the Danube. Belgrade was the capital of all three versions of Yugoslavia throughout the twentieth century, and until the Republic of Serbia was formed in 2003.
Belgrade is also a capital of Serbian culture, education, science and economy, and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It has a mix of nationalities but Serbs of the Orthodox Christian religion still make up the majority of the population. The main language is Serbian, but most people understand English and are very open to showcasing their city to tourists.
Belgrade has also become a party town, with a young crowd that like to spend their days in trendy cafes, eat late, drink later, and then dance until sunrise. There is plenty to do and see in Belgrade, from festivals and exhibitions to museums and public parks.
