IntroductionDating back to around 4800 BC, Belgrade is now the largest city in Serbia and also its capital. Located in north central Serbia and positioned at the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers, where the Balkan Peninsula meets the Pannonian Plain, Belgrade has some enviable surrounding scenery.
Not only is Belgrade the largest city in Serbia but it is also the largest city in the countries that were formerly Yugoslavia.
Serbia has been the subject of much disruption in the latter part of the 20th century, culminating in the many demonstrations of 1996 and 1997 against Slobodan Milošević. Following the 2000 elections, a mass demonstration of more than 1,000,000 people took place, which finally caused the removal of Milošević as leader.
Since then, Belgrade has become far more settled and has rightly attracted a large number of visitors from across the globe.
