About Belgrade

Belgrade is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian plains meet the Balkans.

The medieval city of Singidunum, which has been known by its Slavic name Belgrade since 878, was built on the site where the Belgrade Fortress and Kalemegdan Park are still located today, above the place where the Sava flows into the Danube. Because of this position, Belgrade is aptly called the gateway to the Balkans, and the door to Central Europe.

Geographically, Belgrade includes three areas: Old Town on the right bank of the Sava and Danube, New Belgrade on the left bank of the Sava, and Zemun on the banks of the Danube outside New Belgrade.
