Public guidance "Did you know this about Belgrade" on Kalemegdan on 17th April will present a rich history by walking through medieval, Turkish, Austrian and Serbian Belgrade. Lectures in the open for each recommendation are: "Belgrade in the XV century - the peak of the development of the medieval town at the confluence of the Sava and the Danube", "From Belgrade to Belgrade: Two Centuries of Division", "Through the Stambol Gate to Liberation", "Between Two Powers: Belgrade 1804-1867" and "Kalemegdan - outdoor museum".

Belgrade is first mentioned in the letter of Pope John VIII on 16th April, 878. Prince Mihailo received the keys of the city from Ali Riza-Pasha on 19th April 1867. These dates are of great importance to the capital of Serbia and because of that, an unusual story is celebrated in the spring days, when Belgrade shines with full glow.

The whole April will be marked by good music on the streets of Belgrade. The International Jazz Day is celebrated on 30th April and a concert "Ladies Singing Jazz" will be organized on the Republic Square from 19:00. Ana Sofrenovic, Irena Blagojevic, Jelena Theunisz and Andjelka Simic will perform, accompanied by Jovan Maljokovic band.
