Belgrade consists of seventeen city municipalities spread over 322,268 hectares. It has about 1,700,000 inhabitants. The climate is moderately continental, temperatures in the summer can reach 40 degrees, and in the winter to 20 degrees below zero. However, golden mean is the most common, so summer and winter are mostly pleasant. Belgrade specialty is wind - kosava (a cold, very squally southeastern wind found in Serbia). Southeastern and eastern wind brings clear and dry weather. It usually blows during autumn and winter.

The Sava and the Danube are ruling all over the territory in order to meet at the borders of the Great War Island, Novi Beograd and Nebojsa Tower at the foot of Kalemegdan. Belgrade is a cradle of one of the oldest civilizations - Vinca. The first human settlements on the territory of Belgrade were created 7,000 years ago. Vinca, 14 km away from Belgrade on the way to Grocka, is a prehistoric site on the very bank of the Danube, with the remains of the material culture of a prehistoric man.

Belgrade - it is also Kalemegdan, the Belgrade Fortress on it, the Military Museum, the Zoo and the monument Belgrade Victor, symbol of the Serbian capital. You can see the abundance of architecture and styles of the 18th and 19th centuries at every step, especially if you visit Milosev konak (Milos's Residence) in Topcider or Konak Kneginje Ljubice (Princess Ljubica's Residence), and there is also Captain Misa's mansion and Manak's house.

Coffee and Turkish delight or lokum are nowhere richer in history and traditional spite than in the old Belgrade taverns, and the bells ring most beautifully in the old Cathedral Church. The White Palace in Dedinje is a real royal building, and history after the World War II can be learned at the Museum of Yugoslavia.

The main railway station on the Sava Square in literature and film was recorded as the key point of "Murder on the Orient Express" by Agatha Christie. Since the summer 2018, it has been closed for traffic that has moved to the new main station, Prokop, and the magnificent building will be a museum. On the other side of the river there are the Gardos and the Millennium Tower. Walking down the Knez Mihailova Street, according to the unwritten rule, ends with an excellent lunch or dinner in Bohemian Skadarlija. If you prefer staying in nature, continue walking on Ada Ciganlija.

Lovers of opera, ballet and theater can enjoy the repertoire of the National Theater, and across the street there is an impressive guardian of the history of Serbia, the completely renovated National Museum. A place that can not be missed is the Terazije fountain surrounded by the famous hotel "Moskva" and the palace "Albania". Places that did not leave indifferent the journalists of "Discovery" are the new Avala Tower, the Temple of St. Sava in Vracar and the beautiful Bridge on Ada.

When going sightseeing in the city, especially going out at night, you do not go without the local people. If you want to feel that famous Serbian "no problem", it is really the case with Belgraders. Belgrade is the only place in the heart of Europe where night fun is really fun. Belgrade boat-based clubs and clubs are a brand that has won over the world. And the Belgraders won it personally - the winner of the Pulitzer Prize Dusan Carls Simic, the artist Marina Abramovic and the world tennis player Novak Djokovic.

The surroundings of Belgrade consist of the Pannonian plain under wheat and corn and Sumadija under orchards and vineyards. Belgrade is proud of the natural pearls, Kosmaj and Avala, natural reserves of plant and animal species such as the War Island, Ada Huja, Grocanska ada, Kosutnjak, Lipovica, Topcider, Obrenovacki Zabran and Bojcin Forest.

Agino brdo is a Neolithic site, Dubocaj and Brestovik belong to the Roman period. In Suplja stena prehistoric mining caves were found, and in Avala, a medieval stone fortress, the town of Zrnov. Many well-preserved Celtic tombs were found in the territory of Karaburma and Rospi Cuprija. The Roman terme found in the University Park at the Students Square are the remains of the Roman civilian settlement. The remains of the Roman settlement were also found in the Lower town of Kalemegdan - a temple to God Mithra with an altar.
