Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia. The city lies at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans and was the birthplace of the largest prehistoric culture of Europe. It has an urban population of 1.2 million, while the metropolitan area has more than 1.7 million people, making it one of the largest cities of Southeastern Europe. Belgrade is both a place to unwind and to amp up (NYTimes). Most world airlines fly to Belgrade and the recent introduction of budget airlines’ flight to Belgrade, travelling here has never been more affordable and convenient. For example a flight from London with WizzAir could cost around £70 and takes 2.75 hours with easy bus and taxi connections to the city centre.
