It is one of the oldest cities in Europe, at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, surrounded by wooded mountains, both a river port and a capital city. Many times destroyed, always rebuilt. Belgrade is the capital of Serbia. A simple stroll through the city with your tour guide offers you a valuable experience: you will meet Orthodox, Catholics and Muslims, i. e. Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Hungarians and Albanians. A cultural and religious melting pot that makes Belgrade rich, under the yoke of the Romans, Turks, Communists... Today, this romantic city with its Slavic accents, half eastern, half western, has a very special charm. The destination, a university town, is famous for its festive nightlife, with clubs open until the early hours of the morning. Night owls particularly appreciate the barges lined up along the banks of the Danube and Save rivers. In the city, traditional restaurants and bars see poets declaiming verses and musicians performing live. We will visit the immense church of Saint Sava, with its domes and arcades and several very interesting museums including the National Museum, the Zepter Museum dedicated to Serbian artists, the Museum of the History of Yugoslavia and Communism. We will walk through the pedestrian district of the city centre, Knez Mihailova, spot the fortress of Belgrade and take a walk in the Kalemegdan park. Finally, you will not be able to resist embarking on a small cruise on the Danube
