Belgrade is the capital of Serbia situated at the confluence of the rivers Sava and the Danube. Many tribes and nations have lived there. Celts have called their settlement Singidunum, but the Slavs named it a White City/Beo grad. It is an important crossroad of routes leading from Western and Eastern Europe and towards Athens and Istanbul. Belgrade is also an important regional educational center. University of Belgrade is on Shanghai ranking list one of the 500 most valuable universities in the world. It is also a cultural center with interesting museums, theaters, art festivals, but also a gastronomical surprise with a lot of restaurants with traditional cuisine and music.
