Belgrade, capital city of Serbia on the River Danube

Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia, is located between two rivers, the Danube and the Sava.

Although the city is not known for its beauty, with lots of Soviet-era modern ugly blocks, there are occasional grand buildings worth visiting such as the ancient Kalemegdan Citadel, a fortress resting on white rocks, the Knez Mihailova, a street full of bookshops, restaurants and galleries and Skadarlija, which is the Bohemian quarter.
Belgrade Nikola Tesla (BEG) airport is 20 km west of the city.

From the airport, take the A1 minibus to Slavija Square in the city centre, where you can pick up your hire car.

Take advantage of Belgrade car hire and drive 13 km to Mladenovac, where you'll find the Selters Spa. The area around Mount Kosmaj, which overlooks Mladenovac, consists largely of forests and meadows and is also home to many monasteries.

Other places of interest include the Vojvodina Plains, which consist of ploughed fields, vineyards and orchards that are connected by drainage canals. The Fruska Gora monastery is one of 16 Serbian Orthodox monasteries which were constructed in the Middle Ages. They are spread across the Fruska Gora hills, a vast area 50 km long by 10 km wide. In the mountains of Zlatibor, you can enjoy skiing in winter and walking in the summer months. Serbian Parliment in the capital city, Belgrade
