Which are the best luxury hotels in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade? Belgrade is an up and coming Balkan city offering crowded café terraces on the banks of the Danube or Sava, and the fashionable streets of the historic center. Surrounding the vibrant center are the dour neighborhoods of the communist era, representing the city’s more recent past. Its main landmark is the Beogradska Tvrđava, a fortress where the Danube and the Sava rivers join, a testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires. Now it houses several museums as well as Kalemegdan, a lovely park.
