#About the Old City that is Renewing Fast

#About theOld City that is Rapidly Regenerating

Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia, the name means "white fortress" in Serbia, lies in the north of the country, on the intersection of two great rivers, the Sava River and the Danube River.

After many years of hibernation, decreed as part of the old communist world, the Serbian capital is on its way to becoming one of the hotest cities in Eastern Europe. The local culture here flourishes in a variety of flavors and colors.

The Serbs are happy to present to the world their culture and the diverse human face of Serbian society. This is particularly true of the people of Belgrade, lovers of a well-known good life and a tireless tirelessly who celebrate life and are known for their warmth and hospitality.

See all the city attractions in the tag "Belgrade".


#History
Belgrade is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Its geographic location has made it a very important strategic focus throughout history. Since it was founded in the 5th century AD, it has undergone upheavals and regimes, and it has ranged from conquerors who ruled it to independence and popular prosperity.

The location of Belgrade made the city the focus of friction between different empires. From the Romans and the Byzantines to the last centuries, when for many years the Ottoman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire fought for control over it.

During the turbulent history of the Balkans, the city was destroyed dozens of times in wars and incessant attacks. Again and again occupiers took control of it and every time the revolts and uprisings of the hard-nosed Serb people returned. Belgrade always rose from its ruins, full of life and energy that brought it back to normal.

In the last century it was in the center of Yugoslavia. When the latter disintegrated, Serbia united with its neighboring Montenegro, and they conducted a joint operation.

In 1999, the crisis broke out in Kosovo, leading to two and a half months of massive NATO bombing of the city, until the president Milosevic surrendered.

In 2006, the two peoples separated and each republic stands by itself. Since then, Belgrade, once the capital of the Republic of Yugoslavia and today the capital of Serbia, has become a popular and popular tourist destination.


#Serbian Rebels

In history, the Serbs are known as true rebels. The best known is George Black, who stood in 1804 at the head of the Great Revolt here and later founded the royal family.

Another rebel, who set off a real world war, was Gabriello Princip, a young Serb who on June 28, 1914, assassinated the Austro-Hungarian heir, Prince Franz Ferdinand, and led to the outbreak of World War I.

Also Marshal Tito, later the leader of Yugoslavia, who led the resistance movement to the Nazis and was the only one who managed to get the Germans out of his country without the help of the empires who fought them. This helped him to confront and prevent Stalin from turning Yugoslavia into another Soviet protectorate.


#Food
The Serbian cuisine is a Balkan cuisine influenced by Turkish and Greek cuisine, and by the kitchens of Austria and Hungary. Examples include the stuffed vine leaves, which are called Sarma, the Hungarian surfer, the Viennese schnitzel from Austria, the Chuapi that is the local kebab, and the burekas here called Jibnica, the muska, the shawarma and the Turkish baklava.

But the Serbian cuisine is based on a variety of meats, including kebab, sausages and meatballs, especially the plzeskavica (meatballs) reminiscent of hamburgers.

In Belgrade, this is a lively and popular urban pedestrian mall filled with good food, coffee, beer and music, alongside intriguing galleries and shops. Here we are having fun!

At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, Skadarlija Street began to develop as the Bohemian region of the Serbian capital. Even then, here was the place where Bulgarian intellectuals and artists used to meet, to spend time and sometimes to live and create.

Indeed, to this day the Skadarlija quarter, continues its stone-paved streets and special lighting at night, to be the Bohemian Quarter of Belgrade. This is where many young people in Belgrade spend their evenings.

Zemun
#About the Neighborhood that was Swallowed up by Belgrade

The Zemun neighborhood is a great place with historical touches and nice people. Zemun is located on the Danube River. This neighborhood, once a picturesque town near Belgrade, was annexed to it in 1934 and became part of the capital of Serbia, one of the 17 districts of the city. A rich town in old buildings, it is one of the most pleasant places to visit workshops and small shops in Belgrade.

Originally the Zemun neighborhood was an ancient outpost of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, located on the Danube. Over the years it became a peaceful town and eventually was swallowed up by the city of Belgrade spreading in all directions. And it is still fun to stroll through its authentic streets or experience the nightlife here.

Although since 1934 it has been an inseparable part of the city of Belgrade, Zemun residents still consider it a city in itself and are proud of their unique mentality and culture.

You are invited to get lost in the streets of the Zemun neighborhood, on sidewalks and stone paved streets and romantic alleys, dine in one of the many fish restaurants or just sit in one of the cafes or riverside bars and enjoy the tranquility that is not as great in the big city.

In the winter, when the neighborhood fills with snow, it becomes even more picturesque and magical - a fascinating and beautiful experience in itself.


#Tips

An evening stroll along the charming promenade along the river will meet you with cute fish restaurants and cozy cafes. After that you can drink and enjoy the colorful bars and enjoy a modern, tasteful past.

St. Sava
St. Sava
#About the Enormous Church that has Been Built in Belgrade for More Than 80 Years

If one thinks that large and magnificent churches were built in the past and are no longer here, the Church of St. Sava comes and proves the opposite. This huge church has been built continuously since 1935 and is dedicated to the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

Today it is already seen as a huge and impressive structure, many of which identify its resemblance to world-famous buildings, such as the Hagia Sophia Mosque in Istanbul and the Taj Mahal in India. Indeed, like the Taj Mahal, this church is made out of white marble and glistening, which together with the sight of its arches reminds of the ancient and famous building in India.

St. Sava is considered the largest Orthodox church in the world still active today. It is second in size, in eastern Europe, after the Church of Moscow, which is considered the largest church in the world of this Christian sect.

The inspiration for shaping the magnificent church was received by its Serbian planners from Byzantine architecture. But the story of St. Sava begins at the end of the 16th century, following the rebellion of the Serbs, when they fought the Ottomans. When the Serbs were defeated, the Ottomans burned all the remains of the holy Sava , who was perceived as the defender of the people and the Serbian church. In the 20th century the Serbs decided to build this church in memory of the saint, where his remains were burned by the Turks.

Already today the church is one of the new symbols, which occupy a place in the skyline of Belgrade. It is easy to distinguish it from different parts of the city and right now, even if it is still a structure whose construction is not finished and is incomplete, especially in the interior works that remain, it looks wonderful. At the end of the work, the inner space will be rich with luxurious frescoes that have been restored and restored over 100 years, in a process that continues to this day.

The church also contains copies of traditional works from the Middle Ages and Serbian artworks. You can also get an impression from the outside and go inside and enjoy the great inner space, even if it has not yet been completed. Today, its plump, round chapel structure is one of the largest and most beautiful Orthodox churches in the world.

The church belongs to a Christian sect of the Serbian Orthodox Church, a stream that is Serbian in every respect. It is named after the Christian Saint Sava, whose name was also commemorated by the name of the river called Sava that passes through the city. The same Sava, by the way, is one of the most important figures in Serbian history. He was a saint revered by the Serbian Orthodox Church and one of its founders. Sava is also considered the saint and patron of many schools and of various Serbian kindergartens.


#Tips

Try to reach the church before sunset. So you can enjoy the sight of it in daylight, and continue to watch it later, as it changes at sunset. In the evening the church is illuminated by blue light on all sides and gives a breathtaking view.

House of Flowers mausoleum
House of Flowers Mausoleum
#About the House of Flowers Where the Revered Marshal Tito is Buried with his Flowers

The House of Flowers Mausoleum or Tito's Mausoleum (Kuća Cvijeća), is named after the flowers surrounding the tomb of the leader of Yugoslavia. The reason? - Marshal Tito, the venerable leader of Yugoslavia, loved flowers very much. So it was natural that when his home was turned into a mausoleum and grave, it was decided to continue the flowering he so loved and nurtured. Next to them are a large number of personal exhibits and those relating to his rule and the period of his regime.

Indeed, the House of Flowers Mausoleum, also known as the May 25th Museum, is actually Tito's home. Today there are various items that show more than anything else about the cult of personality that surrounded him. At his home you can see his collection of luxury cars, as well as many items and gifts the leader received, from various leaders in the world and from his Yugoslavian people. A place of honor is seen in the exhibition in the mausoleum of the medals he received for his military activities. Unlike other tyrants, most of Tito's awards and medals were entirely justified.


#Who was Marshal Tito?

Josip Broz Tito, known as the "Marshal Tito", was considered the father of Yugoslavia. He was the most beloved leader, perhaps the only one in the Warsaw Pact countries, the Soviet-ruled states. Although he was the ruler of the communist regime in the country and an absolute dictator, Tito remained in the memory of most of the former Yugoslavs an admired and even a beloved figure. Most of them show longing and visit his grave.

Tito was a much stronger statesman than his counterparts in other communist countries. During World War II he commanded the largest partisan army in Europe. As a fighter, he was then known as a courageous and aggressive commander, who fought firmly against the Nazi occupation army.

From the end of World War II, until his death in 1980, Tito led the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as a dictatorship. He did so according to the principles of communism, but he was careful to maintain independence from the Soviet Union and was often in conflict with Stalin, who respected him much more than his counterparts in other communist countries in the Communist bloc.

To the citizens of Yugoslavia, Tito gave quite a bit of ease with the communist system. It enabled connections with the West, relative freedom of movement, information flow from the West, and more. Tito also took care of cultural freedom and ensured that English will be a mandatory language to learn at the level of mother tongue in Yugoslavian schools.

Ada Bridge
#About the Wonderful Bridge of Belgrade


Between 2008-2011 Ada Bridge was built, the newest bridge of Belgrade, built and crossing the Sava River. It is a cable bridge designed by local architects. It was built across the river and connected to the island of Ada Ciganlija, which for this reason was even expanded and reinforced with concrete so that it could firmly hold the foundations of the bridge.

The bridge connects both sides of Belgrade, old and new. It was built to reduce the burden of transportation in the city center and did indeed ease the burden on the city.

But beyond the important role in organizing the movement in Belgrade, the bridge became one of the symbols of the city of Belgrade. The modernist design, especially at night, has contributed to this, with blue lighting that illuminates it and highlights to all its special appearance, which is based on many metal cables that hold it.

St. Michael's Cathedral
#About the Most Beautiful and Important Orthodox Cathedral in the History of the City and the Serbian People

The St. Michael's Cathedral (Saborna crkva) is an Orthodox Serbian church built on the site of an older church. It is located in the center of Belgrade, in the old part of town, not far from Republic Square, the center of Belgrade.

The cathedral was built in a classic style, with neo-Baroque influences, in the first half of the 19th century. It is full of icons and works of gold by leading artists of the 19th century.


#The Historical Role of the Church

The cathedral, is a historic monument that began in the first half of the 19th century and has become a religious, administrative and cultural center of the Serbian capital.

The church, which is considered a national church in Serbia, gradually became a force and a factor of great significance to the Serbian nation. It has been most instrumental in strengthening the unity of the Serbian nation and has been the backbone of the country.

During the Ottoman rule, when the Turks suppressed the Serbs, the Serbian Orthodox Church played a very important role. When the Church provided spiritual support and support to the Serbian people and contributed greatly to national solidarity in those difficult times, it inspired the spirit of freedom and strengthened national feelings and the aspiration for independence. The Serbs drew inspiration from them and a spiritual force that led them to a great readiness for self-sacrifice and heroism on the battlefield. Even in the liberation movement that had crystallized in Serbia, the national clergy took a particularly significant place among the heads of the nation and its future leaders.

In the church are the graves of two of the rulers of Serbia in previous centuries.
Great War Island
#About the Island in the Center of the Danube River in Belgrade

The island known as the Great War Island (Veliko Ratno Ostrvo), is known in Belgrade as the island where the Turks planned their attack on the fortress of Belgrade when they planned to conquer the city.

Eventually, the Turkish conquering of the city was complete, and not necessarily from the island...but who can think about that when in the wonderful island, right at the points where the Sava and the Danube meet, there is a wonderful nature reserve where hundreds of bird species live.

Like all nature reserves, on the Great War Island you can visit, but there is no accommodation for overnight stays.

Parliament
#About the Serbian House of Parliament

The Parliament House in Belgrade is a very impressive building located along King Alexander Avenue, one of the most beautiful boulevards in the city center. As such, the Serbian Parliament is just one of a number of other governmental buildings on the boulevard that can be seen and visited during the week.

The unique design of the Palace of Parliament includes many decorations on its exterior walls, which were popular in the architecture of the period. The inner walls of the building are also decorated, but not in decorations, but in many wall paintings by Yugoslavian artists, most prominent in Yugoslavia of the 1940's.



#History of the Structure

The history of the Parliament building is also interesting. The building of the Serbian Parliament was established at the initiative of King Peter I, when the first plan was set up by the architect Konstantin Jovanović in 1891. Since the new constitution required two houses of law and not one, the plan was changed. The person who made the changes in the plan was another architect named Jovan Ilkić. This year was already 1901 and he tried to make the necessary changes without deviating from the original plan too much.

In 1907, the Kingdom's dignitaries were invited to lay the foundation stone of the building, in the presence of the royal family. After King Peter I laid the cornerstone of the building, construction began. But over the years, construction stopped again and again. Once it was due to the Balkan wars, which began in 1912. Once again the halted construction due to the World War I and again it was halted due to the Great Depression of 1929.

Incidentally, in 1918, at the end of World War I, Yugoslavia was established. It was declared the kingdom of Slavic southern peoples, the peoples of Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. In order to adapt the building to change, the plans of the building were changed again to fit a multi-national state. The changes were once again performed by a new architect. It was the son of architect Jovan Ilkić, who has since passed away ...

The magnificent building was finally completed in 1936, during the reign of Peter II of Yugoslavia. In 1941, after the Nazi invasion of World War II, the German High Command took up residence in the occupied parliament building. From here they commanded all of southern Europe.

On October 5, 2000, the masses stormed the old Yugoslav parliament, already the parliament of Serbia. This was during the demonstrations, at the end of which the nationalist leader Slobodan Milosevic was overthrown. During these events the building was severely damaged, but afterwards the damage was repaired and it returned to being one of the most beautiful buildings in Belgrade.

Terazije Fountain
#About the Fountain that Commemorates How Water, Until the 19th Century, Was Brought to Belgrade

Terazije Fountain is not a special or impressive water fountain or performance. This fountain is a relic and a reminder of the ancient water towers of Belgrade. By 1860 there were no drinking fountains in town. The water towers provided the residents of Belgrade with water and were also called "water ladders."

The word "Terazije" means ladders. Indeed, the fountain is located in the center of a square that bears the name. The square and the fountain are a historical site that reminds and preserves the memory of the period when water did not reach faucets in the houses of residents.
NATO Bombing Scars
#About the Ruins of the Bombings of the Civil War in Yugoslavia

In the Serbian war, after the collapse of the Communist bloc, the government buildings were bombed by NATO aircrafts in 1999. The Serbs have left part of the ruins of these NATO bombing scars on one of the city's main streets. Like theatrical memorials, the ruined government buildings stand as a remnant of an era that the Serbs will be happy to forget.

Still, the people of Belgrade have grown accustomed to these monsters on their main street. Whether the ruins are left here because of the desire to present history and warn of similar acts in the future, or whether it stems from a shortage of money and a budget deficit that will pay for the rehabilitation of many of the city's tourists sites, these buildings became a monument to the past, nations on the use of force against innocent people.
