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.
