The city of Belgrade


Belgrade is the capital of Serbia and has about 2 million inhabitants. It is situated in South-Eastern Europe, on the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroads of routes that connect Western and Central Europe with the Aegean and Black Sea, Turkey and the Middle East. Its coordinates are 44°49'14" of northern latitude and 20°27'44" of eastern longitude, 116.75 m above sea level (city center, middle of Knez Mihailova Street). Time zone is Central European - CET (GMT + 1 hour).

Belgrade lies at the point where the river Sava merges into the Danube, on the slope between two alluvial planes. The river waters surround it from three sides, and that is why since ancient times it has been the guardian of river passages. Because of its position it was properly called "the gate" of the Balkans, and "the door" to Central Europe. Along the ridge of the slope, from Kalemegdan, along the Knez Mihailova street, across Terazije to Slavija, stretches the main city traffic artery.


Belgrade has a moderate continental climate. The average annual air temperature is 11,9°C. Autumn is longer than spring, with longer sunny and warm periods. Winter is not so severe, with an average of 21 days with temperature below zero. January is the coldest month, with average temperature of 0.1°C. Spring is short and rainy.

Belgrade has a characteristic south-eastern and eastern wind called "košava", which brings fair and dry weather. It is most frequent in the fall and winter, lasting for 2-3 days with a speed of 25-43 km/h.
