Its unique location at the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers – on the border between the East and the West – has earned the Serbian capital of Belgrade the fitting nickname, “Gateway to the Balkans.”  The city’s turbulent history has seen numerous wars and destruction across the centuries as one of Europe’s oldest cities and the 3rd largest in Southeastern Europe after Istanbul and Athens. Today, a re-invented, vibrant Belgrade is a youthful city with more than 40% of residents between the ages of 15 and 44. That youthful zest for life translates into one of Europe’s most energetic nightlife scenes. Peace in the Balkans has led to the emergence of tourism and an increasing number of Danube River cruises now make stops in the Serbian capital so that visitors can enjoy sights like the Belgrade Fortress and the cobbled streets of the Old Town.
