Blazing, buoyant and beguiling, Belgrade bursts at the seams with a spectacular contemporary vigor, thus earning the moniker ‘the city that never sleeps.’ Serbia's biggest city and also its capital, Belgrade is nestled on the concourse of the mighty Danube and Sava rivers. The national capital's history dates back to as early as 4th Century BCE, when it was first inhabited by the Celtic clan, after which it went under the hegemony of the Ostrogoths, Hungarian, Byzantines, Gepids and Bulgarians, among many others; it is this diverse history that translates itself into the present-day infrastructure of the city. As a result, Belgrade’s cityscape is dominated by myriad architectural styles like Academic, Neoclassicism and Romanticism, which hearken back to many of its iconic eras. Although the city is stippled with a wide arsenal of historical and cultural landmarks, some which stand out strikingly are the Church of Saint Sava, an almost-palatial edifice which sits under exquisite teal domes, and the majestic Belgrade Fortress, which proffers some spectacular vistas of the city horizon. On the flip side, Belgrade, with its ravishing ensemble of nightclubs and pubs, is also famed for its innovative gastronomy and a scintillating nighttime revelry, when the whole city metamorphoses into a canvas set ablaze with a multitude of lights.
