About Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital of Serbia. It is located at the crossroad location as a gateway to South-Eastern Europe. It is the place where two major rivers, Sava and Danube, meet each other, and where old-world culture meets the hip and modern. Belgrade is a dynamic capital, famed as the city that never sleeps, endowed with a long and storied history. It was fought over, destroyed and rebuilt many times, which is nowadays inscribed in its strong spirit, architecture, its people and the overall way of life.

Belgrade offers elaborate architecture spanning ages from Byzantine to romantic to art nouveau, from the ancient Kalemegdan Citadel, the crown of the city, via Knez Mihailova, a lively pedestrian boulevard flanked by historical buildings, along many art nouveau palaces including national Parliament building, dating between the two world wars, all the way to Byzantine-style Saint Sava temple, one of the largest orthodox churches in the world. The main values of the city are, however, its citizens, loud, happy, outgoing, hospitable, and always open to meeting new people. 

Venue

Sava Center is a versatile congress center located in the heart of the business district of New Belgrade, across the Sava river from central Belgrade, and in close proximity to major hotels. With its functional concept, it holds a unique position on the map of European congress centers, as it offers three different experiences in one place: congress, business, and culture. Sava Center is the largest congress, cultural, and business center in Serbia and Southeast Europe, covering an area of 100,000 m2. It is one of Belgrade’s most significant landmarks in the field of modern architecture. Conceived by architect Stojan Maksimović and opened in 1977, it was nominated for the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, often referred to as the “Oscar of architecture”. After recent multimillion investments, Sava Center once again represents a modern place where you can experience unique moments.
