|The Belgrade Fortress Kalemegdan sits above the confluence of the Sava and the Danube river in Belgrade. It is the oldest part and was the core of the historic walled city. The city was then known as Griechisch Weißenburg (Kriechisch Wyssenburg and Alba Graeca)
Satellite view is showing Belgrade the "White City", largest city and the national capital of Serbia, located at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. The city, which takes up a strategic location on land and water routes between the Balkans and central Europe, has a long history.
Paleo-Balkan tribes of Thracians and Dacians ruled this area prior to the Roman conquest. But it was a Celtic tribe who built a fortified settlement at the site where the Sava river joins the Danube. They named the place Singidūn. In 34–33 BC the Roman army led by Silanus reached the area of the settlement. The Romans decided to stay, possibly because they spotted the strategic location in no time. 200 years later, the city was proclaimed a municipium by the Roman authorities, the town had evolved into a full-fledged colonia (the highest city class in conquered territory).
Others were also interested in the place, there were the goodwill visits of Attila the Hun, Theodoric the Great, the Ostrogoths and the Byzantines, some 100,000 Slavs, and the Pannonian Avars. The city was the stage of the friendly 400 year long competition between the Byzantine Empire, the Kingdom of Hungary and the Bulgarian Empire for the right to rule the city. In 1096 the Fist Crusade reached the city, coming from Cologne on their way to Jeusalem. The Crusaders looted some stuff, set the city on fire and vanished in direction of Constantiopel. In 1456 the city was unsuccessful besieged by the Ottoman under Sultan Mehmed II.
Almost 500 years later in 1918 Belgrade became the capital of Yugoslavia until the country's final dissolution in 2006. Today the ciy is the national capital of Serbia wih a population in its larger-city area (Belgrade Region) of 1.67 million inhabitants (in 2014).
