It is one of the oldest cities in Europe, first settled in the 3rd century BC by the Celts before becoming the Roman settlement of Singidunum. The name Beograd (Belgrade) was first mentioned in 878 AD. It has been the capital of Serbia since 1404, and was the capital of Yugoslavia from 1918 until 2003.

The city lies at the confluence of the Sava and Danube in north central Serbia, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. The official population of the Belgrade region is 1,576,124. Unofficially (taking into account the large number of Serbian refugees and displaced persons from Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and the province of Kosovo-Metohia), the population probably surpasses 2 million. It is the largest city on the territory of the former Yugoslavia, and by population ranks fourth in the Balkans behind Istanbul, Athens and Bucharest.

Middle ages

Singidunum experienced occupation by successive invaders of the region — Huns, Sarmatians, Ostrogoths and Avars — before the arrival of the Slavs around 630 AD. In 878 the city was renamed Beligrad ("white fortress" or "white town") under the rule of the First Bulgarian Empire. For approximately 400 years, it remained a Bulgarian frontier town, often known as the region of "Belgrade and Branichevo." During that period, however, the city was also a subject to Byzantine rivalry and rule, before it finally emerged as a stronghold of the medieval Serbian kingdom. It was a major traffic point on a crusade route which led from Western Europe to Middle East. The Huns were a confederation of Eurasian tribes, most likely of diverse origin with a Turkic-speaking aristocracy, who appeared in Europe in the 4th century, the most famous being Attila the Hun. ...

After a terrible defeat in the Battle of Kosovo of 1389, the Serbian Empire began to crumble, and by the beginning of next century most of it had been conquered by the Ottoman Empire. However, the Serbian Despotate in the north, with Belgrade as its capital, resisted for another 60 years, the last Christian state in the Balkans to do so. Belgrade flourished under Despot Stefan Lazarević, son of Tsar Lazar Hrebljanović. Its ancient walls were refortified, along with its castles, harbours and churches, resisting surrender to the Ottoman Turks. At that time Belgrade became a haven for many Balkan peoples escaping Ottoman control. In 1453, the Serbian Despotate fell to the Ottomans, but Belgrade itself invited in Hungarian kings for protection. The Ottomans, however, wanted Belgrade no matter what the cost as it was considered the "key to the Balkans". That resulted in their invasion in 1456 and the Siege of Belgrade. John Hunyadi successfully defended the city from the Ottomans. This war brought the city the reputation of the "Guardian of Christianity" and it was celebrated throughout Europe. At that time Belgrade reached its peak of glory with its population numbering well over 100,000 people of many nations, regulating traffic between East and West, becoming a "Christian Mecca" and a cultural hub for South-Eastern Europe. However, this period was not to last.

Turkish conquest

In 1521, the fort was recaptured by the Ottoman Turks, and Belgrade remained under Ottoman rule for nearly three centuries. By 1526 Turks had already conquered southern Hungary, by 1541 they held the Hungarian capital, Buda, and by 1563 were already knocking on the door of Western Europe in Vienna. The city of Belgrade deteriorated as its buildings were demolished and robbed by "non-believers". It was the site of a major rebellion in 1594 (Banat rebellion), which was brutally crushed by the Turks, burning the churches and even the coffins of the House of Nemanjić - see Temple of Saint Sava. Thrice occupied by Austria (1688-1690, 1717-1739, 1789-1791), the city was affected by the two Great Serbian Migrations, in which hundreds of thousands of Serbs, led by their patriarchs, retreated together with the Austrians into the Habsburg Empire in 1690 and 1737, settling in today's Vojvodina and Slavonia. The city was also briefly held from 1806 to 1813 by Serbian forces during the First Serbian Uprising against Ottoman rule, and in 1817 it became the capital of the autonomous Principality of Serbia (except in the period from 18181839, when Kragujevac was the country's capital).

After independence

With the departure of its Turkish garrison in 1867, Serbia's full independence in 1878 and its transformation into the Kingdom of Serbia in 1882, Belgrade became a key city in the Balkans. But despite the opening of a railway to Niš, Serbia's second city, conditions in Serbia as a whole remained those of an overwhelmingly agrarian country, and in 1900 the capital had only 69,000 inhabitants. However by the outbreak of WWI in 1914 the city has grown to over 100,000, not counting the settlements on the northern sides of Sava and Danube that belonged to Austro-Hungary. 1867 (MDCCCLXVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ... 1878 (MDCCCLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ...
