The white city
If I am not wrong, Belgrade means "The White City".
It does have a lot of white. However because white is a colour that makes the dirt quite visible, it gets rather greyish in many areas of the town. Seen from the other side of the River Sava, the white, not-so-clean buildings, and the sketchy look reminds of some Portuguese cities.
The hill of old Belgrade reminds me of the town of Coimbra, Portugal.
Beograd means white town . Well not so much white , but stil beautiful.It is 2 millions citizens city with lots to be seen.Don't miss Kalemegdan,Skadarlija Street with great restourants . For sure go for a walk near rivers Danube and Sava , if you come during summer you should go by boat to see how wonderful it looks from river...
Belgrade has more then 2,000,000 citizens and its territory covers an area of 322,268 ha (inner-city area covers 35,996 ha), and it is administratively divided into 17 municipalities:
9. Novi Beograd
13. Savski venac

and 7 suburban municipalities
Founded in 1844, it is the oldest Museum in Belgrade.
Its establishment was attributed to Jovan Sterija Popovic who was minister of education at the time the museum was opened. During the years the museum the museum changed its name and place many times.In 1915, during the First World War it was bombed and many valuables were destroyed. It took the name of National Museum in 1950 and moved the to the building of the ex-Mortgage Bank (Republic Square=Trg Republike)
