Belgrade is the capital of Serbia, one of four captitals on our route (the others being Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest). It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers and at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkan Peninsula.

Belgrade is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe and the world. One of the most important prehistoric cultures of Europe, the Vinča culture, evolved within the Belgrade area in the 6th millennium BC.

From Belgrade, Saga Farmann will sail downstream through Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania before reaching the Black Sea.
