Belgrade is the capital city of Serbia and has a population of around 1.7 million. The city lies on two international waterways, at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, which surround it on three sides. But that’s not all these rivers have to offer! During the summer there are plenty of clubs in heaving barges on both rivers, as Belgrade transforms into a party town. But more on that when we announce the European Design post-ceremony party!
