Throughout many centuries, it has been striking attention to the greatest concurs Europe had ever
seen, from Roman emperors, Attila the Hun, Byzantine, and Ottoman emperors.
Because of that, many cultures were continuously replacing each other, leaving behind different
impacts. However, as all of these shifts of rulers were followed by harsh wars, the city was razed to
the ground more than 40 times. This had a direct consequence in deleting without a trace a great
deal of valuable cultural heritage sites.
Our tour today is going to be dedicated to the oriental examples of architecture, a style brought in
this area by Ottomans, during their enrolment in Belgrade.
