Hotel Skadarlija, About Belgrade
Belgrade, a city of very turbulent history, is one of the oldest in Europe. His history lasts for 7,000 years. The area around the great Sava and Danube rivers was settled even in the Paleolithic period. From the early Stone Age, remains of human bones and skulls of Neanderthals, found in the quarry near Leštane, in the cave on Čukarica and near Bajlonijeva pijaca. The remains of the culture of the young Stone Age were found in Vinča, Žarkovo and Gornji grad, above the confluence of the Sava in the Danube. This indicates that the area of Belgrade was inhabited continuously and that the intensity of this settlement has become stronger. Many of today's settlements of the Belgrade surrounding lie on the cultural layers of the prehistoric prehistoric settlements. Vinche near Belgrade is among the most important settlements and cultural sites of the prehistoric period.
