Belgrade is the capital of Serbia with a population of about 1.7 million population. Belgrade has a significant role in the region in terms of traffic – it is an important road and railway intersection and serves as a very important international river port, as well as air traffic and telecommunications center. Belgrade is the crossroad of Eastern and Western Europe through which the valleys of Morava - Vardar and Nishava - Marica lead to the shore of the Aegean Sea, towards Asia Minor and the Middle East. Belgrade lies on the Danube, the waterway which links Western and Central European countries with the countries of Southeast and Eastern Europe. Due to the construction of the Djerdap artificial lake and power plant Belgrade became a river-sea port. Ships from the Black Sea sail into its harbors and, with the opening of the Rhine – Main - Danube channel for traffic, came to the center of the most important waterway in Europe: the North Sea – Atlantic – Black Sea.
