Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. Its name translates to "White city". The urban area of the City of Belgrade has a population of 1.34 million, while over 1.65 million people live within its administrative limits.
Hotel Moskva is a four star hotel in Belgrade, one of the oldest currently operating in Serbia.
Apart from offering hospitality services, Hotel Moskva is one of the most recognizable Belgrade landmarks, a valuable architectural monument placed under governmental protection since 1968. Originally operating as a 36-room inn within the multipurpose Palace Rossiya, whose almost 3-year construction and January 1908 opening represented a major investment of the Russian Empire in the Kingdom of Serbia economy, Hotel Moskva eventually expanded its facilities to take up the entire palace.
Today, in addition to 132 rooms (40 of them duplex rooms) and 6 apartments, the hotel's two restaurants (one with international and other with national cuisine) are one of the rare Belgrade spots that also serve vegetarian meals. The hotel also has a snack bar, the famous old-fashioned café and a summer garden that's very popular not only with guests, but with Belgraders too.
