Belgrade as it is the capital and largest city of Serbia. The Neolithic Starevo and Vina cultures existed in or near Belgrade and dominated the Balkans about 7,000 years ago. Belgrade is the largest city in the territory of the former Yugoslavia and the fourth largest in Southeastern Europe, after Istanbul, Athens, and Bucharest. Where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkan Peninsula. With a population of over 1.9 million. Since the 19th century, the city has been expanding to the south and east, and after World War II, New Belgrade was built on the Savas left bank, merging Belgrade with Zemun.


The Belgrade Circle takes its greates pride in succeeding to attract courageous citizens, those disappointed and critical voices who have openly fought against the militaristic politics of Serbian regime, and specially, against ethno-nationalism, populism, war crimes and ethnical cleansing in the territory of Former Yugoslavia. 


In the period of 1992-1995 the Belgrade Circle conducted the project of Saturday Sessions (public lectures and discussions attended by both members and non-members) which hosted approximately 140 intellectuals from all former Yugoslav republics and abroad.

 

 

These public gatherings, which represented a vital core for the political and cultural life of the so-called 'Other (in sense different, non-nationalistic) Serbia', were envisioned as opposition to the militaristic nationalism of Milosevic's regime, to its xenophobia and populism which had overtaken the Serbian society in the early 1990s. 'The Other Serbia' revisited legitimating to wars in Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia, thus sending a powerful message to Europe and the world that not all citizens of Serbia stand united in support of bloodshed and genocide.

 

TheSaturday Sessions' voluminous documentation and material was collected in two volumes edited by Ivan Čolović and Aljoša Mimica: The Other Serbia (1992) andIntellectuals and War (1993) – both were translated and published in many languages:French, Italian, Greek and German.


In the course of war and dramatic disintegration of socialist Yugoslavia, the Belgrade Circle maintained and fostered permanent contact with like-minded organizations in former Yugoslav republics.

 

 

These ties were particularly strong with friends in Sarajevo, Mostar and Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina) whom the Belgrade Circle delegation visited several times during the war, bombing and occupation. These visits were organized in the name of international solidarity and political friendship.
