40TH ANNUAL EUROPEAN THYROID ASSOCIATION (ETA) MEETING
Hotel Crowne Plaza BelgradeBELGRADE, BELGIUM Visit the Venue to read more
Belgrade is the capital of Serbia with a population of nearly 2 million, making it the largest city in the region. It is uniquely located at the confluence of two big rivers the Sava and the Danube. Its history dates back to the Celts and Ancient Rome and the influence of the latter is still visible to this day.
Belgrade is the centre of culture, education, economy and science in Serbia, but what the city is most famous for is its unique spirit. The streets of Belgrade are bustling with constant energy. They provide a range of activities to suit all tastes at any time of the day. Restaurants offer different cuisines, from the traditional to the contemporary. Traditional food can also be found at the colourful open markets which you can explore in the mornings. At night, the city doesn’t sleep. The river banks are the hub of Belgrade nightlife. Belgrade is also worth visiting for its street art. The city is the convergence of ancient history and modern lifestyle and it is considered to be the Balkan equivalent of Berlin.
Belgrade is open to all European nations because of its very liberal visa policy, and it is directly connected to over 60 major destinations all over the continent. Once you arrive at the “Nikola Tesla” airport, it takes approximately 20 minutes to drive to the city centre. The venue, Hotel Crowne plaza, is located near the river Sava in the new part of the city. The old city centre is just across the Sava bridge, not more than 15 minutes away. Taxis and public transport are available 24/7.
We are looking forward to hosting the 40th Annual Meeting of the European Thyroid Association in 2017, and welcoming delegates to Belgrade. We hope that you will enjoy both the meeting and the city.
