10th IAPC Meeting will take place in the University of Belgrade Rectorate building.
Born more than 2000 years ago at the confluence of two mighty rivers, Danube and Sava, Singidunum was home to Celts, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, Slavs. It has been living as Belgrade for 1145 years, always in contact with different cultures. Belgrade accepted them all and grew up in a modern European metropolis with a cosmopolitan spirit. Its rich cultural heritage testifies to a long and often turbulent history, but the greatest value of this place is its joyful and warm people. Welcome to Belgrade, a city where you will feel at home.
In the period from 1857 to 1863, captain Miša Anastasijević built one of the most beautiful buildings in Belgrade. Its mixture of Gothic, Romanesque and Renaissance architectural styles also points to the transformation of an oriental into a European city. After its construction, captain Miša donated the building to the fatherland for educational purposes. The sculptures of Apollo with a lyre and Minerva with a shield and a spear on the frontal part of the decoratively finished facade allude to the artistic and scientific purpose of the building. In 1863 the Great School, the forerunner of today's University of Belgrade, was moved here. Today it is the headquarters of the Rectorate of the University of Belgrade, an institution of national importance for the Republic of Serbia.
The university rectorate is located conveniently in the center of the city in close vicinity of the Faculty of Chemistry, where a two-day Drug development course will take place as a pre-event for the conference.
