Hotel Moskva – One of the oldest hotels in Serbia


Welcome to the Hotel Moskva, a landmark of Belgrade. This is one of the most important architectural gems of the Serbian capital, built in the style of the Russian Secession. King Peter I Karadjordjevic opened this magnificent building in 1908. Since then this hotel visited over 45 million people. Just imagine how many more there will be.

Hotel Moskva is located at the Terazije square, in the very heart of Belgrade. It has been under state protection since the second half of the previous century.  The hotel is within a pedestrian distance to all historical and cultural sights. It is only a few minutes away from the bus and train stations, and 18 km away from the airport. Because of its location and appearance itself, it is a favorite of many.

For 113 years, this impressive building has been one of the main landmarks and symbols of Belgrade. Not only that. It is also a meeting place and lodging for artists and politicians. The ordinary and business world. Kings and presidents. It is the only hotel in Belgrade that has no room or apartment number 13.


The history of Hotel Moskva

Hotel Moskva was built on the site of the former cafe Greater Serbia. The hotel primarily operated as a building of the Palace of Russia, with 36 rooms. After almost three years of construction, the hotel was opened in 1908 and was a major investment of the Russian Empire and the Kingdom of Serbia. The construction cost around two million gold dinars at that time. Over time, the Hotel Moskva expanded its capacity and occupied the entire palace.

During all these years, many people have passed through this hotel. Many of them were big names in Yugoslav and Serbian literature and culture. Our Nobel laureate Ivo Andric had his own table here. He constantly drank the same thing: mild Turkish coffee with a cube of ratluk. When he won the Nobel Prize, Andric became very popular. So, in order to escape from prying eyes, he switched to a table in the restaurant gallery.

However, what the hotel can boast of is a large number of world-famous names, some of which are Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Roman Polanski, Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, Muammar el Gaddafi, Richard Nixon, and many others.


Today Hotel Moskva continues to attract and amaze not only foreign guests but its own Belgraders too. It is a top one meeting point. It is no wonder, though, because it is still fascinating.
