First Serbian Crowne Plaza opens

InterContinental Hotels Group opened the first Crowne Plaza in Serbia - Crowne Plaza Belgrade. 

Originally opened as InterContinental Belgrade in 1979, the hotel was bought by Delta Holding in 2008. Delta Holding has since signed a new management agreement with IHG and has invested in the transformation of this hotel into a Crowne Plaza. The hotel’s exterior has been retained whilst the interior has been restyled.

Located in the business district of Belgrade, the hotel is a five minute drive from Belgrade’s city center and a 15 minute drive from Nikola Tesla International Airport.
