How safe is it

I was thinking of going to Belgarde.However when I looked at the Foreign Office(UK) advice it mentioned the possibility of terrorist attacks.so can any one please tell me if any have happened in say the last 2 years and if there are terror alerts currently in place.By the way is it easy to get to Sarajevo by train and how long would it take.This being the centenary of WW1 it would be interesting to see where it all started.

Please don't let the word "terrorist" deprive you of visiting a beautiful city. There are many things to see and do in and around the city. I am planning on going this year also. My research shows it safer then many cities in the US. Just take the usual precautions.

Wingate, I was there in May and was wondering around the centre of Belgrade at 2 o'clock in the morning and I felt MUCH, MUCH safer than I would do walking around the centre of Manchester at a similar time. I didn't have no problems at all in the 4 nights I spent there, the people were brilliant. Belgrade is a cool city!!

Also, try the Rakija :P

Belgrade is a safe city, I was a bit taken back by this "terrorist" question, as it is a horrible though for any city! And As I am sure you trust whatever you are told by your government, but use your own judgement and take a look back at the statistics, in the last 5 years which city has experienced more of such cowardly acts, Belgrade or London?

Still do not understand this "terror" alert because Belgrade had never had any problems in that way... Its a very safe city from every perspective.

Are you sure the alert is not for Sarajevo?

Enjoy Serbia!

It was covered in detail but unfortunately the thread was ruined with alarmist posts and now lots of deletions, apparently one visitor had someone drilling their door so everyone should avoid the city.

So far as the 'terror alert' goes, Wingate was asking about wording on the UK foreign office site. It's more a general note of caution and quite different to telling people not to travel due to incidents or threats, when that happens the wording is quite different. The current notes of warning applies to all of Europe IMHO, nothing specific that should concern visitors to Belgrade, in fact as many observe Belgrade has been less affected in that regard.
