Belgrade was also the host city for the 25th Summer Universiade in 2009. It welcomed around 6000 competitors from 122 countries all over the world. As many participants said, the competition was remarkable, an experience that will always be remembered; not just because of the 30 broken records, but because of the hospitality of the organizer.
