Sunday Bridges: the Siege of Belgrade

Belgrade was besieged many times in its history, as early as 488. In the siege of Belgrade from September 15th 1789, an army of Hapsburg Austria besieged an Ottoman Turkish forces in Belgrade and three weeks later succeeded in capturing the fortress. Austria held the city until 1791 when it handed Belgrade back to the Ottomans according to the terms of the peace treaty. Serbia remained under Turkish rule until 1878.
