The first human settlements on Belgrade soil developed as far back as 7000 years ago. This is borne out by numerous archaeological sites with material evidence, ranging from the culture of the Old Stone Age and other prehistoric cultures, to the Middle Ages. The sites are not arranged for visitors, and the material remnants are for the most part kept in the National Museum.

Vinča, 14 km away from Belgrade on the way to Grocka, is a prehistoric tell on the very bank of the Danube, with the remnants of the material culture of the prehistoric man (the Neolithic plastics). In the caves in Bele vode there were found skeletons of the Neanderthal man. The most widespread culture in the territory of Europe at the time is called after the site in Vinča.
