Smederevo is a city in Serbia, on the right side of the Danube river, about 45 kilometres downstream of the capital Belgrade. According to official results of the 2011 census, the city has a population of 108,209. It is the administrative center of the Podunavlje District.

Smederevo history starts in the 1st century BC, with the conquerings of the Roman Empire, when there existed a town called Vinceia. The modern city traces its roots back to the late Middle Ages when it was the capital (1430–1439 and 1444–1459) of the last independent Serbian state before the Ottoman conquest.

The population of the city increased between 2002 and 2008. This increase is most likely because of the large number of Serb refugees and internally displaced persons from Kosovo (in 2003, that number was 7,152, not including those who moved permanently to Smederevo since the last census, and those who came to live with their relatives). They settled mostly in urban parts of Smederevo, but also in some suburban settlements such as Lipe, Udovice, Radinac, Vučak, Umčari and Petrijevo.

Smederevo is twinned with this towns:

Post

Serbia has a postal service since 1840 and it was one of 21 countries which founded the Universal Postal Union in 1874 in Bern. Serbia Post is today a public, state owned company with post offices in almost every village. Postal service is pretty good and reliable.
