This Symposium has great importance in terms of being one of the largest Silk Road Studies Forums in the world, addressing a multidisciplinary and diachronic realm of fundamental research and bringing academicians from different parts of the world together.


The Silk Road was a world famous trade route that connected China and Europe, passing through most of the known world, including Anatolia and the Mediterranean. The Silk Road was not merely a trade route but also a scientific and art-world life-line introducing Eastern philosophy, culture, techniques and wisdom to Europe, and vice versa, to the Easternmost terminus in Nara, the ancient capital of Japan. The spices coming from the East played an important role in daily life of the wealthy in the West. Carrying the silk and spices of Eastern world to the West by caravans, gave birth to trade routes from China to Europe.


The 3rd International Symposium on The Silk Road Academic Studies that will be held in Belgrade, is aimed at examining the Silk Road and destinations on the Silk Road in terms of history, culture, economy, politics, society, arts and literature.
