OUR (HI)STORY

Our story began in 1961 right after the adoption of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, marking the beginning of the golden age of diplomacy.

Grasping the essence and the importance of the Convention, in 1962 the City of Belgrade, established a Directorate for the Management and Construction of Foreign Diplomatic and Consular Buildings and entrusted its management to the City of Belgrade’s Real Estate Fund. The purpose of this was to establish a seamless procedure for managing all publicly owned properties that, at the time, were intended for housing foreign diplomatic and consular missions, international organisations and their employees.

Through challenging times, and significant changes to the legal form and name of the management company, the Dipos team has remained dedicated to one goal – making expats and the diplomatic community in Serbia feel at home.
