During the first half of the 19th century, the principality of Serbia began to establish diplomatic relations with other countries. The autonomous status that Serbia had within the Ottoman Empire, enabled the diplomatic missions of other countries in Belgrade starting in the 1830s. The first diplomatic relations were established between the Habsburg Empire and the Principality of Serbia, led by Miloš Obrenović. Diplomatic cooperation was soon established with Russia, Great Britain and France. The establishment of diplomatic relations with the then important European countries was an important step in the process of gaining independence, which would follow at the Berlin Congress in 1878.
Foreign missions in Belgrade are located in representative buildings that are either owned by other countries or rented Belgrade houses. Some of these buildings have the status of cultural property.
The beginnings of Serbian diplomacy date back to medieval Serbia at the end of the 12th and during the 13th century, but the beginning of modern Serbian diplomacy is connected with the beginning of the First Serbian Uprising in 1804.
The earliest mission of a foreign country in autonomous Serbia was the mission of the Habsburg Monarchy, which sent its first consul Antun Mihanović to the Principality of Serbia in 1836.
