Sopot (Serbian Cyrillic: Сопот, pronounced [sɔ̂pɔːt]) is a suburban neighborhood and one of 17 city municipalities which constitute the city of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Its name derives from the old Slavic word for spring (sr. izvor). According to the 2011 census results, the municipality has a population of 20,199 inhabitants.

It is located near the mountain Kosmaj. The municipality has a large primary and economics high school, one of the largest in the Balkans.[citation needed] Sopot has a soccer club called the Wolves from Kosmaj and a basketball club, also called the Wolves from Kosmaj.
