Meal plan : Breakfast


Belgrade has been the capital of Serbia since 1403, when Despot Stefan, son of Prince Lazar, moved his palace here. Walk through the elegant Republic Square and pay attention to its architectural monuments, such as the National Theatre and the National Museum. Stroll along Knez Mihajlova Street, the main shopping street and meeting place, to see a few other masterpieces of Belgrade architecture. 

The Fortress of Kalemegdan, which is the symbol of Belgrade, is where the River Sava flows into the Danube. The Upper fortress area includes well-preserved artillery structures dating from the 18th century, as well as a medieval fortification - an acropolis with original or partly reconstructed ramparts, gateways, towers and the excavated ruins of a 15th century castle. A few Turkish monuments and some ancient Roman remains also lie in this area. In this section of the fortification complex you’ll see the elegant 18th century Baroque Clock Tower and the Roman Well. The Eastern Ward features the Rose Church of Our Lady, along with a panoramic view of the Lower fortress and its monuments - the Nebojsa Tower, the Baroque Gate of Karl VI and the remains of the medieval metropolitan palace.

Day 3 : Avala - Topola

Visit Avala and Topola. Traditional lunch in a traditional setting. Return to Belgrade for overnight.

After breakfast drive up to Avala, a small peak on the suburbs of Belgrade where you will find the famous TV tower (destroyed in the NATO bombings of 1999 and since rebuilt) and the Monument to the Unknown Hero and some other war memorials. Stay and enjoy the excellent views over the city and over the contiguous provinces of Vojvodina and Sumadija. Continue to Topola and the stunning Oplenac Royal Mausoleum with mosaics in the various styles of mosaics throughout Serbia. This is also the resting place of Karadorde's bones, one of the hero's of the first Serbian Uprising in the early 1800s and is thus highly revered by Serbians of all political stripes. We will stop for a delicious traditional lunch in an ethno restaurant. After lunch, relax on the grounds of the restaurant before returning to Belgrade in the mid-afternoon. Overnight in Belgrade.

Meal plan : Breakfast & lunch


Topola sits in  the hilly Šumadija region,  the heart of central Serbia known as the cradle of Serbian uprisings against Ottoman rule in the 19th century. It boasts the Residence of Karadjordje (now a museum dedicated to the leader of the First Serbian Uprising); the Church of Our Lady, built by Karadjordje (1811-1813); and two stone towers which are left from what was once a mighty fortification. Nearby is St. George Church, built after WWI by the King of Serbia, Petar I, on top of Oplenac. This church is unique among all the monuments in Serbia, with columns made of marble, an iconostasis of local marble and stunning mosaics covering almost 3,500 sq. meters, which include 725 scenes and 1,500 human figures that chart the history and the extent of Orthodox Christianity in Serbia.
