    Day 2

    After breakfast start a half day walking tour of Belgrade's highlights including City Hall, the National Parliament, Terazije Square from where Knez Mihajlova Street, the main pedestrian zone, begins. Walk through the beautiful Kalemegdan Park and explore the fascinating Belgrade fortress with an unforgettable view on the confluence of two of European great rivers – the Danube and the Sava.

    Belgrade has been the capital of Serbia since 1403, when Despot Stefan, son of Tsar Lazar, moved his palace here. The elegant Republic Square boasts architectonic monuments such as the National Theatre and the National Museum. Knez Mihajlova Street is the main shopping and meeting place, and contains a few other masterpieces of Belgrade's architecture such as the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and nearby in a 19th century quarter you will find the 'Question mark sign' Inn, Princess Ljubica's Residence (now housing a permanent exhibition of original furniture), the Patriarchy and the Orthodox Cathedral. A cosmopolitan and historic city sitting at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers Belgrade also sits comfortably between the past and the future. From the medieval fortress of Kalemegdan and its intriguing history on the frontier between East and West, to the city’s teeming cafés, excellent food and the best nightlife in the Balkans, Belgrade has something for everyone. Learn about life under Tito and Milosovic and how modern Serbia is preparing itself for a new era.

    Kalemegdan Fortress is situated at the confluence of the mighty Danube and Sava rivers. The Upper fortress area includes well-preserved artillery structures dating from the mid-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 older, ancient Roman remains also lie in this area. In this section of the fortification complex we will see the elegant 18th century Baroque Clock Tower and the Roman Well. The Eastern Ward includes 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

    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.
