Imagine opening your eyes to the sound of the forest waking up. You can see the sky brighten through the glass dome just above your bed, and outside your door a wild natural landscape unfolds. Indulge in this amazing tour that will undoubtedly leave an remarkable trace in your mind.
Upon arrival at Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, you will be welcomed by your driver and escorted to the hotel. On the short coach ride from the Nikola Tesla airport, sit back, relax and enjoy the sights of New Belgrade with its prominent ‘blocks’ – a classic example of Socialist architecture, built after the World War II – and modern business centers, including the imposing Ušće Tower. Along the way, you will pass by some of the most iconic buildings such as the Western Gate of Belgrade, the famous Belgrade Arena and the monumental Palace of Serbia. Hotel check in.
At 7pm meet your guide and the rest of the group at the hotel’s reception for a tour info-meeting. Our reccomendation for the evening: take a short, leisurely walk through one of the oldest quarters towards the bohemian heart of Belgrade – Skadarlija. In this charming, 19th century cobbled street you will find many ‘kafanas’, a traditional cafe-bar, where you can try delicious local specialties while listening to a traditional music. Or perhaps walk down to the bank of river Sava and enjoy a stretch of buzzing, modern bars and cafes in the newest developement of the city: Belgrade Waterfront.

After breakfast, you will embark on a tour (driving and walking) around Belgrade, a capital city well known for its various architectural styles, dynamic history and a fantastic view of the confluence of rivers Sava and the Danube, one of largest in Europe. Start the tour visiting the Museum of Yugoslav History, a memorial complex devoted to the life and deeds of Josip Broz Tito, the political leader of Yugoslavia. Next, you will pass by the stadium of FC Red Star – the former European and World Cup champions, and proceed to the Temple of Saint Sava, Belgrade’s patron saint. Very much a symbol of the city, this impressive building can be seen from any part of the capital.
After a short break at the Temple’s plateau, the panoramic tour will then take you from Slavija Square, to Saint Mark’s Church, the Serbian National Parliament and White Palace, and on to Republic Square. This most central point of Belgrade is surrounded by such cultural institutions as the National Theatre and National Museum. The tour will then head along the lively Knez Mihailo Street, the main pedestrian and shopping zone, before stopping for a visit to the Orthodox Cathedral Church of Saint Michael the Archangel, which is located just across from the Building of Patriarchate. Your guide will tell you about the tavern around the corner, the oldest in the city and intriguingly known as “?” (Question Mark), before continuing to Kalemegdan Park and Belgrade Fortress, the most important cultural-historic complex of the city, situated on the confluence of the rivers Sava and the Danube.
We will spice up the tour with a visit to the Belgrade Urban Distillery and rakija tasting. Distillery is located in the historical neighborhood of Dorćol and it is the first open-space distillery in Serbia, where direct on-site production of rakija is made for customers. You will taste authentic flavors of Serbian rakija and hear interesting stories about this traditional spirit.

For wine tasting, you will visit the pearl of secessionist architecture, the Zvonko Bogdan Winery. This magnificent building, which clearly points to the almost inevitable blend of wine and art, was built in the style of traditional architecture of the nearby town of Subotica. The winery is built with two main goals: the production of top-quality local wine and the comfort and delight of its guests.
Further on, you will visit the 2021 European Capital of Culture, Novi Sad. Located on the historical border of two former empires – the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman – as a result, the capital of Vojvodina is a multi-cultural city with an interesting mix of architectural influences. On the sightseeing tour, you will walk around the city’s pedestrian zone, past the City Hall, a Catholic church, the old city center and a synagogue. Then you’ll follow the right bank of the Danube and visit Petrovaradin, or the so-called ‘Danube’s Gibraltar’, where the fortress is located.
