Full description

Discover the highlights and neighborhoods of Belgrade on a shared or private tour. Visit Kalemegdan, the Belgrade Fortress, the Zemun citadel, the Vračar area, Slavija Square, and more. See some of Belgrade's most significant sights by car and on foot.

The first stop is Kalemegdan, the oldest and largest park in the city center, and the magnificent Belgrade Fortress: Leopold’s Gate, Zindan Gate, Despot’s Gate, Jakšića tower, Chapel of St Petka, and Ružica Church (Virgin Mary Church). Continue the walk through the Upper town: the Victor monument, the Roman well, the King’s gate, the Sava promenade, the Damat Ali Pasha Tomb, Clock Gate, and Clock Tower, Military Museum, and Monument of Gratitude to France. See New Belgrade’s impressive modern architecture: Ex-Central Committee of the Communist Party, Federal Executive Council, also known as Palace of Federation, Genex Tower, Sava Center, one of the biggest congress halls in this part of Europe, etc. After New Belgrade, reach Zemun, the northern area of Belgrade, characteristic for its Central European appearance, charming quarters, cobblestone streets, and fish restaurants on the Danube River banks.

See Gospodska Street, the Post Office, Hotel Central, Town Museum, and the House with a Sundial, then reach the top of the hill, we’ll see the remains of the Zemun citadel that are still standing together with The Millennium Tower in the center, Zemun’s central landmark. Go down the Gardos Hill to the town center and reach the Main City Square with the Bishop’s Office and the Roman Catholic Church of the Blessed Virgin from the 18th century. Cross the Gazela Bridge and head for Dedinje – Belgrade’s most luxurious residential area. See some of the mansions in the city, perfectly nestled in the greenery and serenity of Topčider Hill. Spot the country’s biggest soccer stadium, the home of Red Star Belgrade. Leave the city and head towards Avala, Belgrade’s green mountain. Situated less than 20 km south of the city center, it is one of Belgrade’s most popular green areas, a perfect spot for recreation, picnic, or just enjoying nature.

Drive through green forests until we reach the highest spot of Avala with the Monument to the Unknown Hero. After that, go down to the second largest hilltop of Avala, 440 m high, where Avala tower is situated. Coming from Avala, visit the Vračar area, where you can see one of Belgrade’s most prominent landmarks – The Church of St. Sava (also known as St. Sava Temple), one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world. Through Slavija Square, enter Nemanjina Street with almost all state governmental institutions: Government Building, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, General Staff of Serbian Army, Ministry of Railways, Ministry of Finance, the State Court, etc.

Later, stop in front of the Parliament Building, where you'll take a short break to take pictures. Round off the tour at Republic Square, the heart of the capital, where the city’s most prestigious cultural institutions are situated.

We had a fabulous tour of the city. Our guide Jelena went out of her way to ensure that we saw all of the main attractions and more in our one day tour. And the driver was also excellent ensuring that he got us to as many attractions as possible despite road closures due to the marathon that was on. Highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed a lot our private day tour with Vesna. She fully met our expectations and also was very flexible. The driver Goran was also very friendly and drove the car to our best comfort. We visited the Avala tower the day before this tour and wanted to see the House of Flowers instead which is the place where Tito is buried. Vesna adopted the program very professionally to our needs. The House of Flowers is a place I would recommend to visit if you are interested in the newer Serbian history.

Such a lovely way to experience the main attractions of Belgrade. Our guide Milan gave us so much context to every place, and spoke about the history of the region. I definitely learnt a lot with this trip, and had a really fun day hanging out with a great group of people. Highly recommend!
