You will start your tour with a walk around the magnificent archaeological and historical site of Belgrade Fortress. It lays high above the Sava and Danube confluence, on the rocky ridge which opens the view of Novi Beograd, Zemun and wide plains of Pannonia. This spacious complex consists of the Fortress, divided into Upper Town and Lower Town, and the Kalemegdan Park, the most popular promenade for Belgrade citizens and visitors. You will continue your walking tour with a stroll down the vibrant Prince Michael’s street, the town’s main pedestrian area.
Then you will meet your driver for a panoramic tour around Belgrade offering the overview of the main city sites such as the City Hall, the Parliament, the National Theatre and so on. You will stop to visit the Cathedral of St. Sava, the biggest orthodox church on the Balkans and the second biggest in the world. It is built on the Vračar plateau, dominating Belgrade’s cityscape, on the location where the remains of St. Sava were allegedly burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire’s Sinan Pasha. You will continue to the luxurious residential area of Dedinje and visit the House of Flowers, the resting place of the former Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito. Built in 1975, it was designed as a winter garden of work and leisure for Josip Broz, close to his Residence. It comprises today of a central flower garden, holding Tito’s tomb, and a small museum showing Tito’s army uniforms and batons used to transfer birthday greetings to the former president from all parts of Yugoslavia.
