We will start our private Belgrade tour with a visit to the oldest part of Belgrade where we will find Kalemegdan Park and Belgrade Fortress. During a pleasant walk through large grounds situated on the hill right above the confluence of the Sava and Danube Rivers, we will enjoy beautiful views of New Belgrade, with its brutalist architecture, the old town of Zemun and the War Island. You will hear stories from the past, stories of wars fought on this hill and why different empires struggled so much to control this town. Amongst other interesting sites, we will also visit the famous Rose Church of Our Lady. The chandeliers in the church were made of the ammunition used by Serbian Soldiers in World War I. We will continue to the Orthodox Cathedral and on to the Patriarch’s Court and next to them the « Restaurant? » and Princess Ljubica’s Palace, where you will hear the story of this brave and proud woman who had the courage to oppose to her husband, Prince Milos, the absolute ruler of Serbia in the 19th century. Then we will head off to the busy Republic Square where we will see the National Theater and the National Museum. We will stroll through Terazije Street lined with the old palaces and the famous Moscow Hotel. Afterwards, we will head off for a drive along King Alexander Street and see the Serbian Parliament, Town Hall, university buildings and the shopping strip. We will visit the Church of Saint Marco and the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity, both standing above an underground man-made cave bigger than the two churches. At the end of our Belgrade tour will visit the Temple of Saint Sava, one of the largest Orthodox temples in the world and the pride and joy of Serbian people.
