Hear conspiracy theories and urban legends from the 2nd half of the 20th century as you learn about the fall and rise of communism in Yugoslavia. See socialistic grey edifices belonging to the constructivism era mixed with numerous monuments from the era of the Yugoslavian Kingdom. Arrive at Terazije Square and hear about the glamorous holidays and festivities which were often celebrated here. See Hotel Moskva, and learn about the world-known celebrities and atypical guests who once stayed in its rooms.

Note its Trade Union Hall and learn about the cult of work which was emphasized during the communist era. At Pioneer's Park, learn how Tito's regime was the most liberal of all countries within the communist system.

We had an excellent experience with Zlatan, he explained the country’s history so well and in a way that made it easy to follow. He answered our questions easily , as he obviously has a great depth of knowledge and at the end of the tour, very kindly took us to our bus stop. Which was extremely helpful. Thank you

Fascinating tour

We were lucky to have Dragana as our guide for this tour. She has a master's degree in history and is excellent at explaining Belgrade's complicated past. There is a lot of standing so be prepared to be on your feet. Dragana provided so much intriguing information that our teenagers went home and did additional research. This tour is an excellent value.
