Full description
Start with pickup from your hotel and meet your licensed guide who share interesting stories and facts about the city of Belgrade throughout the tour. Start by visiting New Belgrade, a part of the city built in the communist era. Pass by the Palace of Serbia, its facade reflecting the popularity of grandiose architecture in the latter half of the 20th century. See an example of brutalist architecture, Genex Tower, which stands tall among the "chess-like" grid of New Belgrade's tower blocks.

Proceed towards the Belgrade Arena and Congress Hall Sava Center. Pass over the "Gazelle" bridge to reach the more vibrant and colourful parts of Belgrade. Explore the upmarket district of Dedinje with edifices of exceptionally rich architectural value. Take a short break in front the memorial complex devoted to the history of Yugoslavia, with a special emphasis on the life of Josip Broz Tito, a fierce leader who pioneered solidarity, unity, and peace between all citizens in the former Yugoslavian state.

For the next portion of the tour, hop in a car and depart from Dedinje. During the ride, see Rajko Mitić Stadium which is home to FC Red Star, a former Champions League winner. See Partizan Stadium, the home of their fierce rivals, FC Partizan. After a short drive, stop at the top of Vracar Hill with Saint Sava Temple at its summit. Admire this symbol of Belgrade, with its white and gold exterior beautifully reflecting the sun rays. The plateau is also the home of the Serbian National Library, and is guarded by the monument dedicated to Karađorđe, the leader of the First Serbian Uprising against the Ottoman Empire. Reach Slavija Square where you will see the nearby remains of the Serbian General Staff building, destroyed during the war in 1999. Enjoy a drive through beautiful neighbourhoods with a diverse range of architectural styles, reflecting the 23 century-long history of Belgrade.

Approaching the center of Belgrade, pass through an administrative triangle formed by the imposing seat of the Serbian National Parliament, as well as the Old and New Palaces, the residencies of the City Parliament and the President. Pass by Terazije Square with its remarkable Moskva Hotel and Republic Square, which is considered to be the central point of Belgrade. Walk from Student's square and down Uzun Mirko Street until you reach the remarkable fortress consisting of different layers of construction from various eras. Take a relaxing walk from Kalemegdan Park to the Victory Monument, and end the tour with an unforgettable view over the city where the Sava and Danube rivers converge.
