Avala – Top of the Belgrade | Sightseeing tours for Serbia

With its 511m of altitude, Avala ranks as a mountain, and one of the favourite resorts in the region of Belgrade. Since the place has been settled ages ago, we can still find the remains of the middle-aged village Žrnov, which was one of the first lines of protecting Belgrade. Today, top of the Belgrade is considered to be a protected natural good adorned with the Avala Tower, and the Monument of the Unknown Hero. The position of mountain, and its content are an ideal place for the start of our trip.

Tour program:

The departure to the trip is in the early morning hours, around 10AM (we are picking you up at the agreed time in front of your accommodation), then we have approximately a 30 minute drive to the Avala. By arriving to Avala, there is a free time to visit the Monument of the Unknown Hero, the masterpiece of Ivan Meštrović, and enjoy the view of Šumadija.

After enjoying the nature, and the monument, which represents the dying of the Serbian heroes during The First World War, we proceed to the Avala Tower. The tower that has became through the XX century the symbol of Belgrade, has been bombed during the NATO bombing in 1999. After the reconstruction of the tower, in 2010, it shines again, this time with a vantage point and a coffee bar. We continue our visit to the tower, free time for a drink at the bar, and the vantage point.

It is an ideal opportunity for you to meet Belgrade from a different perspective. After the trip, we continue our ride to Belgrade, where we will have panoramic city sightseeing tour, riding on the one of the biggest boulevard and we will continue to Dedinje. This is the part of the city which has always been the most exclusive one, with luxurious villas, and our first stop will be Beli dvor, residential palace of the royal dinasty Karadjordjević where we continue our ride passing by the stadions Partizan (Stadion JNA) and Red Star (Marakana) to the St. Sava’s Temple.

Stopping by the second biggest temple in the world, the spot where the temple has been built has a long tradition, we can actually say it is one of the most sacred places in Belgrade. Next to the temple are National library and the monument to Voždu Karadjordju. Free time for a walk and a visit to the temple. After the end of the visit, we return to the bus, and continue our ride to the city centre.

We are heading towards the Slavija Square, which is one of the largest and most busy circular flows in Belgrade, and the street of Kralja Milana, passing by the building of the Presidency and the City Assembly. After passing that, we reach the hotel towards the Republic Square, Studentski park, and Kalemegdan, we pass under the Kalemgdan Fortress and we go to the Serbian Parliament and to the assembly of the city where we finish our journey.
