  • Belgrade Highlights Tour

Belgrade

Although it may be hard to believe, people compare Belgrade to London – the only other European capital where one can order a full course dinner at 4:00 am and get it too!!! This only comes to prove that Belgrade is a vibrant city, surprising in its diversity and rich in its history. It is therefore a true challenge to offer a comprehensive picture of the Serbian capital city in just a few hours, but there are some sights of the city that have become its landmarks and that no visitor can leave the city without having seen them.
The “Highlights of Belgrade” tour strives to show you exactly this: the best that the capital has to offer. Following a pick up at your hotel we combine a panoramic drive through the newer quarters of the city with a walk through Kalemegdan – the ancient fortress of Belgrade that guards the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. We shall see the impressive New Royal Palace and Old Royal Palace (outside views only) – now hosting the City Hall and the office of the Serbian Prime Minister. We’ll also visit the fancy Dedinje neighborhood with its villas and embassies, where also the memorial for Marshall Tito, “The House of Flowers” is to be found. The long Kneza Milosa Avenue, where embassies, public buildings and bombed ruins of the recent conflict coexist, is the back-bone road of the city and a must-see, too. The giant and still unfinished St Sava Orthodox cathedral is the largest of its kind on the Balkans and rapidly turning into the landmark of the capital. But in order to see how a Serbian Orthodox church looks like from the inside we should rather stop at the Patriarchy church, located just above the tourist port. And of course, you would not get to take the pulse of the city unless you took a moment to enjoy a rich, dark “Turkish” coffee in one of the many cafes that line up Kneza Mihaila Street, the pedestrian shopping avenue of Belgrade. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel or upon request, at any location in the town if you prefer to continue exploring/shopping on your own.

  • Jewish Heritage Tour of Belgrade
sinagoge

Shortly before WWII, more than 12,000 Jews lived in Belgrade alone. Many more communities, with their own synagogues and schools, existed in other towns, most in today’s Vojvodina region. The majority of them were Sephardim, whose ancestors had come from Spain in the 16th century. Their peaceful existence was brutally interrupted in 1941, when the then Kingdom of Yugoslavia was occupied by the Nazis. Serbia has the sad fame of having been proclaimed by the Germans as the first “Judenrein” territory – almost all the Jewish population of the country perished during WWII. The ones that remained left for the US or for Israel. Many of their synagogues were destroyed, neglected or transformed into lay buildings…Just a few places in Belgrade, Nis and Vojvodina region remain, under the care of the small Jewish community still existing in Serbia.

The Jewish Heritage Tour of Belgrade allows the traveler to visit Belgrade Synagogue, the Jewish Museum, the Jewish cemetery, Belgrade fortress and the Dorcol neighborhood (the former Jewish quarter) as well as take a panoramic drive that will highlight the best of Belgrade.

Tour duration: 5 hours
Difficulty: easy
The tour runs on TUE, WED, THU, in the morning
