Belgrade Sightseeing and Serbian Monasteries

Maja Radovic, Belgrade sightseeing tour guide, recommends:

If you are making travel plans wanting to visit some European countries, then without any doubt you should consider visiting Serbia, an old country, located in south of Hungary, east of Croatia and Bosnia, west of Romania and Bulgaria, north of Macedonia and Greece or north-west of Montenegro.
You will discover a wonderful country with beautiful nature and friendly people, rich cultural and historical heritage, and an interesting tradition. Belgrade is a capital and largest city in the country with almost 2 millions habitants.

Belgrade sightseeing usually includes city center – Republic Square and pedestrian Kneza Mihaila Street, confluence of the rivers Sava and Danube, Kalemegdan Fortress, bohemian Skadarlija, etc.

You can also enjoy Belgrade specific 'street-on-river' with numerous "floating" restaurants, cafes and nightclubs, until the early morning hours.

For many of visitors one of the most interesting 'a-must-see' destination is the famous Skadarlija, bohemian street from the 19th century, still keeping alive the spirit of great poets, writers, painters, philosophers and journalists from that romantic age.

You can also see the biggest Orthodox Church in Europe, the St. Sava's Temple, in the heart of Belgrade, near by National Library of Serbia and Monument of Karadjordje, leader of the Serbian Insurrection against Ottoman Empire in the very beginning of the 19th century.

Once you are in Serbia, you should visit some of the medieval monasteries, with their precious fresco paintings, early Byzantine style, many of which are under UN cultural protection.

In Serbia you may enjoy visiting some of its numerous rivers, mountains, lakes, waterfalls, rare naturally decorated caves or some really fascinating 'Wonders of Natures'.

Serbia is also well known for its good and tasty food, mostly with meat, good wine and famous, authentic, very strong kind of plum-brandy called Slivovitz.
