While walking and soaking the atmosphere of Knez Mihalova your guide will tell you interesting stories and bring back some old times of this cultural district.
The next stop is a gorgeous Saint Sava Church which dominates over Vracar Plateau and keeps the memory of the most important Serbian saint from the XII century. This stunning white marble church is one of the biggest Orthodox churches in the world. Besides its impressive size, this is also one of the most beautiful churches in Serbia. Its beauty is hidden inside with its interior decoration. Millions of mosaic cubic pieces in thousands of shades make a unique masterpiece of art.
From the urban city center, you will move on to Avala Mountain which is the most popular nature sight in Belgrade. Don’t expect some intensive hiking, Avala is only 511 m high. It is everyone’s favorite picnic area with a few important landmarks which you are going to explore. First, you will check a monument of the Unknown Hero which was built in the 1930s and has a very intriguing background story.
