1st Day – Meeting, Iron Gate Gorge, Golubac Fortress, Lepenski Vir, Rtanj Mountain
You will meet #YourSerbiaHost at the airport/bus/train station or wherever we agree to meet. First stop is the famous Golubac Fortress. This medieval fortification was constructed at the point of the Danube where the river changes from its widest point on the entire stretch – 7km from side to side, to a narrow gorge entrance. You’ll walk the towers and ramparts of this intriguing edifice. Next stop is prehistorical settlement Lepenski Vir, dating from 8000 BC. It’s located in the heart of the Iron Gate Gorge. Here you’ll experience how life looked like on the bank of the Danube in prehistoric times. Lunch stop is on Captain Misa’s hill. It is a household where a local family runs a small ethnic complex where you’ll try local food and learn something about their life in this part of Serbia.
After lunch you’ll see the most attractive parts in the gorge, Mali and Veliki Kazan ravines. From viewpoints above Danube you’ll enjoy the most iconic views over the gorge, together with a sculpture of Dacian king Decebalus (Decibel) carved in a rock on the Romanian side.
First night is planned in Hotel Ramonda**** at the foot of Rtanj Mountain. Here you’ll have a chance to relax in the hotel’s pool after an exciting day or to enjoy a stroll around the area. The first day sounds exciting, isn’t it?
2nd Day – Felix Romuliana, Ravanica and Manasija Monasteries, Veliki buk Waterfall
The second day of the trip starts right after breakfast. First stop on the itinerary is Felix Romuliana. This UNESCO site is a Roman palace from the IV century, built by Roman Emperor Galerius. From here we continue to the Monastery Ravanica. This XIV century monastery has great importance for Serbia’s national pride and identity. Midday stop for break and lunch is planned at the attractive waterfall Veliki buk, surrounded by intact nature (if you feel warm you can take a dip into cold mountain spring water). In a cozy small restaurant directly by the creek we’ll have local specialties for lunch. After a deserved break we’ll drive to Manasija Monastery from the XV century. Here you’ll learn why Serbian medieval rulers carried the title of Despot and who was Despot Stefan Lazarević. From Manasija we continue to West Serbia and its Šumadija region.
Here, in the village Mala Vrbica you’ll have a chance to meet locals from the household House of Čolović. This rural guesthouse is a perfect representative of Serbian hospitality. Comfortable stay is combined with kind hosts and tasty local food.
3rd Day – Topola, Oplenac Mausoleum, Wineries, Belgrade
Third day will start with a rich and tasty homemade breakfast. After you say goodbye to our hosts, the trip continues through Šumadija to the nearby town of Topola. Renewal of the modern Serbian state started there in 1804. On the tip of Oplenac hill you’ll visit the Royal mausoleum, a church where 27 members of the royal family are buried. It is decorated with mosaics: 40 million pieces in 15.000 shades of colour. From this point onward you are only enjoying Šumadija wine. First, we’ll stop by the Royal wine cellar, established in the 1930s by a Serbian king. After this one we’ll visit the most prominent Serbian winery Aleksandrović. As a grand finale of the day we’ll have a local lunch with wine tasting at a young family owned winery, whose young winemakers will be your host during the meal.
After lunch we are leaving Šumadija and heading to Belgrade for the rest of the day. After check-in at the great Hotel City Savoy****, located in the city center close to all main attractions, you have free time for yourself.
4th Day – Belgrade fortress, Tito’s tomb, St. Sava church, Zemun, Gardoš hill
Last day of your Serbia tour package is reserved for Belgrade exploration. We’ll take you first to Belgrade fortress, the most iconic Belgrade landmark. Then from the fortress we move to another part of the city, posh Dedinje. You’ll visit the House of flowers, which is the eternal home of former Yugoslavian president Tito. #YourSerbiaHost will explain how Tito’s cult was nurtured during his life, but also long after he was gone. From the controversial Yugoslavian dictator’s tomb we’ll take you to a holy place, to St. Sava church. This the biggest Orthodox temple in the Balkans is dedicated to a true saint who was born in the XII and who brought autonomy to the Serbian Orthodox Church in the XIII century.
When we finish this part of exploration we’ll take you to a restaurant in the neighborhood, where local food is prepared in a modern manner. After lunch we’ll switch to the other side of the river, to Zemun. This old part of the city was actually a separate town till 1934. Strolling along the Danube promenade or walking to the Gardoš hill, with a drink in one of the local cafes will make you feel like a local.
This is where the four day Serbia tour package ends and where we say doviđenja (farewell) to each other. At the end of the tour you’ll be dropped off to the airport/train/bus station or wherever we agree.
