Tour flow

#YourSerbiaHost will meet you at centrally located pickup point at 10am (exact location is provided in booking confirmation). After an hour long drive we reach Topola. Our first stop in Oplenac exploration is Karađorđe’s Town, a spot which once was a fortified town built by Karađorđe. Later the fortified walls were demolished, so nowadays you can see only residence with tower and Church of Holly Mother.

From Karađorđe’s Town we move up to the top of Oplenac where we continue our exploration with gorgeous mausoleum of family Karađorđević. In the church 27 members of royal family were buried. Karađorđe and King Petar I lie in central part of the church, and rest of the family members are in the crypt. Significant characteristic of the church is its mosaic interior decoration with 40 million pieces in 15,000 shades of color.

On the hills of Oplenac, King Peter I planted vineyards on 38 hectares. His winery was well known among major European royal courts for the superb wine quality. The oldest Serbian wine collection can be found in authentic package from 1931 in this particular wine cellar.

After descent from Topola and Oplenac our trip continues four kilometers further to nearby village Vinča and Winery Aleksandrović. Wine lovers will definitely appreciate this stop.

When we finish with history and wine we move on to Aranđelovac town, to a ethnic restaurant with a great view. Authentic local cuisine expects you in cozy Šumadija ambient.

After lunch tour ends and you’ll be dropped off at Belgrade city center.

We did a day trip to Topola during our time in Serbia. We booked through Viator which is how we got connected with Serbia Private Tours. We were very fortunate that we were the only tour people on the tour. Our guide, Vladi, was awesome. Very great knowledge, Excellent English. Insightful, informative and fun to be with. He would equally good with a large group or a small private tour like what we had. We stopped at a few wineries, a monastery, toured the town, saw a few churches and had an amazing lunch. I am sure you can book direct with them. When in Serbia and the Belgrade area, I would recommend them.
