Tour description

Your tour begins at Student’s square (Studentski Trg) You will pass by the Jewish community center and by the 16th century Bayrakli Mosque (Bajrakli džamija), the only surviving Belgrade mosque and you’ll hear some interesting stories about how Belgrade looked and lived under the Ottomans.

Continue your walk through Kalemegdan, the oldest and largest park in the city center. Starting from Leopold’s Gate, you will pass by the remains of the Roman castrum – Singidunum and medieval walls built upon it – Zindan Gate, Despot’s Gate, Jakšića tower, all dating back to 15 century. You will visit two Orthodox churches placed in this part of the fortress: Chapel of St Petka and Ružica Church (Virgin Mary Church)

Entering the Upper town (Gornji grad), you will see the magnificent sight of the confluence of two rivers: the Sava and the Danube. You will pass by Mehmed-pasha Sokolović fountain, Defterdar’s gate and observe the Lower Town (Donji grad) from above: the Main gunpowder storage, Karl VI’s gate, and Nebojsha tower.

You will continue your walk through the Upper town: the Victor monument by world-renowned sculptor Ivan Meshtrovic, one of Belgrade landmarks, Roman well, the King’s gate and Sava promenade, the Damat Ali Pasha Tomb, Clock Gate (Sahatkapija) Clock Tower (Sahatkula). Passing by Military Museum and through Istanbul’s gate (Stambol gate), you will leave the fortress behind us entering the Kalemegdan park once again. There is a Monument of Gratitude to France by Ivan Mestrovic in the park and a large number of busts, representing the famous Serbian man of letters.

After Kalemegdan park you will head towards Varoskapija, part of the town built on the banks of the Sava river. There you find a Serbian Orthodox Patriarchy and Belgrade Cathedral, the oldest Belgrade Tavern ‘?’, and Residence of Princess Ljubica, an elegant Balkan style edifice. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of a quiet and charming quarter of Kosančićev Venac. The oldest part of the city outside the fortress, today serves as home to many artists – painters, sculptors, photographers, art galleries and art schools, so no wonder it is referred to as Belgrade Montmartre.

You’ll visit the place where the National Library of Serbia used to stand before it was destroyed in Hitler’s bombing of Belgrade in 1941. You climb back to the city center by King Peter’s street and pass by King Peter the 1 Elementary school, Neo-renaissance palace of National Bank of Serbia and Art Nouveau Department store.

Through the pedestrian street Knez Mihajlova, you will reach the Republic square passing by many interesting examples of civil architecture from the 19th and 20th century, such as Serbian Academy of Science and Arts.
