The airport is approx. 20 min drive to your first stop Zemun, an old part of the city that developed under the influence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. If you arrive in the early morning hours, it is a perfect time to start with a visit to the green market, a place full of organic vegetables, fruits, domestic cheese and “kajmak”. The ideal choice for breakfast! After enjoying the local products, you will walk through the narrow cobblestone streets lined with beautiful houses and reach the famous Millennium Tower in Zemun, on Gardos. From here you will enjoy the beautiful view of “The Blue Danube”.
On your way to the historic city center, you will pass through New Belgrade, the modern part of the city, and today’s commercial and residential center.

Along the way to the Belgrade fortress is “Kafana” the oldest restaurant in the city, where you can try Serbian cup of Serbian domestic coffee. After a break, you will continue to the fortress, the place from which Belgrade originated. From here spreads a breathtaking view on the confluence of two Rivers, the Sava and Danube.
After you’ve had a chance to walk around the fortress, relax and enjoy the panoramic sightseeing you will pass through the main streets of the city. You will be shown where the National Parliament, City Hall, and many buildings that were bombed at the end of the 20th century are located.
