We will drive through rolling hills and peaceful countryside to Central Serbia – Sumadia. We will make a first stop at the Mountain of Avala where we will visit the Monument to Unknown Soldier, the work of famous Yugoslav sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.

In Topola we will visit the residence and burial church of the founder of the Karageorgevic dynasty, Karageorge, the leader of the First Serbian Uprising in the 19th century. The Church of St George at Oplenac Hill was decorated with wall mosaics made of 40 million glass cubes, in 15 thousand shades. The entire area of the mosaic is 3,500 square metres (38,000 sq ft) and there are 725 painted compositions with 1500 figures. The church is a sort of a museum of reproductions of the best frescoes from 60 Serbian medieval churches and monasteries. A chandelier made of weapons used by Serbian Soldiers in World War I is hanging in the centre of the church and in the richly decorated crypt we will see the tombs of the members of the Royal dynasty Karageorgevic. We will also visit the Home of King Peter I, who became a King after 45 years of exile and whose reign started a new phase in modern Serbia.

In the Royal Wine Cellar we will see interesting wine barrels made of carved wood, some of them lavish gifts to King Peter I and his son King Alexander Karageorgevic.

After a wine tasting, we will continue to Arandjelovac to the restaurant dedicated to the memory of King Alexander I and decorated with memorabilia related to him and his wife  Queen Maria.

On our way back to Belgrade we will visit Smederevo Fortified Town, the largest medieval lowland type fortress in Europe built in 15th century.
