Tour description:

This tour will take you to the region of Šumadija, the very core of Serbia. In its midst lies Topola, a small town with regal history, inseparably connected with Serbian Karadjordjević royal dynasty and its fate.

After a pleasant 1.5 hour drive through the quintessentially Serbian scenery of rolling hills covered in orchards, fields and patches of forest we arrive to Topola. Our first stop are the remnants of the fortified stronghold of Karadjordje, the founder of the dynasty and the leader of the Serbian insurrection against the Ottomans in 1804-13. Here we will see the monument to Karadjordje, his quarters that now contain a museum dealing with these historic events and a church with a splendidly carved iconostasis.

The compound stands at the foot of the Oplenac Hill crowned with the mausoleum church of Karadjordjevićs all in gleaming white marble whose interior is completely covered in superb mosaics, depicting hundreds of ecclesiastical themes as well as Serbian medieval rulers. The low-ceiling church crypt, where all the members of this royal dynasty were buried, is even more adorable. Outside the church stands a tiny museum filled with royal portraits and belongings.

After this it’s time for a visit to one of the celebrated wine cellars of the region where we will indulge ourselves in wine tasting.

Organised lunch in restaurant with a national cuisine restaurant in Topola.
