Private Belgrade excursion to Topola and Oplenac
Pick up from your Belgrade hotel and drive to Oplenac near Topola, around 50 miles south of Belgrade, in a rich agricultural area covered by poplar, maple and oak trees. Here, visit the Royal Mausoleum of the Serbian dynasty, founded by a brave soldier called Karadjordje who led the Serbian uprising against Turkish rule in 1804, and whose great-great-great grandson, Crown Prince Alexander II, descended also from Queen Victoria, is considered to be the rightful King of Yugoslavia. The 20-odd royal tombs are inside the magnificent church of St George, white marble on the outside, and lined inside with the most beautiful mosaics – 40 million pieces of glass covering 38,000 square feet. Also visit the town of Topola where Karadjordje came from, and where you can still see some of the buildings he founded. Return to your Belgrade hotel.
