About the tour

Join Serge on this 60 minutes walking tour that researches the history and monuments of the ancient Fortress of Belgrade. It is a unique journey from the ancient past to a modern time. Little is known that the hill with a fortress on top and a stunning view at the confluence of the Sava and the Danube rivers has been constantly inhabited during the last three thousand years. Since the Celts and Romans, It's been seen as the most important strategic spot in the northern Balkans. Situated at the very border between Eastern, Western and Islamic civilizations, the fate of the city was often shaped by their titanic clashes over a very long time. Perhaps too often if you ask Belgraders. As a descendant of families living in Belgrade since the 19th century, I developed a deep understanding of this important geopolitical crossroads. My mission, and passion, is to unlock its complexity and uniqueness.

Meet your local guide


Serge was born into an old Belgrade family whose members have left their mark on city life over the past 200 years. Working as a Tour Manager, he visited more than 50 countries around the world, getting to know different peoples, customs, cultures, and religions. He is a citizen of the world, a traveler, a humanist, a writer, a lecturer, and a guide. Serge is deeply committed to understanding the Balkan riddles that have so often chosen his hometown as the stage for their turbulent manifestations over the centuries. Indeed, Belgrade is an ancient and unique place situated at the crossroads of Eastern and Western civilizations. If we accept the saying that ""history is the teacher of life"", then this city certainly represents one of her most interesting classrooms. Serbia is a country yet to be discovered. Some travelers already know that her capital is always fresh and surprising, dynamic, vibrant, unusual, and has such a big heart. Be one of them! Join Serge's engaging presentations in which he shares knowledge and love for Belgrade and Serbia with you!
