Ce vei face

Belgrade's history is long, intricate and, let's face it, often complicated, so you don’t want to listen to the usual touristy nonsense about it. This is your one visit to Belgrade so I want you to get things right. No sugar-coated platitudes but real history and real Belgrade –good and bad.

On this tour we will focus on history and the way it shaped Belgrade, its streets, buildings and people. We will meet in the very center of the city, on Trg Republike (Republic Square), and then progress through the core of the city seeing remains of previous centuries and epochs, from the Roman to the Ottoman. Next we will visit Kalemegdan Park and the very heart of Belgrade, its Fortress. The last leg of our tour takes us through the quiet historic neighborhood of Dorcol. If you have time and haven't run out of questions we can sit for a drink at the end of the tour and continue our chat.

In order not to waste time stopping, I will bring refreshments.
Other things to note
Though we will do our best to adjust to your pace, bare in mind that there might be other guests on tour. The pace is easy, but it is two hours of walking and standing (only occasionally sitting). There are a few ups and downs and two shorter stairways.

Born and raised in Belgrade, I'm a Master of Central European history, author of the best-selling travel guide about Serbia and, last but not least, a licensed tour guide for Serbia with eight years of experience. I got my MA in history from the University of Belgrade and then went on to get a BA (again in history) from the Central European University (Vienna). Since 2013 I’ve led numerous groups and individuals working with companies such as MIR, Ace Travel, Martin Randall... I have written a number of books. Firstly, guidebooks for Belgrade, Serbia, Montenegro and I’ve co-authored a guide for Slovenia. These books have been re-printed numerous times and have now sold over 35,000 copies. I have also co-authored a book about Serbia’s national drink, rakija. My newest book is on Serbian churches and monasteries.

Unde vei fi

We will walk along Belgrade's touristy and untouristy streets and you will see details that you would otherwise miss for sure. Details that tell stories, stories that explain the past, present and perhaps future as well. We will observe the Danube from ancient ramparts, see Roman walls, Ottoman mosque, several intriguing monuments and a one of a kind church.

Best city tour I have had. Vladimir is knowledgeable and knows his city well. He covered technical details of Belgrade with great storytelling. I highly recommend this tour if you are looking for something that is highly educated and meaningful.

Vladimir je kao prvo vrlo komunikativan i osoba je koja svakako poznaje povijest i ima štošta za ispričati. Zaista predivno iskustvo koje definitivno preporučam. :)

Vladimir is highly educated, well organized, extremely informative, and loves his city. You'll get not only the history of Belgrade (and Serbia) from Roman Empire to the present but also have an insightful look into how and why the city has become to be. This is not a typical touristy city tour, though. Get ready for some first-class education. Highly recommended to anyone interested in history, sociology, politics, arts, and economics. Five stars, all over.

Vladimir is a very knowledgable historian, but more than that is very skilled at explaining the complex history of the city and country in a way that makes it both interesting and easy to follow. He also puts the threads of the history into the wider historical context which helps with understanding the narrative. He knows about architecture as well as history which makes observing the buildings of Belgrade especially interesting. Highly recommended.
