Day 3Vrnjacka Banja – Kraljevo – Zica Monastery – Studenica Monastery


Our first stop today is at central Serbia’s city of Kraljevo. Built at the confluence of Ibar and Zapadna Morava rivers it is considered to be a masterpiece of Serbian urbanism, although prince Milos Obrenovic drew the first city plan by finger in a sand filled pan. A visit to the church of the Ascension of the Most Holy Mother of God is a must as it presents the most sacred preserved structure in the city. After some free time spent in the city we will continue our tour and visit Zica Monastery. It is famous for being the centre of the first Serbian archiepiscopacy with St Sava as the Patriarch, as well as the place where seven Serbian kings were crowned. Tonight, as the highlight of our trip, we shall be staying overnight in the dormitories of the Studenica Monastery which is listed by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage site. Your dinner will be served in the Monastery’s dining room.

Day 5Depart Belgrade


After breakfast we transfer you to Belgrade airport for your flight back home. Those who have a later flight may enjoy the included city sightseeing tour before departure to the airport.

Day 2Belgrade – Krusevac – Ljubostinja Monastery – Vrnjacka Banja


After breakfast we travel through scenic Serbian countryside to the town of Krusevac. Here we visit the Lazarica Church named after its founder, Prince Lazar. Construction of this church signalled the beginning of the Moravian School of masonry and it is considered to be a masterpiece of Serbian ecclesiastical architecture. Another significant building to be visited is the National Museum and monument dedicated to the heroes of Kosovo battle against the Turks. From here it is a short drive to Ljubostinja Monastery, founded by Princess Milica the wife of Prince Lazar construction of which began in 1388, a year before the Battle of Kosovo. With its splendid architecture it marks the peak of Serbian artistic development in the period immediately preceding the collapse of the Serbian independent state. Later we arrive in Vrnjacka Banja, the largest and most famous spa resort in the country.

Day 4Studenica Monastery – Ovcar Kablar Gorge – Belgrade


After an early breakfast and attending a morning service at the Monastery, we depart this remarkable site. Stunning scenery awaits us later as we drive through Ovcar Kablar gorge, known as the Serbian Holy Mountain of Athos thanks to numerous monasteries situated in this area. We will visit one of these, Blagovestenje Monastery, and later we’ll have our lunch served at the nearby local Restaurant. Drive back to Belgrade. Tonight we celebrate a successful trip at our Farewell Dinner with excellent food and music at “Skadarlija”, the Bohemian quarter of the city.
