Your Own Belgrade: Tales of Old Zemun

For all those who like leisurely walks, amazing stories, and unexpected discoveries
This tour of Zemun is special. How else could one describe a walk through the charming old town, which is not only hidden, like a nesting doll, in another city but which also hides another city within itself? And we will certainly find that third city together. We will take a stroll along the paved streets between vine-covered houses with tiled roofs, feed the swans on the Danube, peek into courtyards and look for treasures, legends, secrets, and funny stories scattered throughout the city of Zemun. And we can encounter the most unexpected sorts of things.

But don't let this dreamy picture deceive you. Zemun, as every proper fairy-tale city should, has a secret or dark side, which has not only changed the fate of the country more than once but also the fate of Europe. But that doesn't scare us, does it?

This city tour is beautiful, simple, and full of amazing stories. Without them, it is impossible to understand neither Belgrade nor the rest of Serbia. We would recommend you take it after the sightseeing tour of Belgrade.

Read more about the tour
We will meet you in Zemun and together walk through the most picturesque streets, see the magnificent view from the Gardoš Tower, visit several fascinating cathedrals of different confessions and the best farmer's market in Belgrade. We will find the oldest house in the city and remnants of fortifications and learn more about the stories of the residents of luxurious Austro-Hungarian mansions and market vendors. We will come across significant monuments and signposts, Swallow's nests at an arm's length, and real predators. And of course, we will taste all the delicious foods. Let's not forget the rakija!

How do you stay fed and drunk during a war? What are the dangers of building toilets? Why should you talk topsy-turvy? And how did Europe escape the plague? We'll certainly tell you.

We will tell you many amazing stories about Zemun and its residents. This tour is private, so nothing would stop us from talking more about how life was arranged in ancient Roman castra, the times of the Crusades, the impacts of the Russian Revolution, the birth of Zionism or Freemasonry, modern social politics, or any other topic that you find interesting. All this has a direct connection to this little fairy-tale town tucked away inside Belgrade.
Perhaps, you still have some questions. This is what we get asked about most of the time.
