TITO’S BLUE TRAIN
Tito’s Blue Train is closed on the weekends. If you book a tour during the weekend we’ll visit the train but you won’t be able to see the interior of the train.
From Queen Elizabeth II to Playboy magazine, no one could resist Tito’s famous Blue Train.Tito loved train travel and had his own private train built in 1959 which he used extensively until his death in 1980. Since 1980, this beautiful train has languished in its shed just south of Topcider station outside Belgrade, kept in immaculate original condition by its dedicated railway staff, available for hire but little used.
JAJINCI MEMORIAL PARK
Memorial park “Jajinci” is located on the 11th kilometer on the way to Аvala Mountain. It was built on the location of the military shooting range used by the Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. During the Second World War, it became the source of terrible suffering of the innocent civilians on the territory of occupied Serbia. Today it’s a place of quiet and an oasis just outside the city.
MONUMENT TO THE SOVIET WAR VETERANS
This monument on Mount Avala, south of Belgrade, commemorates the tragic 1964 crash of a plane full of Soviet WWII heroes into the side of the mountain. Through the 1960s until the early 1990s, the Soviet War Veterans Monument was an extremely popular and active tourist area, along with the rest of the attractions on Mt. Avala.
Today, the monuments and attractions around Mt. Avala bring in thousands of visitors each year to see them, as it is considered by some to be one of the most sacred and patriotic locations in all of modern Serbia.
MONUMENT TO THE UNKNOWN HERO
The most magnificent monument that will catch your attention is the Monument to the Unknown Hero, dedicated to the unknown Serbian soldier from World War I. It was sculptured by Ivan Mestrović in the form of a pyramid with 8 caryatids representing all the people of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and it was completed in 1938.
They call it a “City Guardian”. Avala tower was destroyed in the bombing of 1999, and a new Avala Tower was reconstructed and officially opened in April 2010. It is a replica of the old tower and is 204.68 m high. The Tower is the pride of all Belgraders, but also of the public enterprise “Broadcasting Equipment and Communications” that has been managing and operating since November 2010. It is in the top 5 tourist destinations in Belgrade.
