Royal Tour will take you to the region of Šumadija, the heart of Serbia. In its midst lies Topola, a small town with regal history, inseparably connected with Serbian Karađorđević Royal dynasty and its fate.
The Royal Tour takes us to the city of Topola after a 1.5-hour scenic drive through rolling hills covered in forests. This is the place where the center of the Serbian Uprising was located.
Our first stop is the remnants of the fortified stronghold of Karadjordje, the founder of the royal dynasty. Here we’ll see the monument to Karadjordje and his quarters that had been turned into a small museum dedicated to these historic events. Also, there is a small church with a splendidly carved iconostasis.
The compound stands at the foot of the Oplenac Hill crowned with the Mausoleum Church of Karađorđević’s. The whole church is built in gleaming white marble, and the interior is completely covered in amazing mosaics. The low-ceiling church crypt, where all the members of this royal dynasty were buried, is even more adorable. Outside the church stands a museum filled with royal portraits and other belongings.
After this, it’s time for a visit to one of the celebrated wine cellars of the region where we’ll indulge ourselves in wine tasting.
You will visit a Memorial Collection of King Peter the First, including the Saint George’s Church and the Mausoleum od Karađorđević dynasty located on top of the Oplenac Hill. Also, you will visit the King Peter’s House – that is turned into a gallery with his private things as well as of King Alexandar’s. After this, you’ll visit the Town of Karađorđe. It keeps all personal goods and authentical weapons from the First Serbian Uprising. Visit Royal wine cellar with wine tasting.
