It is built on the mountain top (511 m), and offers excellent views of the rolling hills of Sumadija. Photo stop by one of the landmarks of Belgrade - Avala TV tower, with 204 meters it is the tallest structure of all the Balkans.
Continue to Topola. Upon arrival visit to the Church of Our Lady from 1813, Karađorđe's endowment, and to his Residence, this is today a museum of the First Serbian Uprising and its leader who established the Royal House of Karadjordjevic.
Drive to the top of Oplenac hill (337m) where one very special and unique church is situated. Built after WWI by king Peter I Karadjordjevic, church of St. George was envisioned to be the Royal Family mausoleum for both his ancestors and descendants. Out of the 22 tombs of the Karadjordjevic Dynasty, seven of them belong to rulers: Supreme Leader Karadjordje (Karageorge), Prince Alexander, King Peter I, King Aleksandar I, Queen Mother Maria, Queen Alexandra and King Peter II.
Church design follows best tradition of famous Serbian medieval architecture. Marble for its columns came from Carrara in Italy. But the absolute highlight are the must-see mosaics: 725 painted compositions (513 in the temple and 212 in the crypt), on which there are 1500 figures. The entire area of the mosaic is 3,500 square meters, (38,000 sq ft); with 40 million various colored pieces of Murano glass which have 15 thousand of different varieties of color, making the artistic impression most vivid and detailed.
