TOPOLA - TOUR TO ROYAL TOWN

Dynasty’s stronghold and royal wine.


Serbian modern history starts with 19th Century uprisings and national revolution which lead to liberation from Ottoman rule and state building process. Two local dynasties emerged and ruled Serbia (and Yugoslavia) from 1804 till 1945. In Topola, beautiful area in the heart of Serbia and just some 80 minute drive from Belgrade, you can visit the complex memorizing Serbian Uprisings and St George’s church, a royal mausoleum of Karadjordjevic dynasty. This area is also famous for its vineyards and cellars, and some of the Serbia’s best are located just couple of minutes from the historical complex in Topola.
