Temple of Saint Sava
The largest Orthodox church in the Balkans impresses visitors with its size and history, as well as its beauty. It is difficult to put this splendor in the frame of 1080 × 1080 on Instagram, which is why posing and taking photos in front of the temple is one of the biggest challenges for all tourists. The whiteness of the temple walls is a great contrast to the blue sky and we recommend that you walk there on a sunny day. Once you’re there, you can’t help but go inside and take a few photos of the dome from the inside.
The Republic Square
Recently reconstructed, the square has completely changed its appearance and has now taken the form of a wide and open space as in all major world capitals. It is decorated and framed by recognizable symbols of the city – the monument to Prince Michael, the National Theater and the National Museum. If you photograph it from Kolarčeva Street, you will get the best shot, in which all three mentioned symbols fit.

Finally we take you to a quieter place where there is not much crowd and where you can walk for hours (regardless of the season) and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful nature. Belgrade is lucky that one such forest is part of its wider city center, only a few kilometers from the center. Serbian kings also walked in this oasis many years ago, enjoying the peace and beauty of Kosutnjak. Have a picnic and surprise your boyfriend or girlfriend, who we are sure will be delighted with the ambience and will want to immortalize that moment forever in a few photos. For us, Kosutnjak is the most beautiful in autumn, when warm colors are at every step, the leaves rustle under your feet and the air becomes more pleasant and colder.
