DISCOVER BELGRADE WITH US
Belgrade, known to locals as 'New York on a budget', has been for centuries the crossroads between the East and the West, creating a unique fusion of traditions, styles and influences.
Belgrade is a city of extraordinary contrasts, a capital where culture and architecture coexist, a past of ruin and rebirth. The Metropol Palace overlooks Belgrade's soul, reflecting a cosmopolitan panorama in front of the grand Tašmajdan Park, right in the heart of Belgrade.
The main city attractions are only a few steps away from The Metropol Palace: the National Parliament, the St. Marko Church, the shopping and pedestrian district (Knez Mihailova Street), the old Kalemegdan Fortress and Park, and Skadarlija - Belgrade’s old-style bohemian area - and Tasmajdan Park.
Despite the appearances of green havens in Belgrade's city center, the grand Tasmajdan Park encloses a tumultuous history and past, hiding an entire city under its surface. According to historians, beneath the surface of the park are located caves dating back to eight million years ago, which were later connected through tunnels and corridors.
Within walking distance from the hotel is Vračar plateau where the magnificent Temple of Saint Sava is located - the largest Ortodox church in the Balkans - and next to the temple you will discover the National Library of Serbia as well as the park named after Karađorđe, leader of the First Serbian Uprising and founder of the Karađorđević dynasty.
Take your time and continue your indigenous discovery with the Belgrade Fortress, offering exciting views of Sava and Danube's confluence, New Belgrade and Zemun. The Kalemegdan Park contains the “Cvijeta Zuzorić” Pavilion, the Grand Stairway, the Zoo, children’s park and monuments, sculptures, sports courts, café and restaurants.
The greatest bohemian spirit of Belgrade can be felt walking through Skadarska Street, in the old city center. The narrow steep cobblestone streets and the old buildings enchant in their picturesque appearance and contrasts. Visitors can enjoy the sounds of traditional music and visit galleries, bakeries, pastry shops and cafés, as well as tasting the best local cuisine.
