As a traveler looking for attractions, have you ever thought of taking a Segway tour of a city? Have you thought about doing it in Belgrade, Serbia? Belgrade has a rich history dating back over 7,000 years and is home to many historical sites, such as the Kalemegdan Fortress, St. Sava Temple, and the Museum of Yugoslav History. The Danube River runs through Belgrade and provides a picturesque backdrop for many of the city's landmarks, as well as opportunities for boat rides and river cruises. There are many attractions in Belgrade and using a Segway is an easy way to see them all without using a car or walking all over the town. On a Segway tour, you will see plenty of attractions with your tour guide and get a chance to learn about the history and you’ll have plenty of photos to prove it. Have you made Serbia a destination on your vacations list yet?
There's no better way to enjoy Serbia's beauty and history than by Segway. Here, I review a Segway tour we booked on Viator.
We stayed a week in Belgrade, Serbia, staying at the Hyatt Regency Belgrade. We took a few tours we booked on Viator. A favorite was the great Belgrade Segway Tour we enjoyed. Our guide took us all over the city, including the Belgrade Fortress. It sits atop a ridge above the confluence of the Sava and the Danube rivers. The Belgrade Fortress was built between the second and the 18th century. During its history, the fortress has been destroyed and rebuilt many times. Belgrade has seen many conquerors including the Romans, Turks, Serbs and Austro-Hungarians.
Our guide took us all over the fortress and even let us get off the Segways to get some nice photos. The tour includes a large military museum, a museum of natural history, a zoo and the Nebojsa Tower.
The Nebojsa Tower survives as the only medieval tower left of the Belgrade Fortress. It was built in the 15th century and was the major defensive tower of the fortress for centuries.
The fortress area is so large, it supports the city zoo that keeps more than 200 animal species and more than 2,000 animals. The zoo was established in 1936. The tour went to the zoo, but we did not enter because we had so many other things to see.
Kalmegdan Park lies adjacent to the fortress and is quite large in its own right. Luckily, we were on Segways and breezed right along.
We also saw the Roman well, which has an interesting history. Austrians began building the well after they took Belgrade from the Turks sometime between 1717 and 1731. While digging the Austrians found there was already a deeper well beneath the rocks they were excavating. They thought that the Romans must have dug it centuries before.
After spending a nice time at the fortress and surrounding areas, we rode through the city. Our guide took us to a white marble fountain with a rooster on top.
We also toured the old town of Belgrade. It is called Stari Grad and isn’t as old as some of the other old town locations in Europe. But it’s a large area in the center of Belgrade. It encompasses three municipalities including Savski, Venac and Vracar.
Our guide took very good care of us on our tour. When we crossed streets, he always made sure that it was safe for crossing. I don’t know how many miles we covered on the tour, but it was a lot. On a Segway, it was very easy. We saw so much in a short time. If you are in Belgrade, this is a very nice tour to enjoy.
