I took Trolley bus #78 from bus station towards Baštovansk
Sep 2020
I took Trolley bus #78 from bus station towards Baštovanska then bus #405 towards Avala. The overall route takes 50 minutes. Here, I started to hike Avala mountain for about 30 minutes for 1700 meter. The hiking route is well prepared and the nature of the road is totally amazing.

Once you arrive, you have to but a ticket 300 RSD for the Avala Television tower access. It’s 200m. The Tower Cafe is 119m and the viewing terace is 122m and both have nice view to Belgrade.

Once again, I get down from the tower and got the way back with more time in nature.

Note, the Avala tower was very clear from plane at nightI couldnt capture it.

Very nice mountain with a TV-Tower
Nov 2019 • Friends
Mountain Avala is located near from Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. Here is about 25km far from the xity, so you can arrive by car. In the mountain there are some interesting places like the Communications-Tower (Avala Tower), which has a very beautiful lookout on top. From here you can see very nice views of the mountain, surroundings and Belgrade. Also, here there is a bar, so you can drink a glass of wine while you see the views.
In the surroundings there is the monument to unknown soldiers, which is built in neoclassic-style. Also you can see other monuments, while you arrive to the tower. Very good. Ah! In the lower part of the tower there is the most interesting souvenirs shop, that we saw in all trip.

Great views of the city
Sep 2019
This is the tallest mountain near Belgrade and the Avala Tower is a big draw providing panoramic views of the city. We spent some time in this area visiting the Monument to the Unknown Hero and the Avala tower. We took a Viator tour and the tour guide explanations were very helpful.
There are a few restaurants nearby as well.

The park is beautiful and it was fun walking there. We went up to the monument to the unknown soldier and then went up the tower. The hills and forests were really nice

A nice walk
Jul 2019
I visited this mountain (actually just a bit more than a hill). You can have relaxing walk from base to the top following the existing paved paths. There are also a couple of bars where you can have a drink or eat something.

Communication tower overlooking Belgrade with an interesting story
Jul 2019 • Couples
This is a communication tower that was Belgrades pride for many years. In 1998 is was bombed by NATO and it was restored just a few years ago. The view is breathtaking and there is a small cafe on the hill where we stopped for a cold beer before we left.

interesting

It is outside Belgrade on Avala hill (officially it is a mountain just a hair in height over a hill), from between 15 and 20 km depending on where you are in Belgrade.
There is a famous TV tower with glasspanelled view platform some 100 metres high, visitor centre with souvenir shop and a cafe, children playground and parking - lot free of charge. There is also a small wooden church nearby, popular picknic area, an old hotel that craves for refurbishing, and also a famous Monument to the Unknown Soldier on the very top of Avala. All within ten-minute walk. You pay just for the ticket to the TV tower platform, everything else is free of charge.
The author of the MOnument is renowned Yugoslav sculptor Ivan Mestrovic who made it after middle East temples with female cariatides representing women from different regions of Yugoslavia between two WW. Some like it, some don't, but the place is wonderful overlooking a nice portion of scenery around.
To build the monument an old fortified town of Zrnovo was demolished.
The visit can be a nice half-day outing in combined nature and arhitecture feast.

A nice place to do picnic
Feb 2019 • Friends
A nice low mountain, with many souvenir stalls at the top, beautiful trees and gardens. The monument of the unknown soldier and the TV tower are to visit. Remember to carry your picnic food with you as you will really enjoy the meal on top.
