Avala Mountain

Avala Mountain

Located 16km south from Belgrade, mountain Avala (511m) or "Belgrade Mountain" represents favorite relaxing spot and picnic destination for Belgradians. The name Avala origins from Arabic word "havala" which means "observation point."

The main symbol of the mountain is Avala Tower (204.5m), the tallest tower within Balkans that serves as telecommunication and observation tower. The first tower was destroyed by NATO during bombing in 1999. It was rebuilt and reopened in April 2010. Observation platform is at 122m. In order to reach it you have to buy ticket (300 RSD) and enter elevator which will take you to the glass gallery from where you may enjoy a view of Belgrade and Central Serbia called Sumadija. The tower is considered to be among top 5 attractions in Belgrade.

At the very top of the mountain, visitors are welcomed by the Monument to the Unknown Hero, dedicated to the unknown Serbian soldier from World War I. This magnificent monument was made by Ivan Mestrovic, one of the greatest Yugoslavian sculptors. It looks like a sarcophagus and caryatids around it symbolize guard of honor.
