On this half-day tour you'll travel with an local guide into the heart of the Sumadija vineyards area, stopping in the town Topola. The town is known for wine production and was the center of many historical events during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.
The town was established by Djordje Petrovic Karadjordje, the leader of the Serbs during the First Uprising. There's a memorial complex here in his honor.
