Topčider Park

  Bulevar Vojvode Mišića     more than a year ago
A great place to spend a sunny afternoon. Prince Miloš Obrenović set about developing the park in 1831, by furnishing it with royal necessities: a residence, a church, barracks, and a tavern. The residence was completed in 1834, and that is where the mighty Prince lived his last years and where he died. When the residence was finished, the area was planted with plane-trees, the biggest of which, protected by state, is today 44m high, with a crown diameter of 50m, casting a shade of 1,400m². You can ride round the park in a carriage and have scrumptious lamb roast on the terrace of Milošev Konak Restaurant. The park hosts a monument to the Swiss professor, publicist and criminologist Archibald Reiss (1876-1930), who arrived in Serbia as a member of a team inquiring into the atrocities committed by the Austro-Hungarian and Bulgarian army in Serbia during the WW1, and stayed to live in Belgrade, where he founded the Belgrade Police crime lab.
