Tour by Bogdan
Local Ambassador

I am a theater director, a founder of NGO that explores culture and history of Slavic people and a world traveler.

I would describe myself as a curious person while others usually say that I am charismatic as well.

I am open to new people and experiences - in fact, it is my job to be - a lot of interviews and appearances on tv are a must for young directors. I am very talkative, I could probably keep a conversation on every subject imaginable.

I studied in Edinburgh for a bit, and
I spent two years in the US. so I should be fluent in English. Besides English, I can speak Serbian (native) Bulgarian and Russian, and I hope to be fluent in German really soon :)

I moved to Belgrade during my studies and I fell in love with the city.

I like this job because I have met so many wonderful people and I even made a few priceless friendships.

My hours, though costly, are flexible and effective: you'll be able to see and find out more than you thought you would in a very compact packaging.

For private tours, feel free to contact me prior to your reservations so we can choose the best tours for you.

Description

The aim of this tour is to introduce you to Serbian culture and history through art. We’ll visit Saint Mark's Church and the Church of Saint Sava, which is the second-largest Orthodox temple in the world.

I’ll focus on the historical importance of sights, the times when they were constructed, why they’re so important, the rich iconography of the churches, and how it relates to modern-day Serbs.

I’ll also do my best to explain the impossible-to-explain mentality of the Serbian people.

Check out my profile to see if I’m a good match for your needs.

If you’re interested, we can add sights to the tour.

for Bogdan
Bogdan is a rare find. He is devoted to giving you the best time possible. For a fellow his age he has travelled so many already. No wonder he speaks so many languages. His english is excellent. Thank goodness because he talks a lot, haha. This is good, there is a lot to tell about the beautiful city of Belgrade, and Bogdan seems to know all about it and the history alike.

Immediately after booking the tour, Bogdan inquired about our wishes and expectations. Conversation was very easily. He made some reservations in advance, which turned out a must in the more popular venues. We agreed upon a place to meet where we started a tour through the city center. After a while we sat down in a Kafana, a typical Serbian pub. Would be difficult to find on your own, but inside was amazing, the place was filled with memorabilia of the Tito era from top to bottom. Live folk music made the experience complete.

I wish Bogdan a lot of success with his career as director. I'm sure he would succeed in every endeavor he engages in. He sure is a good guide, highly recommend him.
