Avala Peak is the nearest mountain to the capital of Belgrade, Serbia. It is visible from most parts of the city and is a haven for hikers and picknickers.

The peak is accessible via multiple trails, including a macadam road. The hike up is relatively easy and a restaurant and military museum (amid a beautiful conifer forest) are located at the top.
