After only one visit, one has to come back... A short walk - using steep stairs or a less steep road and you're in front of the Tower overlooking Zemun and downtown Belgrade, as well as the confluence of the Sava and Danube. If you enter the tower (which is also a gallery) you can have a chance to look... More

Nice perspective on Belgrade you can get from the top of Gardos Tower. Really cheap to visit, real good place for photos. Take a deep breath, open your eyes and enjoy the sights.

Always nice to visit the tower walking from the centre of Zemun to the top. Beautiful view, cute restaurants, old steep cobbled streets, lots of stairs, great for photoshooting, has that old town atmosphere...really love to walk these streets and to watch the city panorama from the top.

The Gardos tower is easy to get to by bus from Belgrade city. The walk along the Danube or through the narrow streets to the Gardos is wonderful. Once there the views can be savoured by looking back to Belgrade city, out over the river or across the rooftops of Zemun. There is a yellow church and cemetery next to... More

Love the place. It is one of seven towers that Hapsburg empire built in 18th century, to mark 1000 years of New Roman Empire under Hapsburg rule in Europe. The only thing that's really bad is a lack of sitting areas on the hill top.

It's a little bit far from the center of Belgrade but it is so easy to go there with bus and totally worth it. The view from the tower is so good and there are a few pubs/cafes you can sit by the view. I really enjoyed exploring this side of the town. There's was a wedding photo shoot when... More

Interesting, good view on the Dunav river and part of old Zemun. Way up to there is through the old Zemun town with some original cafes and restaurants that may attract your attention. The bankside offers a number of good fish restaurants and cafes.

A lot of interesting history fact can be seen and heard in this place. Had a great walk, coffee shops are near, so you can sit and relax, and, although other reviewers said it, but there is a great view from the tower, which is made in different styles, and definitely should be on your visit list. Hope they will... More
