We caught the 83 bus from bus station in Belgrade out to Zemun and walked up to the tower. Fantastic views over Zemun, the Danube river and looking back towards Belgrade. Great trip out of the city but make sure you validate your bus ticket as the Serbian ticket inspectors do not suffer fools easily.

It works till 9pm In summer one can see city lights and it is very romantic! It has only one problem! Annoying mosquitos!!! Because it is near Danube these blood suckers are not avoidable! Bring repellent with you!

I found the Gardoš Tower (or Sibinjanin Janko Tower) a beautifull sight. You get to see all of Belgrade along with Danube & Sava rivers and of course Zemun. I also found very interesting the fact that people when visit, write on the bricks of the tower their name and the year they've visited the tower. I found names from... More

Found the Tower of Sibinjanin Janko by accident, walk along the river you will come to a stair case up the hill. It's build on an at the top of the hill on an old Roman fort with only a few of the walls remaining. The view of the river and of Zemun is great. The path leading down into... More

A bit out of the way, across the river from Belgrade. But there are many restaurants close by lining the banks of the Danube. The tower itself is OK, but unless you are making the effort to eat at one of the many excellent nearby restaurants, it is probably not worth the effort just for the view.

The tower was locked when I was there yesterday:( But the view from the top of the hill was amazing. You will see the whole Zemun area and further to Novi Beograd. The area is also very nice with small cozy streets full of history

For the price of about 2 EUR you get a lovely scenic view on the whole Belgrade. There is no restaurant at the top, just a terrace. On bricks are visible carved-in names and dates of visitors over 100 years old!

this place is a fairytale maerial, what an odd mix of style, it was tricky to climb but the view was great and history behind it is cool. Sibinjanin Janko is a historical person, Janosh Hunyadi.

There is a good view back over towards Belgrade from here, and a pleasant cafe with outdoor seating nearby. It is quite a stiff climb up from the main street, and not well posted. It is worth the effort. There is also an interesting Church nearby, and it is possible to attend a funeral if one is ongoing (interesting to... More
