A peaceful rest when exploring Belgrade. Sit on the grass looking down to the flow of Danube and Sava, then look for the small but charming St. Petka chapel, an hidden gem for tourist but a cherished place for Orthodox believers.

The fort has amazing views of the rivers and i really likes the idea of turning a fortress into a public place with sports facilities, restaurants and parks.

Easily the best place to visit in Belgrade. The mediaevel fortress and Kalemegdan park offer a surprisingly peaceful but very interesting venue full of history and offering wonderful views across the Danube and Sava rivers and the old and new cities of Belgrade.

They haven't restored this fortress so much as turned into a park with zoo and other attractions. The view is fantastic and it's the center of the city. A must see in a very pleasant and newly-revived city.

This seemed like all there is in Belgrade besides nightclubs and a great farmers market. The fort is medieval, with wall, bridges, and a moat, but contains a military museum that covers modern warfare (tanks and anti-aircraft missiles now occupy the moat). It is surrounded by a lovely park and views of the city and rivers.

It's enormous & has lots of great places to take pictures! Plus, it's SO old & you feel it as you walk around. The view is fantastic; under the castle there are 2 small churches, also worth to be visited. For anyone who goes to Belgrade... you can't miss this fortress!!!

Locals and tourists in a good mix. Love this place. Been here all of my trips to Belgrade. The place to relax and meet people. Military museum is very interesting with a huge assortment of arms and uniforms. And a little kick in the side of the USA in the end... On this massive fortress you are able to wander... More

Known as Kalamegden, this impressive fortification has wonderful views over the Danube and Sava rivers, and also old and New Belgrade. Surrounded by lush green parkland and accessible by foot from Knes Michailova and Trg Studenski, there are guided tours in many languages, a few souvenir sellers, one or two cafes, and interesting architectural features. A must see when in... More
