The Kalemegdan Fortress is the center of the ancient city of Belgrade. At the bottom level it's Roman, then medieval European, then Ottoman. You can spend a whole day here, no prob. There's gardens, a cafe with a killer view, an observatory, a zoo, the Belgrade military museum, statues, ancient gates and walls and crenellations, a tomb, etc. This is... More

I think is where anyone would go on its first day to the city. As well preserved as possible, it remains a meeting place for the Serbs, a fantastic tourist attraction, it offers amazing views to the two local rivers, Sava and Danube and a relaxing spot to walk, chill on a bench or....meet your loved one. It'd be better... More

There is no better place to spend your evening/afternoon in Belgrade than here! Awesome sunsets with views of New Belgrade, War Island and the confluence. And the best part, for me, there are always photo exhibitions in the open, just to mention one thing.

well preserved, beautiful mighty fortress above the rivers of Sava and Danube. Many groomed paths with a beautiful view on the New Belgrade, Ada and Belgrade port on the Sava river. Many historic buildings and monuments are located here (chapels, turbe, museums). We were rested at the Kalemegdanska terasa caffee with the fantastic panorama view.

Our wedding lunch reception and civil marriage ceremony was held here in 2003 and it was a brilliant afternoon, done with very little advance planning because the restaurant took care of everything. Going back this year just for a cup of coffee was lovely. There is so much personal touch around the place, even though the coffee terrace is separate... More

When entering the gate, pop by the small gallery and ticket booth on your right and buy the 4-in-1 ticket for 400 dinars. This'll give you access to all the sights in the area and is a good deal. There are also some restaurants on the old fortress with a nice view and good aircondition to make your day of... More

This castle is located on a hill on the banks of the river. Inside the park above the castle are a military museum. There are also vendors selling souvenirs, drinks, and ice creams here. The fortress itself has many people congregating here at night and sometime buskers. The end of the shopping street empties into the fortress. There is even... More

The Belgrade Fortress and its surrounding is very nice, green and natural, over ancient history. We had a Turkish-speaking guide, who showed us around the fortress and all the Ottoman traces. It was very nice to hear about Ottoman history and effects in Belgrade.
