Beograd was for a long time the outpost of the Ottoman Empire, from the fortress you have a look onto the forelands where the Austro-Hungarian Empire ruled. Well worth a visit. Hire a guide or use a good book - the fortress and the city are loaded with history.

What better way to spend a couple of hours on a beautiful day then to wander around the Belgrade fortress. It's free to enter the grounds and there are plenty of park benched to sit and people watch. A small chapel offers bottles of water that locals believe help with female fertility. There are tanks, artillery and torpedoes on show... More

Belgrade was occupied by foreign invaders more times than any other city in Europe. One of those invaders was Ottoman Empire in 14th century. To protect its inhabitants, the city built Kalemegdan, an enormous fort on the top of the hill. Still well preserved and well maintained the fort has become favorite escape from busy city life for locals as... More

You get to see the army museum and the natural museum besides walking through the fortress. If you go with the Belgrade free tour the guides will make a very fun but interesting presentation of everything there.

Great views of the city, luscious green parklands with plenty of open space to chill. Some great old fortifications with a lot of history behind them. Some cool little bars with great views over the river as well. Definitely worth the visit. Rate it highly.

On. Summer evening, the park is full of locals and visitors alike. Take an ice cream and walk while overlooking the confluence of the rivers Sava and Danube...,during daytime, spend time in the small but charming zoo, or dine at the Kalegdanska Terasa...

From history to entertainment, something for all ages. Take a stroll within the walls and let your imagination take you back all the way to the 3 rd century BC when the story begins. Countless photo ops, zoo, breathtaking wiev, to amazing sunset, this place has so much to offer.

Pretty cool fortress, short walk away from the city center. Take a stroll, haggle with the shop keepers on the way, and enjoy the view. It's enjoyable, good for the family, or if you're trying to get away from the city center for a while.

Located across the road from the very popular Knez Mihailova pedestrian mall, the fortress and park provide a great walk and view over the Danube and Sava river junction. Many locals use the the vast parklands to sit under the shady trees in the hot summer sun or simply sit on the old fortress walls absorbing the river views. The... More

This fortress is located in the middle of Kalemegdan park, which is north-west of Belgrade city centre. What we noticed about the castle, was its clean maintained state. The towers, cannons, gates and The Victor all in pristine condition. Probably the best views of Belgrade are perched up upon the walls overlooking the city, and an interesting point were both...
