This is a really pretty place, just outside the city centre. It is a must visit. The views from there are very pretty and panoramic. Unfortunately, it was misty and raining when we visited but it was still very good. There were no charges to walk around, which we were surprised about. We didn't go into the specific museums, for...

While in Belgrade and if you re there on vacation i guess this is the number one sight TO see. A stroll inside the fortress walls, a visit in the museum and maybe a coffee break will take about three hours but it is well worth it especially if the weather is good plus you can buy many souvenirs on...

This place is a clear "must see #1" in Beograd. One can breathe history, you are expecting knights come around the corner each moment, such an excellent condition at the different sites, combined with a georgeous outlook. Just take time, go up and enjoy!

Its name is formed from the two Turkish words: "Kale" (meaning "fortress") and archaic word of Turkish origin "megdan" (meaning "battlefield"). The Kalemegdan Park, split in two... More
