Adjacent to the outdoor market place, this historic structure is expansive and well maintained throughout with various points of interest to admire or tour along the way. Food and drink can be obtained and there are plenty of spots to rest one's feet.

If you want to relax or just lay in open air- you are welcome here. There were a lot of trains for children that were travelling around. If you like history here you will find a lot of such places to visit. and also you can touch them, climb.

Beautiful old fortress which has been rebuilt several times. There are remnants of old roman structures inside and a lovely park. The amphitheater is quite interesting and there are music festivals here at times.

A very good point though, is the history of the site which is scattered... More

Well preserved fortress in the heart of the city, big park with some cool bars. A visit to the "tvrđava" is worth.
