The Gardos tower is a nice monument that has a great view over a really cute part of the city and the Danube. It is very cheap to go in and it is absolutely worth visiting this tower and the area. The walk up is about 2 minutes.

This is often called the Gardos Tower because it is on Gardos Hill in the Zemun neighborhood of Belgrade. When we visited, we could not enter because it was being repaired. We took photos of it when we were on a city tour of Belgrade. It was built in 1896 and stands as a monument to the Hungarians when Belgrade was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1896, Hungarians had been living in the area for 1,000 years.
Serbia has been ruled by Romans, Turks, Hungarians, etc. The building is impressive and I hope they reopen it to tours. Perhaps it is open now.

There are probably a few better views in and around Belgrade other than watching the sunset go down over the Sava/Danube river from the Gardos Tower in Zen during a sunny spring day. But its not just the views over the old town and nearby river that make the tower worth the effort, as it is also a great starting point to explore this adjacent fishermen-town. So just take a taxi from Belgrade here and start exploring - a welcome change from rather lively and hectic Belgrade a mere 30 minutes away!

More popularly known as the Millenium tower, this is the best spot to experience the classic Zemun views. Parking can be an issue in Zemun, so you might have to walk a bit but it's totally worth it. There is a cafe in the compound if you want to enjoy a drink overlooking the view.

Very nice place with a beautiful view over old Zemun and all the way to confluence of Sava and Danube. It is also called The Millennium Tower because it was built (together with 3 more towers in Austria-Hungary as border markers of their empire) to celebrate 1000 years of Hungarian presence in Europe. A little tricky to climb up for an XXL person because of the narrow stairs but its worth it. Inside are also a gallery, and a small souvenir shop. Just beside the tower (on the left) you can have a drink in a small cafe with good choice of imported beers, or eat at a restaurant (on the right) with huge terrace and continue to enjoy the view. Just behind the tower is a cemetery you should also pay a visit.

Nice view of the old town of Zemoun, the Danube river and the north side of Belgrade. Nearby a nice pub to take a break and relax. A monument with great historical value.

The Gardow Tower is on the hilltop of Zemun, a lovely suburb of Belgrade. You can walk through Zemun up to the hill so you need comfortable shoes :) But the view from the top is amazing!!! The Danube river and Zemun at its best! The Tower is a museum as well with ticket and next to it is a cafe with excelent view if you need a drink after the walk.

There is a bit of a climb required to reach the tower but there were some small old buildings and homes to see along the way.The surrounding view was beautiful and the tower was incredible to see.

Tower of Sibinjanin Janko (Janos Hunyadi, Millenium Tower) was built on the ruins of old fortress from 14th century. Defense walls and angular towers are the only legacy of old fortress.
