Through the centuries of medieval history the fortress of Belgrade held a crucial role in the christianity's fight against the expansion of the Ottoman empire.
Built by the serbians and latter "upgraded" to a Vauban style fortress by the Habsburgs, today it is still standing above the Danube in the city of Belgrade.
For those of you who love history it is a great place to visit ... especially if you are going to visit it with a guide ... you will learn a lot of interesting facts.
The fortress itself is not in the greatest shape and I would need some refurbishing work here and there but overall still is an excellent experience.
When you are in Belgrade I recommend you go visiting - it is definitely worth it and the entrance is free of charge - so it can be also a very cost effective activity.

These old walls would probably tell you a story or two if they could talk, but since they can't, I guess you just have to read the placards scattered around the fortress complex (if you want to learn more about it).

Paved walking paths, lots of grassy areas for a picnic or a place to rest under a shady tree, some great vantage points overlooking the Danube and the Sava, a free outdoor military museum, and a medieval torture devices museum (600 dinar pp, or $6 USD). Worth checking out the latter if you're interested in medieval torture devices, though I probably wouldn't advertise that you're "interested in medieval torture devices" on social media or whatever. It's not for the faint of heart, however, as it showcases some pretty grisly items, and is complete with a soundtrack (that isn't really necessary, in my opinion) of heavy breathing, water dripping, etc. The items themselves, as well as the accompanying drawings for several, serve their purpose quite well.

Belgrade Fortress is the core and the oldest section of the urban area of Belgrade. It was part of the itinerary of the Walking Tour of Belgrade that I joined.

This is the place where we stayed the longest during the tour since our tour guide was explaining the importance of the Fortress and the Danube and Sava River to the history of Serbia.

The statue of the Victor is one of the most famous landmarks in Belgrade which is located in the Belgrade fortress at the place where the medieval castle stood once. It was erected in 1928 to commemorate the Kingdom of Serbia’s war victories over the Ottoman Empire.

This is I believe one of the Must see places in Belgrade

This is an amazing Fort! There is so much area to walk around with nice green grass. There are massive walls that you can sit on and see amazing views such as the confluence of the Sava and Danube Rivers. There are 2 really cool churches that you can check out. There is a military museum which has tanks and other weapons outside that you can walk right up to. At the time we visited, the dinosaur area was closed off but you could still see it through a chain link fence. There are basketball courts, tennis courts and more!

Massive fortress located on top of a hill right next to the confluence of Sava River with Danube. Obviously, a key strategic place in the country - this is probably why it was founded in the 3rd century BC and defended ever since. It worth visiting mainly for the views over Belgrade and Zemun. The most spectacular sight is the confluence of Danube with Sava River. Cruise ships mooring at the Sava quay and various boats floating on Danube can be spotted from the belvedere point next to Victor monument.
There are some kiosks within the citadel walls from one can buy beer, soft drinks and popcorn.
The fortress is surrounded by a large park with old shady trees and host a military museum, a water well dating back from Roman era and a clock tower among other monuments. Strolling in and around the fortress is a nice way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon in Belgrade. The entrance is free.

No matter how many times I visit Belgrade, I have to walk through Kalemegdan.
It’s beauty and views that it offers are amazing.
Not that many activities but just that walk and views will be pleasant and take you away from loud and crowded streets of the city.

We spent a short time visiting the Belgrade Fortress at Kalemegdan Park. It was still enough to get a feel for the historic significance at this well built fort with the grounds preserving the military weapons and the imposing stature of it's placement at the confluence of the Sava River and the Danube River. Built between the 1st and 18th Centuries, one is taken back in time as you walk the grounds, admiring this impressive landmark to Belgrade. Serbians are proud of this sight and want you to enjoy a visit here to appreciate it's contribution to their history. We did and if you travel all the way to Serbia, please see this sight as a part of Serbia's history.

A beautiful and well maintained historical fortress which is located at the confluence of two rivers i,e. River Saba and River Danube. Entry into the fortress is free for all (no tickets). You need to have a professional guide. We visited it on a very hot day once the temperature was around 36 degrees Centigrade. So it was a bit hectic. You need plenty of time to have a complete visit and absorb it’s true

The Belgrade Fortress is an important historical building in Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. Inside this fortress, you can see the Military Museum (where you can learn a lot of the history of Serbia), some very beautiful gates, The Victor (one well-known monument in the upper part of the fortress) or some other places. Also, from here, you can see wonderful views of two rivers: Sava and the place, where it joins to Danube.

Fantastic place to visit. I wish I have more time to explore. This place offers great collection of 2nd world war tanks and guns. I really enjoyed exploring its walls and view points. For small kids they have a dinosaur museum and play ground. I will surely back soon to see more.
