The area covered by the fortress is quite large. It makes for a great place to just wander around and get lost. Sit in some nice shady areas and relax, take in the views over the Sava river, watch the locals sit and play chess, check out the small market and reflect on the history of the fortress.

Great place to see the confluence of the two main rivers from the highest point in the city! Also a Roman well and communist bunker deep below ground to explore! Most of the walking tours will come here but also good to check out on your own.

Such a lovely and well kept ancient fortress overlooking the confluence of the Sava and Danube. Everyone seems to go for sunset and it's worth it. Highly recommended!

The fortress is a lovely place to spend a morning or afternoon, looking round and enjoying the park, From the top there are wonderful views of the city and the rivers.

The grounds of the old fortress includes several museums, the Belgrade Zoo, a park, restaurants and the Fortress itself. This is the major landmark and must visit location in Beograd, expect to spend a lot of time here.
