    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.

    The National Assembly in the city of Belgrade is a very beautiful, impressive, historical building. It really shows power. It is absolutely worth passing by this building.

    A trip back in time to the days of Serbia's monarchy, heavily influenced by Ottoman rule. The house is worth a visit for a glimpse behind the scenes.

    The home of the crown prince and princess, given that they are still in residence, is certainly worth a visit. The prince was ill the day we were there, but the princess was such a lovely lady, and so eloquent in her plea for better understanding among the people of the world--and that we all should do more to contribute to people's needs, that she was worth the price of admission. There was one downside to our visit the day we were there: the restroom facilities for visitors were out of order. Since we were on a tour from a river ship, the guide should have made a plan B. We were an oldish bunch, and it was frankly much too long a time--over three hours--between possible restroom breaks. The guide said just the wrong thing, as she observed that at least we men could use trees; the women would just have to suffer. Yuck!

    this is the place where Rigas Fereos was executed- you can find this tower inside the periphery of the Callemegdan castle-it can also be seen from the river-when you take a riverboat tour

    This was a highlight to our river cruise on the Lower Danube. Our group had a small private tour of the palace. As the tour was winding down Prince Alexander came out on a porch and spoke to our group for about 15 minutes about his humanitarian efforts in his country. By all means go here if you can.

    The Royal Palace and the White Palace are part of the same compound and are visited only by organized tour that can be booked at the Tourist Office in Central Belgrade (Kneza Mihaila & Pariska). You will be required to provide a copy of your passport). Visits are available only once in the morning, on Saturday and Sunday.
    You will be taken and returned by bus from across the Parliament.
    The Royal Palace is beautiful and interesting, the White Palace less so.
    The Crown Prince and his family actually live in the Royal Palace, in private appartments and share this home with London, where King Petar spent his exile.
    Good taste characterizes this modern royal dwelling. From outside, there are beautiful views over Belgrade surroundings.

    The area is wonderful, next to the Danube. The road to go there is magnificent, full of small valleys.

    It's still, however, a small village, with not much activity. So, if you're on a long term in belgrade, take some time to see if. if you only stay a few days/weeks in Serbia, that's not a priority.

    The Serbian Royal family actually lives in the palace but unfortunately they still do not own it. The royal complex is still owned by the Serbian Government.

    Highly recommended to visit

    It is now a (nice) restaurant but from the next year the Jewish community will get it back, I read. In the actual state it is a sad reminder of missing because murdered community. It is near to the park where all local religions have their churches as here were thr waiting point of the Habsburg monarchy, a border. Houses and streets around are in a state as if the Monarchy still exists -- picturesque slef-demolition. 10 mn walk from the market, across the main street, does worth the visit -- that is what my 5 stars want to say.

    This is a small museum, which is part of the Ethnographic Museum. It has displays of traditional clothing and jewellery from Serbia and Macedonia. There is also an exhibition on the ground floor about rakija production with some photography. The whole collection is housed in a reconstructed Ottoman home. The entry fee is extremely modest, only 60 dinars.

    Worth a quick look if you are in Savamala district.

    Topcider was political and administrative heart of Serbia during the 19th century .
    Inside this green Belgrade,s oases , known as Topcider park is ,Residence of Prince Milos,built between 1831_1834.At that time ,Konak housed the Palace of Serbian rulers.
    In this very Konak Prince Milos abdicated in favour of his elder son Milan ,in 1939,who died after only few months on the throne ,and Prince Milos eventually died here in 1960.
    His younger son was assassinated in 1868 not far from Konak.
    You can admire furniture, personal belongings,Prince ,s dinning room
    from that time.
    In front of the Konak grows one of the oldest tree in Europe,over 130 years old and protected by low as natural rarity.
    Near the Konak it was nice to visit St.Petar and St.Paul church built in. 1934 ,and it was private palace chapel of Prince Milos.
    This pleasant environment attract many tourists.

    Small building, located in the center of Zemun, just next to the market. Nice place for a walk and relaxing, roaming around and have some drinks at the next cafes.
