Kalemegdan, Belgrade

Get a sense of the great Western, Eastern, and Slavic civilizations at Kalemegdan, a commanding complex overlooking two rivers, the city, forests, and small islands. Dating back to the 2nd century CE, the site has served as a town, a military fortification, and today as one of the favorite spots for leisure and recreation. Other than castles, landscaped gardens, and ancient infrastructure, the fortress also hosts the Belgrade Zoo, several museums, and countless photography opportunities. Numerous agencies offer guided tours that can help you learn all about the site and even visit a portion of its mysterious underground catacombs. After sightseeing, grab a snack from a street stall and relax among the park's fountains and lush greenery.

  • Were there in April and had great weather. Simply settle on the fortress wall and enjoy the view of the park, as well as the river. If necessary, watch the boulders on the castle wall. A peaceful place.

  • The visit to the fortress should not be missing during a visit to Belgrade. In the summer also a meeting place for young and old in the evening.

  • A must see spot of the city of Belgrade! Vibrant and great atmosphere in the park! You get to see monuments and beautiful trees. However the nice vide of this location is given by the people strolling around! Needless to mention the breathtaking view of the river and the other side of the city! Strongly recommended!
  • One of the best places in Belgrade. Must see the location for everyone. A place where history meets present, with its beautiful architecture, monuments, parks and river views it promises a good time. On weekends, you may be able to catch a local festival complete with food, beer and music.
