Kalemegdan, Belgrade

4.7
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.

It is a very calming and enjoyable place, especially if the weather is good. Friendly Serbian people might come up and try to explain you the history of the place if you're lucky.
