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.

  • We did the Fortress as part of our Viking Cruise tour. This was on of many Castles & Fortress we have seen and all have some amazing history and many were used up to WWII for one reason or another.  more »
  • In the countryside with beautiful view, you can walk around and rest and take great pictures. Accessible from the bottom via stairs. Present an exhibition of war machines, the Dinosaur Park

  • Very nice views of two major rivers merging. Fortress is built high up on the banks of the river. Worth a visit.  more »

  • Such a great place where one spend hours in. I sat there for hours walking around, watching the rivers, reading a book, listening to music, watching old men play chess, and so on.. 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.
  • During my month long stay in Belgrade, I spent many nights watching the sunset and taking in local culture between the park and the fortress wall. It's really something else. On weekends, you may be able to catch a local festival complete with food, beer and music. Put a visit to the park and fortress on your list. You won't regret it. Make it a romantic night out or bring a blanket and a bottle of wine for a catch up with friends. Be sure to see a sunset!
  • Definitely 'must to be seen' by all visitors of Belgrade. Kale Megdan Park is the largest park and the most important monument of Serbia's capital. It is next to the place where the rivers Danube and Sava come together. The park provides places of rest and entertainment and it is really interesting and pleasant place. The historical museum there inside the former Turkish fortress, the walking paths, the Belgrade Zoo, the small market by one of the entrances and a lot of other interesting and intriguing things attract a lot of people and definitely deserve your attention.
  • Great views of Danub and Seva rivers.
  • Perfect place with great events
