Nebojsa Tower, Belgrade

3.4
#12 of 22 in Historic Sites in Belgrade
Sitting near the river below Belgrade Fortress, Nebojsa Tower served as a defense object during Hungarian rule and later as a dungeon that the Ottomans used for interrogations. The best-known prisoner here was the Greek national hero Rigas Feraios, who was tortured to death inside its walls. Numerous Serbian soldiers were also murdered at the site, which makes this tower one of the darkest symbols of the city. The 22 m (72 ft) tall octagonal structure dates to 1460; enter it to see exhibits on medieval Belgrade, Ottoman rule, and the rise of the free Serbian state. A mass gravesite of victims from the Jasenovac concentration camp also lies around this tower.

    15TH century tower, which served as a defence and observation of the river drives in the rivers Danube and Sava. It is inserted in the complex of the fortress right in front of where the two rivers join. Was used as common cemetery during World War II where the bodies from a concentration camp further north and floated on the River Sava, were thrown by fishermen to pits in the fortress. Today is recovered and is used as a museum.-
