Nebojsa Tower, Belgrade
(3.6/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Tower is located in one of the oldest parts in Belgrade - Kalemegdan fortress! So much history, beautiful.
