(4.6/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
Get a sense of the great Western, Eastern, and Slavic civilizations at The Belgrade Fortress, 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 was a short visit but we got to take photos at some WWII tanks and cannons. Ideal for World of Tanks players to "show off" with their photos of Stug, T-34, PzII... 
  • Not only is the structure interesting architecturally and historically. it provides a stunning view of the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, illustrating the strategic importance of Belgrade. 
  • I would recommend you to leave a wonderful view especially at sunset. True Brits: inside the shrine remain.
