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.

  • History is always fascinating. This fortress is huge, with gardens providing space for a stroll, to walk your dog or even mountain bike. Wall to the top of the tower,and you have a 360 degree view of Belgrade, as well as the two rivers. There are 2 churches as well to see and tours for star gazing at night. Great place to visit.
  • Must see for every visitor, and memory holder for each native. There are so many things to enjoy at the old fortress that it is hard to put them all in one review. It is the symbol of Belgrade and Serbia in general. Built by Celts, destroyed and rebuilt by every army that passed through. What I love the most about it is the view over rivers, Observatory and the Zoo.
  • Well kept fortress with a military museum inside. Nice view of the river and sprawling gardens. Good place to walk . Kids can go to the zoo nearby or play in the park. Overall u can spend a relaxing 3 to 4 hrs here.
  • If you like fortresses, this is one. You can ramble around it to your hearts content. It's also home to some interesting arts and music venues.
  • If you want to go to some parties or concerts be careful they can rip you off easily. I didn't have a good experience anyway! But if you wanna hanging atound the city go, its one of the best place in BG for walking!
