It is definitely a must-see!

  • A magical place! A lot of activities to do, a magnificent Church , a lovely zoo and plenty of places to park your car.There are also nice restaurants nearby; Thus, the visit can only be pleasant!
  • Cool place. Much of it is either under construction, is essentially new, or has yet to be renovated and is thus unreachable. That said, you get a great view and it's an amazing place to be for sunsets!
  • The fortress is beautiful! Lots of good spots to get a good view of the Sava and of the city.
  • The Belgrade Fortress is a must if you are visiting Belgrade. One of the most enchanting fortresses in Europe.
  • A historic fortress dating back to Roman times situated in the city centre and completely free to enter. Stunning views of the Danube and Sava rivers, an observerty, a war museum, an exhibition house which is a part of the natural history museum are a few of the reasons that you should visit.
