  • Kakva blaga Srbija ima, a kako se bahato prema njima odnosimo, pa to je prosto neverovatno! Tvrdjava je jedno velelepno zdanje, posetio sam je nekoliko puta. Ali...na obalama Dunava plovi smece, zidin...  more »
  • Smederevska tvrđava je jedna od najlepših koje sam posetio. Prvenstveno, zbog prostranstva čim se kroči unutar njenih zidina. Takođe, pruža se prelep pogled sa njenih viših delova do kojih se može doć...  more »
  • Hard to find this fortress in the city of Smederevo, because the tourist indications are almost ' non-existent... go to the station... which is long... then work it around to return to park between the tracks and the fortress, which is poised to collapse in some places (the large square towers). Smederevo is the former capital of the... better Serbia is worth not having a car registered in Belgrade... you will be well seen... This huge, built fortress on the Danube (North East of the city), was built in 2 years (1428/1430) by several thousand men, to protect against a possible Ottoman invasion (an agreement existed with the Ottoman empire, but uncertainty reigned...) .. .She was taken just 9 years after... by the Ottomans... It is bordered by the Danube... immensely wide! We have been very sorry and disappointed to find plenty of tags on the old stones of this beautiful fortress... it's a shame... Also a shame to see these old towers square (side rail), split from the bottom up and threatening to collapse with a crash at the foot of passing cars to leave this place full of history!

  • Nice and pleasant place for a relaxing walk.
  • Interesting place, visit it if you have time.
  • Smederevo fortress is situated on a large plateau at the confluence of the Danube and Jezava rivers. According to area of 11ha with no external walls and towers and 14.5ha it is the largest lowland fortress that type in Europe. The fort is triangular base and contains Big and Small town. The Big town was buit around 1439, and the Small town around 1428.
  • The fortress itself is impressive and beautiful, however it is filled with rubbish and graffiti all over the walls. The entrance to the fortress is free, there is a lot to see and a massive open space with grass and trees. There is a 120 dinars charge to go up one of the towers. Bear in mind that the weather is key for this attraction - when it is foggy and not sunny it is not quite as nice, but I'm sure that in the summer it is stunning!!
  • Was the biggest after Constantinple's fortress in the middle age in whole Europe.
