The Belgrade Fortress - Review
It’s not often that a fortress is also a park, but that’s how Belgrade views the fortress. It’s always open. You can stroll in anytime. The fort overlooks the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. Many times, and then a few more times, the fortress has been destroyed, razed to the ground, and then rebuilt.
It’s the oldest part of Belgrade; in fact, for many years, when people said ‘Belgrade’, they meant only and all those things that were within the fortress. Today, there are two sections to the fortress – Upper and Lower Town.
In the Upper town, you’ll find the fortress ramparts and gates, theMilitary Museum, the St. Petka Chapel the churches, the Roman Welland the Pobednik statue. The statue is a great place from where to catch a sunset. St. Petka’s chapel is a must visit – it’s a very pretty little medieval church, with enchanting, lavish frescoes on its walls. They say the waters of this church has healing powers.
In the Lower Town, you’ll find the Daredevil Tower, the Turkish Baths and the Gate of Carl VI.
The Kalemegdan Park is considered as an extension of the fortress itself. It’s very popular in it’s own right. It’s shady walks, convenient benches, sculptures and romantic couples strolling about make it one of the city’s favourite natural retreats on a hot day.

The Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade Reviews
everything nice, but a bit pricey. roughly twice more expensive than any other belgrade restaurant. not crowded though and service really nice.
I love the place actually since i have been a couple of times there. So why negative? We tried to plan our wedding dinner here. 1st to reach someone appears to be impossible, when it comes to 'management'. 2nd the young woman which was supposed to take care of our wishes neither has manners nor does she know how business is supposed to work. Well, with only 10 guests we r apparently not of their importance.
Nice terrace, with an amazing view, especially at sunset. You can also see the zoo from one side of the terrace. I would recommend the corner table, best of both worlds.
So far the best wedding venue I have been to. It is gorgeous and spacious, food and service were unbelievable! The only small issue is that it was too hot as the wedding was in July, but there is a big balcony where you can go out and have a smoke. In my opinion, it is ideal for weddings and other events.
Magnificent foot, stunning music, extraordinary atmosphere. Only flaw is the absence of filter coffee. And I have to admit that I have eaten one of the best ice cream in my life here.
