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.

  • Great restaurant! They have gluten free options as well. The view is awesome.

  • The relationship between price and quality is unsatisfied.It's far expensive. Old and worn furniture. An incredible look.

  • Gorgeous place. Mouthwatering, first class food that looks like artwork. Polite waiters, great atmosphere, amazing views, very impressive. Excellent service, delicious food, heavenly place on the best location of Belgrade called Kalemegdan. Walking around Kalemegdan is magical and memorable. Very welcoming to tourists. Unmatched hospitality in Belgrade. Definitely recommend it, a must try! Belgrade rocks.

  • The view is wonderful and the restaurant its self is lovely but the food is below average . Over cooked fish that looked like cardboard and hard bitter calamari .One good perk is they allow dogs as the small white lap dog behind me barked while I chocked back my meal . Also what does one tell a waiter when asked how was the meal ??? Do you be honest to his face or do you just leave a 3 star review ?? Hmmm

  • Beautiful location, great food. Wonderful for celebrations. A must see in Belgrade.
