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.
