Belgrade – reopening of tourism

July 5, 2021

Belgrade – Capital of Serbia is reopening tourism after more than one year of global pandemic. Now you can see tourists from every corner of the world in the bustling streets of Belgrade. Restaurant and bars are open again. Museums are crowded after more than one year, and tourists are exploring their favorite tourist sights. One of the most important destinations of the city is Kalemegdan fortress. This fortress, constructed all throughout the 1st to the 18th century, with the aim of being a strategic place for defense   on the hill above the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, today represents an outdoor museum.

The Victor monument, which is the symbol of Belgrade, is the focal point of the entire area which is made up of the Belgrade fortress, divided into the Upper and Lower town, and Kalemegdan park. Don’t miss out on seeing the Roman Well, the Great Gunpowder Warehouse, the Military Bunker and the Clock Tower on your walk. Take a look at the numerous exhibitions in the Military Museum, the Nebojša Tower and the Museum of Natural History. The Great Kalemegdan Staircase will bring you to a place with a breath-taking view over the Sava and Danube confluence, of Novi Beograd and Zemun. Down the landscaped path you can see many sculptures from the turn of the 20th century, erected in honor of writers, composers, and other public figures. You can read more about this sight on website of Tourism organization of Belgrade.

Across the mighty Danube river, you can find Zemun, part of the city with numerous medieval monuments. Even today, people say that Zemun represents a city within the city. The symbol of Zemun is the Millennium Tower on Gardoš Hill, located in the central part of the oldest preserved fortress from the 14th century. The Tower, widely known as the Tower of Janos Hunyadi, is open for visitors every day. The most interesting part of the Tower is the balcony with a viewpoint from which you can enjoy the panoramic view of the city during bright days.

Beside old monuments and fortresses Belgrade is also city of modern buildings and unique architecture. All over the city new scryscrapers are finding their way to impress tourists and citizens. One of the favorite activities of every tourist in Belgrade is to forget about your tourist map and just wonder around the city and find some new quart and discover some new monument, new building or park, meet local people and watch how one of the oldest cities in Europe is changing its face from day to day.
