The Belgrade Fortress stands where the Sava River, which flows through the city of Belgrade, meets the Danube River. The history of the fortress dates back to the 3rd century B.C., when it was built by the Celts. Since the Roman Empire, the fortress has served as a border fortification under the rule of various countries, and it has become one of the most popular tourist spots in Belgrade due to the historical value of the ruins from various periods, as well as the excellent view of the river.
Belgrade Old Town
The Old Town stretches out at the foot of the Belgrade Fortress, which stands overlooking the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers. Knez Mihailova Street, which connects Kalemegdan Park with the fortress and Republic Square, the center of the old town, is lined with historic stone buildings built in the 1870s. The cobblestone pedestrian street is lined with cafes and stores and is always crowded with locals and tourists.
