Highlights

Belgrade fortress

One of the most important monument of Belgrade history, one the main military bastion of Belgrade was built on a hill above the Sava and the Danube in I century A.D. (and from the I till XVII century several times destroyed, rebuilt and redesigned). The Belgrade fortress consists of the Upper and the Lower town and the Kalemegdan Park.


This oldest fortress was build as a military camp for the IV Flavius’s legion. Beside fortification, Sigidunum was formed, and later on, at the same place, the Slav city of Belgrade. The destiny of the fortress had always been closely connected to the destiny of the town. This means that all the destruction, fires, bombardments and conquers left their mark no only on the town but also on the fortress itself, so that today one can find Serbian ramparts between roman walls at the bottom and Turkish and Austrian fortifications on top.

Kralj Aleksandar Boulevard

This longest city street has through the course of history changed its name and had been known as Carigrad's road, "Golden cannon" alley, Marko's street, Fisheklija, (at the end of 19th century) King Alexander Obrenovic's street, the Oslobodjenje boulevard, the Boulevard of revolution (after World War II), and its present name, King Alexander’s boulevard, it got at the beginning of the 21st century. In the 90’s, during the grey economy period, it was very difficult to walk the street, since the pavements were transformed into street markets of (usually low quality) goods with low prices. Today, this street justifies the term boulevard. In it you can find the Law school, the Architecture and Civil Engineering Faculty, the University library and three monuments.
