Many guides in Serbia recommend visitors to the country to visit this place.

During the Ottoman yoke, the fortress belonged to the Turks. The name of the ancient building (Kalemegdan), built over 2,000 years ago, is translated from Turkish as “castle square”. The Turks called this place on the banks of the Danube and the Sava “the hill of reflections.” A park has now been laid out on the site of the former military barracks. The unique historical museum complex includes the Kalemegdan park, the Upper and Lower cities. A military museum was also founded here, presenting countless exhibits – various types of weapons, ranging from medieval catapults, crossbows, nuclear cannons and crossbows to modern bombs and rockets.
