Kalemegdan Park

This is the biggest park in the city and it’s located in the very center of the Belgrade Fortress. The plateau in the middle of the Fortress was transformed into a park during the last few decades of the 19th century. The construction of Veliko stepenište (the Grand Staircase) and the decoration of the walkways with flowerbeds during the period between two world wars, really helped bring the one-of-a-kind view of the Sava and Danube river confluence to life.

Museums, galleries, cultural and historical monuments, the fortress itself, the zoo, fun activities and being able to relax in its nature make Kalemegdan the perfect place to spend an entire day touring this park. Walking along the pathways you can also see many monuments erected in the honor of famous individuals from Serbian history and culture, including poets and writers: Milan Rakić, Jovan Dučić, Đura Jakšić, philologist Đura Daničić, composer Stevan Mokranjac...

There are also many activities for the youngest to take part in at Kalemegdan Park. A small theme park is also near the zoo, and at the “Cvijeta Zuzorić” Art Pavilion the biggest playground in the city is located, which looks like a ship, with three “islands” slightly above the ground.
