Kalemegdan - Kalemegdan is Belgrade's largest park within which Kalemegdan fortress is located. If you don't visit Kalemegdan, you cannot say you have visited Belgrade. In this park you will find the Roman well, the most mysterious place of Belgrade that Hitchock himself was scared of, and the Victor monument, the most photographed monument in Belgrade. At Kalemegdan you can take a walk, see an exhibition, have a cup of coffee or play a game of chess with some of the amateur chess players...
And back home, when you think about Belgrade, you'll remember Kalemegdan.
The Victor Monument - The victor monument is the most photographed monument in the city and one of Belgrade's symbols. This naked young man should have stood on Terazije square, but he was so scandalously undressed for Belgrade maidens that he was moved away from the center and additionally erected on a five meter tall pillar, making anyone who wanted to look at his nakedness try extra hard.
Military Museum - Those who have not had their photo taken on the tank or a kissed hidden
behind the cannon, know nothing about the Military Museum. However, the Military Museum is much more than that. Excellent location on Belgrade fortress combined with great exhibitions make this museum one of the must-see attractions of Belgrade.
Princess Ljubica's Residence - The way people lived during 19th century can best be seen at
Princess Ljubica's residence. The cozy interior of this distinctive building of mixed oriental and western style takes you back in the times when the oriental life of Serbia was starting to be infuenced by life in Vienna.

The Orthodox Cathedral, the Patriarchate, Princess Ljubica's Residence, restaurant "Question mark", the location of the National Library destroyed in the German bombing of 1941 are all at Kosancicev venac. The most beautiful views of the Sava River and New Belgrade are from this place, the same views that Arsenije Njegovan enjoyed for years not daring to leave the house. Just like the hero of the novel, this area remained trapped in time giving it a special charm.
