Holidays in Kalemegdan Park

Holiday Travel Guide

Learn about the bloody battles that took place in the pleasant fields of the largest and most important park in Belgrade.

Kalemegdan Park is a vast open space with green fields, monuments and pathways that meander through forests. It stands atop a cliff overlooking the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, adding to its scenic setting in the shadow of the Kalemegdan Citadel. Take part in the many sports activities and cultural events that occur here regularly.

The eastern section of the grounds is known as Little Kalemegdan Park. Sit on a deck chair beside the Cvijeta Zuzorić Pavilion on a sunny day during the hot summer. Attend artistic exhibits in the elegant yellow building dating back to 1928. Bring your kids to the Belgrade Zoo to see the many exotic animals. The zoo is known for its array of white animals to honor Belgrade. The city’s name translates as White City.

A little south of the fortress is Large Kalemegdan Park. Stroll along the pleasant promenades beside the trees. Visit various institutions, such as the Military Museum and the Museum of Forestry and Hunting. Gaze up at the Monument of Gratitude to France, consisting of a large white column supporting a female figure.

Snap photos of the historic Kalemegdan Citadel that stands majestically in the background. It has been the site of about 115 battles and many reconstructions over the centuries. Relax at a café and enjoy the lively atmosphere at a fair that is a stark contrast to the structure’s gloomy history.

Note that the park’s name comes from the Turkish for Fortress Battlefield, in reference to the many wars fought on these grounds. Plans and initial construction of the park commenced in 1869 and features were added over time.

Kalemegdan Park is about 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers) north of the central part of Belgrade. Ride the tram to the park’s eponymous stop or take a bus to a nearby station. You can also arrive by train at the Belgrade Donji Grad station.
