Visit Nebojša Tower
This cannon tower on the Danube is one of the oldest buildings in the Belgrade fortress, now a huge park with lawns, trees, monuments and playing fields. Sadly, even this 15th-century bastion, the last bulwark of Christendom, was unable to hold out against the Turks forever. During the Ottoman occupation the tower became a terrible dungeon for many VIP prisoners.
A vast amount of effort and international funding was used to restore the Nebojša Tower and transform it into a state-of-the-art exhibition hall.

Have A Great View From The Avala Television Tower
Anyone with a little time and a car should consider an excursion up 511 meters Avala mountain. The wooded hill to the south of the city is a very popular destination. Lots of groups of school children can be seen wandering around, visiting the various heroes’ memorials.
The TV tower was originally built in 1965, and was destroyed during the NATO bombing. In 2009 it was rebuilt to the original plans. The 204 meters high tower looks like a space rocket.
