The Belgrade Fortress (Beogradska Tvrdava) was built and destroyed nonstop, beginning in the 1st century AD. Originally the fortress was built as a Roman outpost, located opposite the connecting point of the banks of the Sava and Danube Rivers, in order to enable the Romans to control the strategic point.
Over the years, the fortress was often looted, sometimes destroyed and rebuilt. Everyone passed here through history from hand to hand. Who did not mess, hold or destroy this fortress? - the Byzantines, the Slavs, the Ottomans, the Hungarians, and the Austrians. Everyone passed by.
Until the 18th century, the fortress underwent dozens of transformations and changes. The stories the thick walls could tell, along with the displays of armor and cannons here, are evidence that can hint at this history.
Today, the fortress and the park host many tourists each year and a variety of art, sports and tourism events.
