Kalemegdan Park is the largest park and the most important historical monument in Belgrade. It is located on a 125-metre-high cliff, at the junction of the River Sava and the Danube. Its name is formed from the two Turkish words: Kale (meaning “fortress”) and archaic word of Turkish origin megdan (meaning “battlefield”). Kalemegdan Park, split in two as the Great and Little Parks, was developed in the area that once was the town field. It provides places of rest and entertainment. Belgrade Fortress and Kalemegdan Park together represent a cultural monument of exceptional importance (from 1979), the area where various sport, cultural and arts events take place, for all generations of Belgraders and numerous visitors of the city.
Just as Paris has its own Montparnasse, so Belgrade has its own bohemian corner – Skadarlija Old cobblestones, lanterns, and candelabras continue to preserve one part of history, while authentic cafés, which make this neighborhood famous, can be found on every corner. For all visitors of Skadarlija, with numerous national drinks and local cuisine specialties, the enjoyment will be complemented by traditional Old Town music performed by local musicians.
One of the main personalities of the city center is certainly the Knez Mihailova Street, which welcomes and bids farewell to numerous tourists and visitors every year and is a daily meeting place for many Belgrade citizens. Knez Mihailova Street, as a pedestrian zone and shopping center, is a street that offers a wide variety of amenities, ranging from cafes and restaurants, through the shops of renowned local and foreign brands, to a large number of galleries and cultural and historical monuments.
