Gardos – If you want to go a little deeper into Belgrade, and visit not only its most famous buildings, but also its hidden gems, we advise you to go to Zemun. More precisely, on Gardoš. the Danube is perhaps the most beautiful on this side of the city, the area is quite quiet and suitable for walks. A visit to the Millennium Tower, better known as the Gardoš Tower, will be a real pleasure. Through narrow, cobbled streets surrounded by low houses, cheerfully colored, you will reach this historic building. Although the tower was built in 1896, the history of this place goes back to the Neolithic period. You can also climb the tower and enjoy the view of the Danube and Belgrade from a completely different angle. It’s worth a visit, and after you’ve finished the tour of the Gardoš Tower, you can continue your walk along the Zemun quay and sit down in one of the restaurants on the river bank that offer the best fish specialties. Our recommendation is, be sure to try the fish soup, there is nothing equal to it!
