Some of the first stories about the Zemun Fortress date back to 9th and 10th century. Today there can be seen just ruins of the medieval citadel. In the center of these ruins stands a magnificent tower. This main landmark of Zemun is actually a symbol of Hungarian domination who once lived in this area. Gardoš Tower is also known as Millennium Tower or The Tower of Janos Hunyadi.
This house built in 1828, decorated with the sundial is unique in Zemun. It is in Dubrovačka Street. Its architecture style is a mixture of classicism and baroque. Well-known Serbian writer, Jovan Subotić, spent his last years in this magic house.
The greatest part of the house was built in 1764 by a rich merchant from Zemun, Kuzman Jovanović. In 1772, the house was bought for 4,000 forints by Dimitrije Karamat, whose descendants still live here. Interior is well-preserved with the 18th and 19th century furniture and the works of famous painters such as Georgije Tenecki and Pavle Đurković.
Ičko’s House is a Classical-style building, built in 1793. It consists of a basement, ground floor and partial second floor formed by a high gable roof with dormers. The tavern Marko Kraljević was on the ground floor, while the first floor was used for housing. The building is one of the oldest preserved houses, and is representative of a town house at the end of the 18th century. The building is known as Ičko’s House because the rebel diplomat and trader Peter Ičko stayed in it from 1802–1803 when he had to leave Belgrade after the return to power of the Dahije. Ičko played a role in the First Serbian Uprising in 1804, working with the Serbian rebels.
It is an old citadel built on the white reef on the confluence of the River Sava and Danube. Throughout the centuries it was many times destroyed and reconstructed. Today it is the main landmark of the Serbian capital. Visiting Upper and Lower Town of the Belgrade Fortress and having a walk around Kalemegdan Park is essential if you want to experience the true spirit of history. Feeling of eternity is even more present thanks to “Victor”, a monumental sculpture - proud guardian of the city, peace and time.
