Kalemegdan,Part of Belgrade Fortress,Belgrade. / I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now...

Kalemegdan is the most beautiful and biggest park in Belgrade, which is also the most important cultural and historical complex, in which the Belgrade Fortress stands high above the Sava and Danube confluence. The name Kalemegdan applies only to the spacious plateau surrounding the Fortress, which was turned into a park in the eighties of the XIX century. When the Fortress served as Belgrade's chief military stronghold, the plateau was a place from which the enemy was kept under observation and where preparations were made for combats. Its name derives from the Turkish words kale (field) and megdan (battle). The Turks also called it Fichir-bair, which means "the contemplation hill". This is such a beautiful place to visit.

Before the First World War, Kalemegdan spread to the now still existing stone stairway (leading to the lower terrace). The ground beyond this stairway remained completely untouched and overgrown with weeds until 1929. In 1931, the park expanded also to Upper Town. Monuments to many famous cultural and public persons were erected in the park. Kalemegdan now includes the Military Museum, Cvijeta Zuzorić Art Pavilion, City Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments, Zoo, a children's amusement park, a large number of sports fields, restaurants and so on. I wrote about Zoo in my last post.

The Little and Large Kalemegdan Park are as follows:

Mali Kalemegdanski park (Little Kalemegdan Park) occupies the area in the eastern section, which borders the urban section of Belgrade. Northern section of Little Kalemegdan Park is occupied by the Belgrade Zoo ( check out my post about it ), opened in 1936. The art pavilion Cvijeta Zuzorić is also located here.

Veliki Kalemegdanski Park (Large Kalemegdan Park) occupies the southern corner of the fortress, with geometrical promenades, a military museum, a museum of forestry and hunting, and the Monument of Gratitude to France.

Despot Gate and Castellan Tower is often referred as to Eastern Upper town’s Gate. During the Middle Ages this was the main entrance to the Belgrade’s Fortress.side the gate there is also a massive quadrangular Castellan’s Tower. It owns its name to the fact that it was the home of a castellan – Fortress commander in the eighteen century. This tower was severely damaged during the bombing of Belgrade in 1915. It has been partly reconstructed in 1938.

This is honestly one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited in my entire life.I love going there because I just feel so relaxed and peacefull every time I visit it. I had a great time there this year,I didn't have time to visit the rest of the Fortress because I was really busy and It was really hot that day (I almost passed out!) so that's a pity,because I wanted to take photos to share them for you.

I hope that you all love the photos I prepared for you in this post,because I just ADORE them! Maybe you won't believe me when I tell you that I'm done with my exams for this school year! Wohooo! I can finally rest and relax! Summer vacation starts next Friday,and m birthday is on the 17th of June,so my friends and family are going to celebrate the end of this school year and my birthday! I have all A's at the end! I am really proud of myself,I studied like crazy this year and It all paid off. CONGRATS UNA! 
I wanted to tell you that I'm going to village next Saturday,and I will be away for 2 weeks. :)
