Kalemegdan ? Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade: 197 reviews and 396 photos
Looking down from the northern walls of the fortress you can see the medieval tower of Nebojsa. The tower was built by the Hungarians in the 15th century as a defensive tower in the lower town area. It was situated by the lower town harbour and pier and could monitor traffic up and down the Danube.
During the siege of Belgrade the tower garrison held out strongly against the Ottoman Turks who eventually broke through into the lower town after setting fire to the tower. During the turkish occupation the tower was used as a prison.
