Kosutnjak Hill is a forest and a park, as well as one of the outing areas Belgrade's prefer. The hill is 250 m high and covers the area of 330 hectare. The evergreen and deciduous forest is crisscrossed by many forest trails.
Kosutnjak Hill (Doe Hill) owes its name to the doe that once roamed freely here. Until 1903 the dense forest was a royal hunting reserve, which was then opened to the public.
Kosutnjak Hill includes two specialized facilities: "Pionirski grad" ("Pioneer's Town") sports and recreational center, and "Filmski grad" ("Film town") with many studios, buildings and equipment for the film industry. Further down the hillside lies the "Kosutnjak" sports and recreational center which includes playgrounds for football, athletics, volleyball, basketball and handball, as well as five open air swimming pools, and one indoor pool. Kosutnjak Hill also has a ski track open the year round allowing skiing lovers to practice summer and winter alike. At the foot of the hill, which was once part of the hunting grounds of the Royal Obrenovic, family is the spring called "Hajducka cesma" ("Ruffians Fountain") .
Kosutnjak Hill also has the "Kosutnjak" camping grounds, the "Trim" hotel, and the restaurants "Kosuta", "Golf", "Devetka" ("Nine"), "Filmski grad" ("Film's City")and "Panorama".
