The ancient fortress lies on two major European rivers, at the confluence which will restore peace to your mind. And around fort, there is a two-million-people metropolis. Sava and Danube rivers separate the Pannonia Plain and the Balkans picturesque hills and mountains. The statue of the “Belgrade winner”, who symbolizes the power of weapons, but also a desire for eternal peace, stands in this place as the border guardian. He is the symbol of Belgrade.
