We start our visit with the Upper fortress area. It includes well-preserved artillery structures dating from the mid-18th century as well as a medieval fortification - an acropolis with original or partly reconstructed ramparts, gateways, towers, barbicans and the excavated ruins of a 15th century castle. A few Turkish monuments and some older, ancient Roman remains also lie in this area. In this section of the fortification complex you will visit the fine Exhibition on the history of Belgrade Fortress (open 11 AM - 5 PM) and the elegant 18th century Baroque Clock Tower (or the Roman Well instead). Next, a tour of the Eastern Ward includes the Rose Church of Our Lady (visit) along with a panoramic view of the Lower fortress and its monuments - the Nebojsa Tower, the Baroque Gate of Karl VI, and the remains of the medieval Metropolitan Palace.
