One of the places you have to visit when you come in Serbia. Big fortres with a great view on Danube river. Fortres was damaged in explosion in WW II, but still amazing. They are reparing fortres right now.

Unlike Belgrade Fortress and Kalemegdan Park, the area within the walls of Smederevo Fortress is undeveloped--just grassy space--but the fortress itself, the actual fortification overlooking the Danube, is more extensive. It's a photogenic place (beautiful view of the Danube, with lots of couples taking selfies)...More

I have recently visited Smederevo Fortress, and strongly recommend visiting it to all travelers interested in history. Approximately 30 miles from Belgrade, Serbia, a medieval Smederevo Fortress was the short-lived capital of Serbia in the Middle Ages (the 15th Century). It was built by Despot...More

Definitely a reason to visit Smederevo. A site of high historical prominence, unfortunately poorly maintained and organized. At a busy day you night happen to line on the staircases that are not well secured.

I went to Smederevo in a weekend getaway. The fortress is one of the main landlines in this town and you should not miss it. Although it is not as big as the Belgrade or Golubac fortresses, Smederevo fortress has its unique charm.

The fortress is huge in surface and very imposing as a sight, but when you actually get to the inner fortress for which an entrance fee is charged, you don't actually see a museum but just an old empty fortress that is not in a...More

I'm sorry, but I have to say that the fortress has a history that is rare in the world, the whole complex is empty and unused. It seems that nobody has the idea of ​​enriching the interior of the fortress with some historical ornaments and...More

The fortress is huge but sadly is generally in a ruinous state. This does mean however that general entrance to the grounds is free. At the top end is the citadel which has been substantially restored and costs 120 dinars entry fee (less than £1)....More
