Zemun Tips (21)

Zemun

One of the best things we did in Belgrade was to take the bus (15 or 84) to Zemun. Once (before 1934) a separate town it is now a lovely suburb of general Belgrade area.
Located on the right bank of the river Danube it’s a picturesque small town with small narrow cobblestone streets, nice architecture and historic buildings.

First we walked up to Gardos hill for the 36m high Millennium Tower (Sibinjanin Janko ) (pic 2) that opened in 1896 and houses a small gallery with photographs at the ground floor while going up to first floor there’s an observation dick where you will have some beautiful panoramic view of Zemun, Danube and Belgrade(pic 1).

Then we walked into the town (pic 3), checked some churches, the most interesting one was St.Nicholas Orthodox church (pic 4) that was built in 1731 in baroque style but check also the Catholic church of Blessed Virgin Mary which was also built in baroque style that was built upon a former mosque. There are also many squares, one of them (Veliki trg) next to the catholic church houses a large green market. We also wanted to visit Zemun Museum at Glavna street but it was under renovation.

Then we went down to the river. The promenade is lined with numerous riverside café and restaurants that focus more on fish dishes than traditional Sebrian specialities. For us it was a great place to have breakfast on a lovely sunny morning. After that we decided to walk along the river up to Belgrade, it was a long way but we did it slowly and enjoyed it, many locals take a walk there (pic 5) there with kids, bicycles, people sell corn or ice cream, while street artists (painters, musicians) give their own tone There were playgrounds, benches to relax and the popular floating (splav) restaurants along the way, we stopped at some of them for some beer breaks :)

Zemun

It is an old neighbourhood on the Denube. Actually it used to be a town about 100 years ago but it’s already part of the capital. It is known for many small squares. On one of them there is an open green market. The bank of the Danube is turned into Zemunski Kej (Pier), long alley with various entertainment facilities along it, including cafes, restaurants, amusement park, etc. There is a tower, build in 1896. The idea was to celebrate 1000 years of Hungarian settlement in the Pannonian plain. The tower is known as the tower of Janos Hunyadi who actually died in the old fortress four and a half centuries before the tower was built.

Zemun walk

Get away from the chaos of Belgrade's city centre for a bit with a short trip out to Zemun. Being close to the river, there's a nice stroll to be had along the banks before or after seeing the town itself. Zemunians consider themselves a separate entity from Belgradians apparantly, as the town has gradually grown into a 'suburb' of the city itself. There are the usual street cafes and shopping streets as well as the riverside restaurants and cafes (see my Restaurant Tip)

Gardos Tower

Walking around the gardos and its small streets is very special experience. On the highest part of Gardos you can see remains of medieval fortification and Millennium monument.
Medieval fortification was built in the 14th century at the place of the former one, which was noticed back in 11th century.
Millennium monument ( Tower ) was built in 1896, in the name of 1000th anniversary of Hungarian reign.
From this place, you can see beautiful view all over the Zemun, Belgrade and Danube.

Gardos Hill And More

Gardos Hill with its medieval fort is the oldest part of Zemun. The complex of narrow curved streets on and under the hill is realy nice for stroling around. Worth visiting is the Baroque Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas from 1731 as well as the Roman Chatolic Church of the Blessed Virgin that dates roughly from same period.

Zemun

In my opinion Zemun is must see when visiting Belgrade.
It is completely different as it was town of its own before it was incorporated within Belgrade in 20th c. As a metter of fact, it has an Ausro-Hungarian herritage while Belgrade has the lots of features that indicate Turkish influence. The Danube promenade is nice place to walk or relax in one of the picturesque cafe or restazrant.
Glavna (Main) Street is the heart of Zemun center along with the pedestrian zone in Gospodska street and Pobeda (Victor) Square. This part of Zemun bear the marks of the Central Europian arhitecture.

Zemun

Zemun is a city within a city. At some point in history Zemun was actually a separate city from Belgrade but it later joined with Belgrade and became one of its boroughs. The people of Zemun still like to think that they live in a separate city but we all know that its not true :-P
Anyway, its a really nice place to spend the day, walk along the danube shore and relax.
