 Tourist attractions

Zemun is a place with 7000 years of history, which wrote many stories and kept its authenticity. It is situated on the confluence of the rivers Sava and Danube, on the southeastern part of Srem. Its first name was Tauranum, and the oldest written record of city’s present-day name dates back to the 12th century. It is known as bohemian and artistic part of the city, whose museums, restaurants, cultural and historical monuments are a must-see. Some of the biggest tourist attractions are Gardoš Tower, Zemunskikej (Eng. Promenade of Zemun), Great War Island, Nikolajevska Church, “BeliMedved” (Eng. The White Bear) tavern…

Gardoš tower was built in 1896. by the Hungarian authorities to celebrate the millennial anniversary of Hungarian statehood, and later became the symbol of Zemun. Amazing view from this place will take your breath away and you will remember it forever. What is particularly interesting is that this tower is 36 m tall.

Great War Island represents an oasis of pure nature, and the sandy beach “Lido”, on its western part,is one of the favorite summer places of people from Belgrade. If you are looking for a corner away from the urban area, choose this place to enjoy and reinvigorate.

“The White Bear” tavern is the oldest house in Zemun (about 4 centuries old) and is the only preserved example of Balkan architecture in this part of the city.

Zemunski kej (Promenade of Zemun) is the pearl of Zemun and the favorite place of its inhabitants. It is situated on the right shore of the Danube and represents an ideal area for fun, relaxation and family rest. You can enjoy every day in the walk, bike ride, a pleasant drink or meal by the river, and the positive atmosphere of the promenade will fill you with additional energy.

One of the most beautiful parts of Zemun is also the City Park with tree alley more than 150 years old whose paths will lead you and fill you with peace in the pure nature that surrounds them. There you can see a Roman sarcophagus, more than 2m long, found while digging the foundations of the Millennial Tower in Gardoš.

We recommend to the theatre and opera lovers to visit Madlenianum, the first private opera, and theatre in the region, located on the place of the former Zemun’s stage of the National Theatre. You can find modern, as well as classic plays in the theatre’s repertoire.

We recommend also to include in your travel list the new “Memorial Museum of Zemun”, galleries “Stara kapetanija” (Eng. Old Harbormaster’s office) and “Icarus”, as well as cultural events like Summer in Gardoš, Summer on the Promenade, Summer on Lido, Zemun International Salon of Caricature, International Festival of Monodrama and Mime and Tesla’a Day.
