Kalemegdan is the green heart of Belgrade an ancient fortress and park that provides a respite from the urban buzz of the metropolis and which has been designated a Monument of Culture and Exceptional Importance since 1979. Tucked away within the vegetation of Kalemegdan’s ancient walls is this elegant restaurant, serving an international cuisine. You can feel the weight of the city’s history in this beautiful venue and without argument its greatest asset is the rooftop bar. From here you and your friends can soak up the breathtaking view of the twin rivers of the Sava and the Danube and Belgrade Zoo afforded by its lofty vantage point. It’s a great place for nature-lovers to take photos while sipping on a Turkish coffee served by attentive and efficient staff. The restaurant itself is tastefully designed, spaciously arranged with cream tables and chairs set against a border of flowers and hanging plants. It’s not cheap by local standards and attracts the city’s wealthiest inhabitants along with well-moneyed tourists. The service is quick and the menu offers a variety of indigenous and international dishes from which to choose. The drinks menu has the usual range of spirits and a good choice of wines. But the main reason for coming here remains the stunning view, especially at sunset. As the sky glows burnt orange, order a chilled Serbian beer and find a table. Sit back, take a sip and let the beauty of the place wash over you as day turns into evening.
