Underground secrets and dungeons of Belgrade fortress
Underground secrets and dungeons of Belgrade fortress
Tour Description

Venture through underground chambers and well guarded military secrets of one of the largest forts in Europe, the Belgrade Fortress. We’ll set foot in the Roman well, whose eerie atmosphere ticked even the imagination of great Alfred Hitchcock. A Cold war military bunker, hidden from public eye until recently, shows the danger of Yugoslavia’s leader Tito attempts to balance between two world powers. In the Casemates under the Military museum we will witness a dark side of the human psyche, showcased by a collection of medieval torture instruments. Deep under the rock of Pobednik plateau we’ll visit the Great gunpowder magazine, with its hall decorated by stone Roman artifacts.

In the end, an optional visit to Nebojša tower, built in XV century to defend the city against the Ottoman threat, only to be made into an infamous Ottoman dungeon three centuries later.
