Karadjordje’s Park is located on the slopes of western Vračar, in the exact spot where the camp of the main insurgent army of Karadjordje stood in 1806.
During the charge against the Belgrade Fortress and its capture, approximately fifty insurgents were killed. They were carried to the camp and buried there on orders by Karadjordje.
The graves of those killed were marked by their families with stone markers, some of them surviving to this day. The graveyard of the time was located next to the road to Kragujevac. It was fenced off and planted with black locust trees, thus it may be considered to represent the roots of public park construction in Belgrade.
Karadjordje’s son, Prince Alexander, erected a monument in 1848 on the graves of his father’s compatriots. This monument to the Liberators of Belgrade from 1806 represents the first public monument in Belgrade. During the arrangement of the environs various trees were planted, along with an alley of chestnuts. The park was expanded between 1903 and 1907 and an artificial hill was built. The Monument to the Conscripts of the Third Call was presented in 1923 honouring the Serbian soldiers who died during World War I, followed by the monument to Alphonse de Lamartine, the French poet, the monument to the International Brigades in Spain between 1936 and 1939, erected in 1950, as well as the Memorial monument to the victims of the bombing of Belgrade on April 6, 1941, erected in 1975.
