Description

The forest-park and picnic grounds of Košutnjak extend over a surface of 330 hectares, at an altitude of 250 m above sea level.

The forest of deciduous and evergreen trees is crisscrossed by numerous footpaths. Košutnjak was likely named after does (“košuta”), once present in the forest. The thick forest was a closed palace hunting ground until 1903, when it was opened to the public.

 Košutnjak contains two specially arranged complexes: the sports and recreation centre “Pioneer City” and the Film City with a complex of ateliers and other facilities and devices for film production. The Košutnjak Sports Centre contains courts for football, athletic competitions, volleyball, basketball, handball, five open and one closed swimming pool. Both summer and winter ski slopes operate on Košutnjak for winter sports enthusiasts. The Hajdučka česma drinking fountain is located at the foot of the hill, where the hunting grounds of the Obrenović family once stood. The “Košutnjak” Camp, “Trim” Hotel and the restaurants “Košuta”, “Golf”, “Devetka”, “Filmski grad” and “Panorama” are also located on Košutnjak.
