Zemun Overview

Zemun (Земун) used to be a separate town on the banks of Danube, but now is a municipality that is part of the City of Belgrade.
It was established in the 3rd century by a Celtic tribe that used to call it Taurunum. Legend says Zemun was an establishment of craftsmen and fisherman, vegetable and fruit vendors. That’s exactly what visitors will see even today, vibrant market with fresh fish, the best fish restaurants in town, many craftsmen shops in the old part of town.
Architecture wise Zemun is very much a typical town of Vojvodina, the northern province of Serbia. Austro-Hungarian influence is clearly visible in many old buildings in the center, on the Main street (Glavna Ulica).
The highlight of any visit and the highest point of Zemun is the hill called Gardoš. Cobblestone streets lined up with colorful old houses swirl around the hill. On the top stands 36 meters tall Millennium Tower, also known as the Tower of Janko Sibinjanin (Janos Hunyadi), Hungarian general. The tower was built by Hungarians in 1896 to commemorate southern most point of Austro-Hungarian Empire (there are total of 5 across old empire borders). On the hill one finds numerous small hidden taverns with live Serbian music, many galleries, arts and crafts shops, cafe bars, restaurants, clubs. At the foot of the hill there is the famous promenade by the river Danube, lined with excellent restaurants, bars and clubs.
