Belgrade, Serbia - Secrets in the underground world

Belgrade,tunnels,hidden secrets underground

Over the centuries, attackers and defenders have carved a vast network of underground tunnels, fortifications, storage areas, command posts and bunkers beneath Belgrade. Now it was time to take a closer look.

Photo. The Belgrade fortress and souroundings hides many secrets underground. It is built on a white ridge above the confluence of two big rivers, destroyed and rebuilt over and over for 16 centuries, still stands as the symbol of Serbia’s capital.

During my stay from 4th to 7th May 2017 I wanted to follow the country`s paths of the history underground.

It was real nice taking a tour to Upper and Lower Town of the Belgrade fortress and stroll through the Kalemegdan park. In the shadow of high towers I felt the spirit of history that is still alive in this place. The “Victor” monument – victor over time, oversees the rivers and guards the river banks. What I found more interesting was the hidden secret underground. In Belgrade's more than 1,000-year history, Celts, Romans, Huns, Slavic tribes, Byzantines, Hungarians, Ottoman Turks, Serbs, Austro-Hungarians and Germans have tried to dominate the strategically important confluence of rivers Sava and Danube, considered to be the gateway to Europe.

Underground Belgrade usually comes to light only during construction when heavy machinery breaks through the brick walls or limestone caverns, sometimes even exposing waterways dating back to Roman domination of the Balkans.
