The Smederevo Fortress (Serbian: Cмeдepeвcκa твpђaвa / Smederevska tvrđava) is a medieval fortified city in Smederevo, Serbia, which was the temporary capital of Serbia in the Middle Ages. It was built between 1427 and 1430 on the order of Despot Đurađ Branković, the ruler of the Serbian Despotate. It was further fortified by the Ottoman Empire, which had taken the city in 1459.See Smederevo Fortress and all Smederevo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Smederevo tour planner.
The fortress withstood several sieges by Ottomans and Serbs, surviving relatively unscathed. During World War II it was heavily damaged, by explosions and bombing. As of 2009 it is in the midst of extensive restoration and conservation work, despite which the fortress remains "one of the rare preserved courts of medieval Serbian rulers."
Smederevo Fortress was declared a national Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979. In 2010, the fortress was placed on the tentative list for possible nomination as a World Heritage Site (UNESCO).

Easily accessible, well maintained and clean. Friendly staff and employees. Affordable entrance fee. The view from the top of the Fortress is stunning on a clear sunny day.
Large parking lot, unfortunately the access street full of huge holes and damage are the only drawbacks because everything else is perfect. Beautiful New Athletics Track, Friendly Souvenir Sellers And Ticket Sellers. Very clean and tidy. No rubbish or dirt. A beautiful experience. I can recommend everyone and it is a place that is visited many times because a person always discovers something new and beautiful.
