The first name was Taurunum. The oldest written traces of today’s name of the city date back to the 12th century. It originated from the Sloven word “Zemlin” and it is assumed that the name is related to the city of earth.
Meet the Gardos…
A place where history and enjoyment are intertwined.
Gardoš has become a place for the enjoyment and inspiration of artists and bohemians … Here once lived only fishermen, ships and others whose job was tied to the river, and today is ending with a hedonist in search of a new favorite place. They say that bohemian life moves from Skadarlija to Gardoš.
There is also the oldest preserved Orthodox church in the city – the church of St. Nicholas which was built around 1745.
The tower, which is the most recognizable symbol of Gardoš, was built more than 120 years ago. In order to mark the thousandth anniversary of their stay in Pannonia, the Hungarians raised this and six more monuments at the borders of their then state. The tower was named after the Hungarian hero Janos Hunjadi, who with his army managed to defeat the Turks. He also died on Gardoš, but more than four centuries before building the tower itself.
Nevertheless, this is one of the highest points and certainly the most beautiful viewpoint from which the view of Zemun and Belgrade strikes. Therefore, you should visit the Gardos before sunset and walk to the top of the tower.
