Zemun is cutely situated on the right bank of the mighty Danube, and it has territorial, cultural, economic and traffic ties with Belgrade being its part since 1934.
In the 1st century AD the Romans made the fortress here, and later on the Slavs came, then there were wars between Hungary and Byzantium, destructions by the Turks who then lost the city to Eugene of Savoy, and after that the Habsburg Monarchy ruled over the city for 200 years. Throughout its history, Zemun changed its name several times. The Celts named it Taurunum, then it was named Mallevilla (“the evil city” in the chronicle of Albert of Aachen, the chronicle writer of the First Crusade), and Semlin, which is the Austrian name, and Zimony, the Hungarian name.
Gardos (the Hungarian name), the best known part of Zemun, lives today in the same atmosphere as in the past. Its main feature in curvy streets are small, ground-floor houses, with  rammed-earth buildings still preserved here and there, and two cultural sites – St. Nicholas Church and the remnants of Middleage fortress with the Millenium Tower, one of five such towers on the borders of the then Hungarian state, which was subsequently named by the citizens the Tower of Sibinjanin Janko. The names of the surrounding streets were also spontaneously created – Visoka (High str.), Stara
(Old Str.), Strma (Steep Str.). Gardoš also is the most beautifull painting motif of Zemun. It is worthwhile taking a close look at it, climbing up to the Tower of Sibinjanin Janko,
the point from which one can have a magnificent view of the whole city of Zemun,
the Danube and Belgrade.
St Nicholas Church is the oldest preserved church in Zemun. It was built in the period from 1745 to 1752 in Baroque style. It has one of the most valuable iconostases.
The Church of Virgin Mary
, 1870, was built by the Serbs, Cincars, and Greeks, and the Catholic Church was finished 15 years later. The Holly Trinity Church in the Upper town was built in 1842. The Catholic St Roch Church and the Orthodox
St. Archangel Gabriel Church
are located on the territory of Kontumac quarantine zone, where a part of the defense wall and a memorial column keep memory of the French writer and Statesman Alfons Lamartin, who went through quarantine here on his way back from Serbia.
On the very mouth of Sava into Danube the Great War Island is located, known from the ancient time as significant military-strategic point of conquer or defense of Belgrade. This is today one of the most beautiful natural bird preserve, favorable place of nature fans, it  was mentioned for the first time in the beginning of XVI century. After the First World War on the north side toward Zemun the famous sand beach Lido is located, becoming one of the most beautiful river beaches in Europe. During the summer season, tens of thousands of Zemun inhabitants visit the beach, finding there world of silence and romance lost long ago.
The old Zemun is the soul of tourism in Belgrade, Gardos hill, on 112 m above sea level, proclaimed the monument of culture, presents the picturesque part of Zemun with a special atmosphere and environmental value. According to narration Gardos has been a settlement of fisherman, small craftsman and hawkers and it was founded during the second half of XVIII century.  The shore fortress along Danube was built in 1886-1889, the streng-thened embankments and promenades, with the arranged greenery and numerous restaurants and rafts became the favorable meeting place of the inhabitants of Zemun and their guests. Smell of fish soup, sound of guitar and song of local fishermen are some of the ways to escape from city jam and enjoy in charms of mighty Danube. In some of the numerous terraces of the raft-restaurants, try the delicious fish specialties with a glass of a good red wine and relax with ritmic sound of Danube waves. Zemun have the appearance of yesterday, everything is happening in easy, released and to a stranger pleasant manner.”
