Gardoš Tower


Gardoš Tower or Millennium Tower, also known as Kula Sibinjanin Janka (English: The Tower of Janos Hunyadi), is a memorial tower located in Zemun. It was built and officially opened on 20 August 1896 to celebrate a thousand years of Hungarian settlement in the Pannonian plain.

As part of Old Town core of Zemun, and also located in the middle of the Zemun Fortress, tower is protected both as Spatial Cultural-Historical Unit of Great Importance, and as a Protected Monument of Culture.

The tower was built as a combination of various styles, mostly influenced by the Roman elements. The tower is 36 m (118 ft) tall and, being a natural lookout, it was used by Zemun’s firemen for decades. Today, the tower is better known after the Janos Hunyadi, who actually died in the old fortress, 440 years before the tower was built.
