Good history but not much to see

Given the history of the fortress it is amazing that it is still there, but the whole site lacked posted information or explanation of the fortress's purpose. Beyond the wall is a large garden perfect for a restful stop (we saw many young couples and a br

Skull Tower

It dates from a time when Ottoman soldiers were growing increasingly tired of Serb rebellions against their rule. After quelling one such uprising in 1809, Ottoman troops decapitated 952 fallen Serbs and built the short, square tower out of the Serbs' heads. While the Ottomans intended it to serve as a warning to the local population, within a few years the Serbs had managed to rid their lands of the Ottoman occupiers, and they preserved the Skull Tower as a memorial to the sacrifice of the early Serb nationalists.
