Security has been beefed up with the largest park in Belgrade covering more than 60 hectares.

It has been under state protection since 1946 and will now be additionally protected with more than 67 cameras that can monitor 20 cultural monuments and more than 2,450 trees.

Physical safety is required at Kalamegdan because an average of fifteen thefts per season are prevented and fifty interventions are prevented due to violations of public order and peace.

– The cameras will be installed and activated by the end of the year, which means we are now about 80 percent rough on the job. These are big jobs and it is important that the work goes in line with the planned dynamics – said Simona Stankovic JP Belgrade Fort.

67 high resolution cameras will be installed at 64 locations with the aim of recording and punishing those who destroy forts, sit on forts, drop graffiti and steal statues. The worst damage was in May 2020 when a second-century Roman statue was damaged in Barutana.

– We need to allow that, and we think we can achieve the most efficient way by installing cameras or video surveillance, because it costs money to remove each monument and graffiti. Our security is there, it works 365 days a year, but there are things that can not be prevented because we do not charge for entry to the castle – Simona Stankovic, PE Belgrade Fort, pointed out.

The authorities claim that Kalemegdan will be a safe place not only for tourists but for all Belgraders, but they will always keep it in their heart even when they do not go there often.

The first money to arrange Kalamegdan was given to Nicola Pass, then 10,000 dinars, and the city has now set aside 52 million dinars for video surveillance, so future generations will visit Kalamegdan.
