The Gardoš Tower

Kula nakula gardos 300x168 The Gardoš TowerThe Gardoš Tower, a visual and historical symbol of Zemun, is also famous as the Sibinjanin Janko’s Tower or “Millennium Tower”.
According to the legend in this tower died famous Hungarian hero from the battles against the Turkish soldiers, Janoš Hunyadi, known as Sibinjanin Janko as well and after him the tower got its name. However, history refutes the legend and shows how truly Hunyadi died just at that point, within the Zemun fortress but even 440 years before building the tower.

According to the logic and most convincing theory, the name “Millennium Tower” is the most correct one. Specifically, the tower is evidently built the Hungarians (the construction was completed on August 5, 1896.) as a symbol of his present in Pannonia. Moreover, it was built in total 5 identical buildings: one on the far north, west, east and south (in Zemun) border of its empire, and one central one in Budapest. Except the tower in Budapest, it is preserved the Zemun Tower till today too.
