First of them is Roman well, built in 18th century, which represents heritage from Austrian time. Alfred Hickok was amazed with the well, you will see why. The tour continues to Army bunker - from the time of the Cold War after the World War 2, where you will learn about some of the President Tito's political games between great countries. The third stop is Gunpowder warehouse - where you will have the chance to touch the walls of the cave which Austrians built as the part of the fortress which served as the defense of Christian Europe against Turkish Empire. This warehouse is also an exhibition place where you will see sarkophaguses and altars collected from different archeological sites on Serbian territory.
