On January 28, 2009 Serbia issued this 55 dinar, tourism-themed stamp (Mi #276) depicting Kalemegdan or Belgrade fortress, which was first constructed by the Romans.

From Serbia.com, "The Belgrade fortress, built on a white ridge above the (confluence of the Sava and Danube) Rivers, destroyed and rebuilt over and over for 16 centuries, still stands as a symbol of Serbia's capital."

Photo shows panoramic view of the fortress complex from the river.
