GARDOŠ TOWER or MILLENNIUM MONUMENT ,was erected in 1896. within the confines of the castle,the only medieval structure in old Zemun.The Hungarians wanted to mark their thousand-year statehood and their possession of these areas with this observatory tower.Zemun residents immediately started calling it Sibinjanin's Janko Tower (or János Hunyadi's on Hungarian).Legend said that János Hunyadi died on this place though there is no historical explanation for this.
