Kosutnjak, a park-forest and city resort in Belgrade, is situated at an altitude of 250 meters and covers an area of 330 hectares.

Until 1903, the forest was a closed hunting ground belonging to the court, and later Kostunjak was opened to the public.

It is assumed that it was named named after a large number of deer that once lived there.

At the very foot of the former hunting ground is Hajducka Cesma (Hajduk's Fountain), which was built at the end of the 18th century.

Because it is rich in trees, Kosutnjak is often referred to as "Belgrade's lungs."

Athletes and recreationists like to come to this part of the city to train, play tennis, basketball, volleyball or football, and ski in the winter.

Children particularly like those parts of Kosutnjak where they can go sledding.
