The warship from the time of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy arrived at the port in front of the Parliament over the weekend, where it will be open until the end of October.

You can visit the Lajta Monitor Museum Ship again
Those interested can take a look at the museum ship and also see the weapons on board.
 
Lajta was launched on May 17, 1871, and on December 8, 1876, he and his sister ship, together with the Maros monitor, had a fire duel with the then Turkish-held fortress of Belgrade. The ship was also deployed several times during World War I. It was dismantled in 1918, after 47 years of military service, and was used as a “elevator ship” in river gravel dredging from the 1920s to 1994, for more than 70 years. By 2010, the former Austro-Hungarian warship had been reconstructed in its original condition. The Lajta is the only restored monitor ship floating on water in the world. From 2014, every year from spring to autumn, it anchors on the north side of the Parliament.
