The cruise ship barely fits into the locks.  It is possible to touch the walls of the locks from the boat.

The ship docked near downtown Belgrade.   Overlooking the confluence of the River Sava and Danube River is the old Belgrade Fortress.   It was originally built in 535 AD, but it has been repaired and improved over the years.
