Golubac fortress

 

Golubac Fortress was a medieval fortified town on the south side of the Danube River, 4 km downstream from the modern-day town of Golubac, Serbia. The fortress, which was most likely built during the 14th century, was split into three compounds which were built in stages. It has ten towers, most of which are  square shaped, and several of which received multifaceted reinforcements with the advent of firearms.

Djerdap gorge

Spreading at over 63,000 acres of plant and animal abundance of priceless value and beauty, Đerdap National Park is also known as the Iron Gates of the Danube. Gorges, canyons, river valleys and over thousand caves of extraordinary beauty are hidden on the right bank of the river, from the Golubac fortress to the ancient fort of Diana.

The deepest, largest and most attractive gorge in Europe consists of four gorges of imposing beauty: Golubac, Gospođina Vira, Kazan and Sipska. However, the most interesting and geomorphological specific landscapes are the areas of Štrpce, as well as the areas of Great and Small Kazan, where the Danube demonstrates its narrowest (140m) and deepest (90m) points.

Lepnski vir

Lepenski Vir represents the remains of the oldest settlement in Europe. The first organized human settlement in the open was located in Djerdap, and it was founded eight thousand years ago. The peaceful "Lepenski" Alas carefully chose this location, and formed a culture there that lasted for two thousand years in a row, in the period 6500-4500. BC. The Lepenski Vir site was discovered during extensive excavations in Djerdap due to the construction of the Djerdap I hydroelectric power plant. In 2011, a new visitor center was opened, which preserves the remains of a culture under its dome, which astonished the whole world with its discovery...
