What to Expect from the Ram, Golubac and Smederevo Fortress Tour in 2023/2024
Expect to unearth the history, majesty, and natural beauty of Serbia on this incredible tour. Whether you’re a history enthusiast or someone who simply appreciates a nice day out, this journey has something for everyone. You’ll also drive through an unusual Silver Lake resort, built by “Gastarbeiters” at the oxbow lake.
Your adventure begins as #YourSerbiaHost picks you up from your hotel in the morning, typically around 9 am. Our first stop is the captivating Ram Fortress, nestled on the banks of the Danube. As you wander through its ancient walls and towers, you’ll be transported back in time, absorbing tales of its historical significance. This recently renovated fortress is yet to be discovered by travelers, so be one the first to explore this still secret gem.
Next, we’ll journey to Golubac Fortress or Golubac Castle as often referred to, a 13th-century gem guarding the entrance to the Iron Gates. While exploring its towers and passages, you’ll gain a profound appreciation for its historical importance and architectural splendor. Both the town and the fortress overlook the widest point of Danube on its entire stretch. Note that the fortress is closed on Mondays, so if you book the tour for a Monday, we can only take a short photo stop beside the road.
The tour culminates at Smederevo Fortress, one of Europe’s largest and most impressive medieval fortresses. As you explore the last capital of medieval Serbia, you’ll be immersed in the stories of its past and its pivotal role in Serbian history. Here you’ll learn about the reasons why the fortified city was built on this particular location.
