This tour is a scheduled group tour which operates only on Tuesdays, from 15th of April till 31st of October. With this tour you’ll explore the biggest gorge of Europe, you’ll get to know it’s history, natural beauty and local food and people. The description below will give you a solid overview on what you can experience during this day with #YourSerbiaHost on tour.
#YourSerbiaHost will meet you at 9am at meeting point in the center of Belgrade. After two hour drive through the very heart of Braničevo county we reach bank of Danube and town of Golubac in which vicinity lays Golubac fortress. Medieval town is placed at the entrance of Iron Gate and touches Danube waters with part of the walls. Many legends are connected with this fortress and four of them are in relation with its name. There are no reliable data about fortification’s construction date, only assumption that it was built in the 13th century. Only known fact is that there were four different nations ruling over Golubac fortress, Serbs, Turks, Austrians and Hungarians. We will explore fortress surroundings from the newly constructed visitor’s center where you’ll be able to dig into more distant, but also in more recent events and history.
Straight from Golubac we continue down the Danube road and after 30 minutes we arrive to Lepenski vir – the oldest organized settlement in Europe. Settlement was founded around 7000 BC and lasted till 4500 BC when people of Lepenski vir moved on to the world in search of bigger arable land. Archaeological site is in perfect condition and it consists of several parts. Uniqueness of this place, in archaeological sense, is the fact that the whole settlement was moved from its original location retaining absolutely the same items and setup from time when people of Lepenski vir lived there. All items and elements are completely authentic. In the visitor centre there is also a fascinating museum exhibition with objects and human remains found in the village which are exquisitely preserved. Video projection, holographic display, 3D interactive application are additional amenities which will take you millenniums back.
Road takes us further through town of Donji Milanovac towards the prettiest part of Iron Gate, gorges Mali and Veliki kazan. Here you’ll see controversial sculpture of Dacian king Decibel (Decabelus) which was curved in the cliff on the Romanian side of the gorge.
After enjoying the views we stop for deserved lunch break. Best possible place to experience local hospitality, food and charm is Captain Misa’s Hill ethnic complex where kind hosts serve traditional local food in authentic surroundings with most fascinating view.
After lunch we are getting back to Belgrade where we arrive in the evening.
