Know More about this tour

The tour starts from an arranged place early morning and after two hours drive through the heart of the Branievo county, we reach the bank of Danube and the town of Golubac, close to the Golubac fortress. This Medieval town is placed at the entrance of Iron Gate and touches Danube waters with part of its walls. Many legends are connected to this fortress and four of them are in relation to its name. There is no reliable data about the fortifications construction date, only assumption that it was built in the 13th century. The only known fact is that there were four different nations ruling over Golubac fortress, Serbia, Turkey, Austria and Hungary.

Straight from Golubac we continue down the Danube road and after 30 minutes we arrive to Lepenski vir the oldest organized settlement in Europe. The settlement was founded around 7000 BC and lasted till 4500 BC when people of Lepenski vir moved on in search of bigger arable land. The archaeological site is in perfect condition and it consists of several parts. Uniquene of this place, is the fact that the whole settlement was moved from its original location retaining absolutely the same items and set-up from the 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.

Continue the tour through the town of Donji Milanovac, towards the prettiest part of Iron Gate, gorges Mali and Veliki kazan. For the fit ones, we can arrange a climb to Ploe viewpoint, from which you have fascinating views towards the Iron Gate. This is the place where all famous photos of the gorge were taken.

After walking and enjoying the views we stop for a deserved lunch break. Best possible place to experience local hospitality, food and charm is Captains Misa Hill ethno complex where kind hosts serve traditional local food in authentic surroundings with the most fascinating view.

After lunch we will go back to Belgrade where we arrive in the evening.
