This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Belgrade

Your trip will begin with pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Belgrade, and we head toward Eastern Serbia. Two hours ride we’ll spend enjoying the beautiful landscapes and listen to interesting stories about this part of the country.

Stop At: Golubac Fortress

Our first stop is Golubac fortress, a defensive complex which used to defend many kingdoms through centuries. Golubac is the perfect fairy-tale castle, wonderfully set off by its location in the rugged landscape at the head of Đerdap Gorge. There are nine towers in all, each between 20 and 25m high, and combined with the exciting position of the fortress leaning over the Danube; they make Golubac undoubtedly one of the most beautiful castles along the 2850km Danube odyssey from source to the Black Sea.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Danube River

We will proceed with the adventure towards the widest flow Danube river has – the famous Iron Gate. Its sheer size left no one untouched as the Danube suddenly gives the impression of the sea.

Stop At:

After around 30 minutes of driving, we will reach our next stop – Lepenski Vir. The early settlement of the Lepenski Vir was first uncovered in 1965. The works brought to light sacred architecture and monumental sculptures from one of the oldest Danube cultures, dating back to 7,000-6,000 BC, also marking the beginning of civilization in Europe. Here we will see more than 100 items (utensils, tools and instruments, jewelry, altars, sculptures, Neolithic ceramics) illustrating the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods in Lepenski Vir. The setting also involves the reconstruction of burial methods in Lepenski Vir and a holographic reconstruction of houses in Lepenski Vir.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At:

After the museum, we will make a stop in a unique, authentic restaurant with a fantastic view overlooking the Danube to enjoy a traditional lunch made of specialties of the cuisine of Eastern Serbia (not included). We believe that you will have a completely different aspect as we return to Belgrade in the evening hours.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
