Tour description:

We start from Novi Sad at 7:00 and from Belgrade at 8.30 am and after an hour’s drive reach Smederevo whose huge fortress has been the last medieval capital of Serbia. Nowadays the fortress is one of the largest on the Danube and among the most important in Serbia.

After the visit we head for Kostolac where we will visit the archeological site of Viminacium, once an important Roman town, the capital of the province of Upper Moesia. Apart from the ruins and ancient tombs we will also see the skeletons of many mammoths found during the excavation.  

Our journey continues to Srebrno Jezero Lake where we will have free time that you can use for lunch in one of the local restaurants, a swim in the lake or both.

After the break we drive to the castle of Ram. Following our visit we will cross the Danube by a ferryboat. On the other side, next to the tiny village of Stara Palanka we see the confluence of Nera into the Danube together with Labudovo Okno ornithological reserve.

Next we will drive on the southern fringes of Deliblatska Peščara sands, once a real desert shaped by winds and today partially tamed by forestification, a habitat for many rare animal and plant species. Our last break will be with a family that left Belgrade to enjoy the peace and wilderness of the sands.

Return to Belgrade in the evening hours.
