During our journey from Belgrade to Ram, where the first locality is located, we will pass through the beautiful picturesque places of Branicev district.
Our first stop is Ram Fort, a medieval fortress built due to its geostrategic position on the right bank of the Danube. Throughout the centuries, the fort was a guard and controlled the entire land and water route, connecting east and west. There is no reliable information about the time of its origin, but it was first mentioned in the 12th century as a place in which the Byzantine and Hungarian armies clashed. The Ugri, the Byzantines and the Turks invaded Ram.
According to one legend, the Ottoman Empire decided to erect a fort on this site after a visit by the Turkish Sultan Bajazit II, who went on a tour of his troops and lay tired on the rug (ihram) to rest. When he got up he felt reborn. He immediately ordered that a fort be erected at the site of his ihram. Ram Fort was reconstructed and renovated in 2019. During the tour, you will hear the story of its origin and the importance it had for the Ottoman Empire.
It was built on the part of the Danube where it is the widest in its entire course (about 6 km). During the visit, we will visit the fort and hear the story of its origin, as well as the legends about the origin of its name. Otherwise, the fort was completely renovated last year and today visitors can visit it in its entirety.
