Tour description:

Departure from Novi Sad by bus at 6. 30 AM from the parking lot in front of the Hotel Sajam (nearby the former Gold Medal restaurant); departure from New Belgrade at 8. 00 AM (at Skate Park across from the Usce Mall near the Branko Bridge).

Follows a two-hour bus ride to the medieval Golubacka fortress. Visiting the Visitor Center and the promenade.  Otherwise, this mighty fortress from the 15th century was proclaimed a cultural monument of exceptional importance.  As you know, the Golubačka Fortress has recently been completely restored and is considered one of the most beautiful and preserved fortresses in Europe!

For an extra charge of only 250 dinars, you’ll be able to see the interior of the Fortress and visit the Lower Town, through which you’ll be guided by a local tourist guide. After visiting the fortress, we continue our bus journey towards Donji Milanovac.

Upon arrival in Donji Milanovac, you’ll have lunch at a beautiful restaurant called the Captain Mišin Hil (at about 12. 30 PM), where you’ll be able to taste famous Vlach delicacies. On this, according to most tourists the most beautiful vantage point, you’ll enjoy the spectacular view of the Danube River and the cozy atmosphere of this amazing space.

Follows a one-hour bus ride to Tekije. There we’ll embark on a boat and begin an hour and a half long cruise to Djerdap Gorge, the deepest gorge in Europe and the largest National park in Serbia! We’ll sail through Mali Kazan (between which the water is incredible 90 meters deep!). You’ll see ancient signal stations, King Decebal's head on the Romanian side, as well as the famous Trajan's Plaque on the Serbian side which can’t be seen other way than from the water.

After the cruise is over, we head to the Lepenski Vir, the oldest archeological site in Europe if not in the World! This locality was the seat of one of the most important Neolithic cultures who lived in the area 9.500 years ago! This settlement is older than the Pyramids of Giza (2. 560 BC) or any other known ancient city (Jerusalem, Beirut, Damascus, and Aleppo in Syria, Biblos in Lebanon). Numerous scientific studies have confirmed that this place is actually the cradle of the European civilization.

The return to Belgrade is scheduled for about  9.00 PM and in Novi Sad about 10.30 PM. 

Note: There’s the possibility to change the order of the program – you can first to go on a cruise and then to lunch.
