From Belgrade: Golubac Fortress and Iron Gate Gorge Tour

1. From Belgrade: Golubac Fortress and Iron Gate Gorge Tour

Drive along the winding Danube river on this day trip from Belgrade. Explore the Golubac fortress and discover the oldest Mesolithic sculptures in all of Europe with a visit to the Lepenski Vir museum. Start with pickup from your accommodation and a 2-hour drive toward Eastern Serbia. Take in beautiful landscapes and listen to interesting stories about this part of the country. Stop at 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. Admire its nine towers which are 20-25 meters high. Gaze out at views of the Danube from the fortress. Proceed towards the widest part of the Danube at the Iron Gate. Watch at the Danube suddenly gives the impression of the sea. After around 30 minutes of driving, reach the next stop, Lepenski Vir. The early settlement dates back to 7,000-6,000 BC. It marks the beginning of civilization in Europe. View a holographic reconstruction of houses in Lepenski Vir. 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. After the museum, 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. Return to Belgrade in the evening hours.

Me and my wife booked the tour and all information about tour was very clear. Our tour guide Konstantin was very informative and having good knowledge about the places we covered plus history of Serbia. This tour is worth visiting and recommended for those who loves history, nature and long rides . Traditional lunch is must try.
