What will you see?

  • Fortress of Golubac

  • Ethno House

Golubac fortress was built on steep rock cliffs about 4 kilometers downstream from the city named Golubac, on the right bank of the Danube river at the entrance to the Djerdap canyon.

The beautiful fortress of Golubac is mentioned in several legends. According to one, it got its name thanks to the Byzantine princess Jelena, who was held captive in the tower of the fortress. Even the beautiful view of the Danube could not help lonely and sad Jelena. Only pigeons were giving her hope, as they were coming in and out of the tower, so that’s the reason they named the city Golubacki grad because a pigeon in the Serbian language is “golub”.

Lepenski Vir is one of the largest and most important Mesolithic and Neolithic archaeological finds. It is located on the right bank of the Danube in the Djerdap canyon. This place was one of the most important and the most precious culture spots of prehistory.

You will have the opportunity to enjoy in one unique ethno house, which is located in the heart of the Djerdap canyon.
