Dear travelers, in the text below you can find useful information why you should visit these particular places and what you can expect from this road trip. Nature in Serbia is still not discovered by many tourists. This trip will bring you to all this magical locations . We want you to discover the best natural gems in Serbia. The more information about Serbia's biggest cities you can find on this cities in Serbia page.
Meet Djerdap National Park
Nature and time combine in one of the most beautiful national parks in Europe with one of the oldest geologic histories.
What this trip makes so special and unique is visit of remarkable Djerdap National Park which is located in the northeastern part of Serbia, on the border with Romania. Along the Danube's right bank, on a 100 kilometer stretch from Golubac Fort to castrum Diana Karatas, the National Park encompasses a narrow forested mountain area, two to eight kilometers in width, reaching 50 to 800 meters above sea level.
An important element of historical and cultural identity of the National Park is diverse and valuable immovable cultural heritage, with abundant architectural trails and remains of fortifications at the river banks of the Danube dating from Roman and early Byzantine period – remains of Roman Limes on the Danube, medieval necropolis and human settlements. Top sites: Golubac Fort, Lepenski Vir, Trajan's Tablet and viewpoints.
Lepenski Vir is the name of the great whirlpool in the middle of Djerdap and the nearby horseshoe-shaped shelf between the right bank of the Danube and the steep cliffs of the Korsho hill.
One of the most important archaeological sites in Serbia and Europe is located on a terrace by the Danube, in the Djerdap Gorge. Archaeological excavations in the 1960s uncovered valuable findings, sacred architecture and monumental sculptures from 7000 to 6000 BC which changed the global notion of the beginnings of civilization. Personal response depends on the viewer's thoughts and values individually.
Beneath layers of settlements of early farmers and cattle breeders from the period 5300–4800 BC, seven layers of successive settlements of hunters, fishermen and gatherers were discovered, built upon one another.
Lepenski Vir stands out upon the map of prehistoric Europe: for its methodically planned architecture and for its diverse sculptures. In the latter, the site has suddenly assumed an importance for which the epithet 'unique' might be acceptable. 'Lepenski Vir art' enters the world's art-history substantially in its own right and without convincing parentage.

Adopted from: " New Discovery at Lepenski Vir" by Dragoslav Srejovich and Official website of National Park Djerdap.

The sculptures fall into three groups:
strongly marked representations of human heads occasionally with somewhat fish-like features but little or no indication of the body;
seemingly non-representation arabesques or abstracts; and aniconic or semi-iconic forms, describable sometimes as 'omphaloi'.
The Eco-ethno complex "Kapetan Misin breg" is located in the heart of the Djerdap gorge
While enjoying the enchanting views of the Djerdap gorge you may try culinary specialties - traditionally prepared dishes of the Vlach cuisine. Specialties like homemade bread, fried nettles, corn bread, cheese, lamb, chicken barbecue. All that in combination with homemade wine, honey brandy or elder juice, will make your stay unforgettable. Within the compound you will find an open air gallery called "Man, wood, water," which is a collection of sculptures made of wood and stone. Also on the grounds at "Kapetan Misin breg" is a wine museum, opened in 2013. Inside you will find an impressive collection of top domestic and international wines. If you bring a bottle of wine with you, you can put it away and it will wait for you next time you visit!
Second star of our "6 Days" adventure is certainly National Park Tara. Mountain Tara belongs to internal Dinarides and it is part of Serbian Vlach mountains. It is located In the far west of Serbia in encompassing area bounded by the Drina River between Visegrad and Bajina Basta. Thick greenery all around, richness of fragrant forests, glades and views, meadow carpet, "the lungs of Serbia" – this is Tara Mountain and its national park, a real beauty among the heights, an ideal place for rest and recovery.
Viewpoints in the National Park Tara are the most attractive touristic points and the best way to experience the park. They are countless, and most of them are hardly accessible, but the most beautiful, fortunately can be easily accessed. There are five sites equipped and safe for tourists - Crnjeskovo, Oslusa, Banjska stena, Sjenic (Vitmirovac), Biljeska stena. From these points you will see beautiful and memorable panoramas.
You will visit Wooden Town also known Küstendorf and Mecavnik. It is a traditional village that the Serbian film director Emir Kusturica built for his film entitled "Life is a Miracle". Because of the Wooden Town, Kusturica was the 2005 recipient of the Philippe Rotthier European Architecture award. The Wooden Town has a library, an artist gallery, Stanley Kubrick Cinema; a main house which houses a cinema-hall in the cellar, a living room, a guest room, a closed yard, a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a sauna and private rooms for the Kusturica family; a sports hall; a restaurant; a cake shop, as well as a souvenir shop; and finally, a Church dedicated to St. Sava.

“I was looking with envy at Mecavnik - a hill without anything on it, but as it seemed to me, with plenty of sunshine."
Next interesting stop is Sargan Eight. It is one of the most attractive tourist museum type of railway in the world, a unique construction masterpiece of narrow-gauge heritage railway in Serbia, running from the village of Mokra Gora to the Sargan Vitasi station. An extension to Visegrad in the Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, was finished on August 28th, 2010. The former East Bosnian railway with a gauge of 760 mm (2 ft 5 15⁄16 in) was an important part of the former narrow-gauge main line from Sarajevo to Belgrade and closed in 1974. Between 1999 and 2003 the section over the Sargan pass was rebuilt by the Serbian Ministry of Tourism and the Yugoslav State Railway (now the Serbian Railways), with great help from Emir Kusturica. Nowadays, travelers have the chance to go on an amazing train ride around the mountains in the Sargan Eight, so do we!
Smederevo fortress - water trench
Smederevo fortress we visit on the way to Djerdap National park. It represents the highest achievement of medieval Serbian military architecture. In the accomplishment of its construction are collected many centuries of experience, skill and knowledge of native and Byzantine artisans, but also all anxiety and hope, weariness and waiving, joy and faith of all those who endured main burden of its construction. Although it had been conceived according to the highest fortification standards of that time it became obsolete already during its construction because of the introduction of gun powder in war technique. Neither Serbian, nor Turkish interventions including construction of gun openings and towers did help much in its modernization.
When despot Djuradj Branković started construction of the new capital of medieval Serbia, he wanted to create modern capital city and not just the safe military stronghold. In the course of time Smederevo fortress got all important elements characteristic of the large medieval city. For rather short period Smederevo became vibrant political, religious, cultural, commercial and economic center of Serbia. Therefore, considering the circumstances of its foundation, concept and notions of that time much more appropriate should be the term Smederevo city instead of common term Smederevo fortress. Unfortunately, historical circumstances contributed to the fact that main idea was only partially realized in the first three decades of its existence (1428-1459). In the later history, Smederevo never had such important role as it had been planned in the beginning.
Vratna Gates or Prerasts of Vratna
are three natural stone bridges, two in the vicinity of the medieval Vratna monastery and the third farther away into the depths of the Vratna river gorge in Bor. They are entered through marked hiking trails, which was through monastic property. Visiting this spots is a great mixture of hike and enjoyment in peaceful surroundings.
