Golubac Fortress is a medieval fortified town on the south side of the Danube River. Step back in time as you enter the gates of the Fortress, a medieval masterpiece guarding the entrance to Djerdap Gorge. Marvel at its formidable walls, strategic position, and rich historical significance.
Prepare to be spellbound by the natural wonder that is Djerdap Gorge. As the Danube carves its way through towering cliffs and lush greenery, you’ll be left in awe of its inspiring beauty. There is a possibility for an optional boat ride along the river around the Golubac fortress (April – October, around 45 min), witnessing the sheer grandeur of Europe’s longest and most captivating gorge. Be sure to keep your camera ready, as every bend reveals a new vista more breathtaking than the last.
Spreading at over 63,000 acres of plant and animal abundance of priceless value and beauty, Đerdap National Park is also known as the Iron Gates of the Danube. Gorges, canyons, river valleys, and over a thousand caves of extraordinary beauty are hidden on the right bank of the river, from the Golubac fortress to the ancient fort of Diana.
The deepest, largest, and most attractive gorge in Europe consists of four gorges of imposing beauty: Golubac, Gospođin Vir, Kazan, and Sipska. However, the most interesting and geomorphologically specific landscapes are the areas of Štrpce, as well as the areas of Great and Small Kazan, where the Danube demonstrates its narrowest (140m) and deepest (90m) points.
