National Park Đerdap
Lepenski vir archeological site - Kovilovo viewpoint - Iron Gates
Đerdap National Park represents the unique natural and cultural-historical heritage of Serbia. From Golubac to Kladovo, the Danube flows through the most beautiful gorge in Europe - the Djerdap gorge. In the geological and morphological sense, this area is a real gem of our planet. The coastal belt of the Danube in the Đerdap gorge has been inhabited since the Neolithic. Many archeological sites testify to the continuity of life in it: starting from the monumental culture of Lepenski Vir (about 9,000 years old) through numerous monuments from the ancient period to medieval fortifications. Djerdap, known in the world as the Iron Gate, is a centuries-old challenge for travelers, traders and soldiers, because that is where the two extremely important cultural and economic worlds of the Middle and Lower Danube come into contact. From ancient times, Djerdap is considered a natural strategic point of great importance both during wars and in peacetime. For these reasons there are a huge number of historical monuments on Djerdap.
