Golubac Fortress

Golubac Fortress is located at the very entrance to Djerdap Gorge, where the Danube is at its widest – over six km. The fortress and its surroundings were recently completely renovated and today it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Serbia. It comprises nine towers that connect the ramparts and the palace, with most of the space being accessible to all visitors. However, only the fittest, accompanied by a guide, can reach certain towers.

The history of the fortress

The fortress was built at the very entrance to Djerdap Gorge, which was the perfect location from which to monitor and control the land and water routes between the east and the west. It is no surprise that many armies have fought for control of the fortress over the centuries.
