Venue

The largest national park in Serbia, Djerdap National park (www.npdjerdap.org/en , located in north-eastern Serbia, on the border with Romania, stretches along the right bank of the Danube River, from Golubac fortress to Kladovo. The main feature and attraction is the Djerdap gorge – miraculous Iron Gate, the largest and longest water breakthrough in Europe. The National park is dotted with many natural and cultural values which are included in a special protection programme: Lepenski Vir (the 8,000 year old archaeological site with exceptionally important traces of settlements of the Neolithic man), the Golubac fortress, the Roman fortress Diana in Kladovo, remnants of the road, tables and bridge built during the time of the Roman Emperor Trajan, forest reserves and natural monuments.
Kladovo is a nice little town located on the shore of Danube. There are two natural spring lakes in the very centre of Kladovo. A special attraction is a 1km long city beach on the river Danube. The town is surrounded by beautiful hills, which are well known for their wine yards called “Negotinsko Vinogorje”. Moderate continental climate and a large number of sunny days are characteristic for the region.
