Smederevo fortress: medieval Serbian capital from the XV century, built during the reign of despot Djuradj Branković at the mouth of Jezava into Danube. Consists of Small and Big Town.

All the troubles and hardship regarding the building of the castle were atributed to Djuradjs wife, Jerina Kantakuzin (Kantakuzins from Thesaloniki) that people, thinking the town was built on her wish, called damned Jerina. It is under the protection of the state as an cultural-historical monument. It is located on the area of almost 10,5 ha.

Viminacium: Roman fortress, at the mouth of Mlava to Danube, capital of Upper Mesia, destroyed and ravaged by the Hun king Atila in the V century, and renewed in the VI century by the Roman Emperor Iustinian. The most significant remains of the town are on the right bank of Mlava, where the settlement and the military camp were, built in the second half of the 1. century. Small settlements of merchants and craftsmen were formed near the camp.

Ram: the fortress is near the settlement that caries the same name, this area included the Roman complex Laderata, for this is where the emperor Traian crossed Danube on his expedition to Dacia. The ancient settlements are proved by epigraphic monuments, jewels, plastics and ceramics. The Roman location was the base for the Turkish fortress built in the XV century by Mehmet pasha.

Golubac fortress: located at the entry to Djerdap gorge on the location of the Roman fort Cuppae, mentioned in the XV century, but there are indications it was built earlier. Built on a steep rocky bank over the river and was used until the Turks went away. Considered one of the more picturesque and preserved medievial buildings.

Sa ture 1. maj - Sopotnica, rafting Limom, kanjon Uvca:

"Organizacija je bila uglavnom dobra, video sam mesta za koje nisam znao ni da postoje. Tako da je cela akcija barem za mene bila u pravom smislu značenja ISTRAŽI SRBIJU. Sledeći put malo više akcenta staviti na nas gastro turiste... hrana je mogla biti bolja... Ostalo ... daleko iznad očekivanja."
