It is located at the entrance to the Djerdap Gorge at the site of the Roman fortress Cuppae, mentioned in the 15th century, but it has an idiom that was built earlier. It was built on a steep rocky slope above the river itself and was used until the Turks withdrew. It belongs to the most picturesque and best preserved medieval buildings.

Rajačke and Rogljevačke pivnice:

They represent a unique architectural complex of wine cellars built from the mid-18th to the 1930s. The complex consists of 270 pubs around the central square with a fountain in Rajc and 170 in Rogljev. They were built of carved stone and logs, and covered with keramides.

Basements are partially buried in the ground so that the temperature varies very little over the year, and on the first floor there are rooms for staying at the time of harvest and wine cultivation.

Vine's vine was cultivated in the vicinity of Negotin even in Roman times since the 3rd century. In the XIX century, the Negotin Krajina appeared as an exporter of wine to France, Austria, Austria, Germany, Russia. The wines are of superior quality because the local locust is grown on a lively sand along the Danube.

Rajac, Rogljevo and Smedovac three neighboring villages of rich wine history and very attractive pubs make a special part of the Negotin wine cellar. These villages also have the smoothest red wines that are a happy blend of good soil, plenty of sunshine and altitudes of 150 to 250 meters. Among the landscape wines, the great red wine has black wines from prokupca, black burgundy and game. Wines have intense red color, they are pleasant flavors and bugs. White wines are known as Bagrina, Semión, Italian Riesling, Sauvignon and Smederevka.

Prstasti Vratne:

They are located in the valley of the Vratna River, which are large walls that make up an organ stone door, created by erosion of the river. There are a total of three: Small and Great Gate and Suva prerast. The small stone gate is 15 m long, and the Great 45 m. Specific woody and bushy flora has settled here in the ice age, with beech, walnut, lilac, ash. About 400 species of grass grow on the rocks and pastures, many of which are medicinal.

The natural beauty of this forest hilly area is complemented by the cultural monument of the Vratna and the same hunting ground with a large flock of mouflons and a deer of the deer paddle.

House of Stevan Mokranjac in Negotin:

Stevan Stojanović Mokranjac is one of the most important Serbian composers to date. Born in Negotin in 1856, he died in Skopje in 1914. His world and spiritual choral compositions were embedded in the cultural and musical heritage of our country and became a part of history as well as everyday music practice.

The famous 15 Rukoveti, composed by the author from 1883 to 1909 - are among the top achievements of Serbian music, and represent the type of choir souvenirs inspired by folklore from different parts of the South Slavic region. The most famous are VI handpiece (dedicated to Hajduk Veljko) and X (with the theme Biljana canvas white), which will later serve Jovan Jovanovic as an inspiration for ballet "Ohrid legend".

The birth house of Stevan Mokranjac contains the setting that was made in the ambient style of the old town house from the end of the XIX century.

On the ground floor there is a permanent exhibition of Stane Djuric Klajn about Mokranjac's spiritual and worldly creativity, with a musical analysis of his compositions. This is usually the place where chamber concerts, literary meetings and other cultural activities are held. On the first floor is an ethnological setting with significant objects from the time when the famous Serbian composer lived.
