Belgrade to Novi Sad Private Excursion












Balkan Chauffeur is at your disposal for your private day-trip from Belgrade with a sightseeing tour in Eastern Serbia. The main attraction on this tour is the famous Golubac Fortress. It is located on the Danube band at the entrance in Iron Gate – Djerdap gorge . It is for sure the most beautiful fortress in Serbia. Inside the fortress are guides who can inform you a lot about the rich history of this middle-age fortress. Golubac is a little less than 2 hours of driving from Belgrade. It is really worth to come to see it.

Places of interest in eastern Serbia

But if you wish to see more, there is a lot of attractions nearby. We recommend a coffee break at Silver Lake, Archeological Museum Vimnacium, and Ram Fortress at the Danube too. Those places are relatively on the way. One hour further away from Golubac is possible to visit the Archeological site of Lepenski Vir and Kapetan Mišin Breg, a great viewpoint on Djerdap Gorge.

Professional chauffeurs from our limo service from Belgrade are knowledgeable about all the tourist locations of Iron Gate in eastern Serbia and they will provide you with all the information you need.
