Our next stop is "Lepenski Vir". This is a spectacular archaeological site in Serbia that is the "cradle of Europe". Lepenski Vir is also the name of a great source in the middle of the Danube, near the Đerdap gorge, called the Iron Gate, which was formed by winds during a mighty and fast river through the southern slopes of the Carpathians.
Lepenski Vir is a Mesozoic archaeological complex, which means it dates from the Middle Stone Age. It was inhabited by the first cattle in Europe about 8000 years BC, after the melting of huge ice glaciers covering most of the northern hemisphere, when the climate became warmer.
Lunch in the eco-ethno complex “Kapetan Mišin breg” While enjoying a beautiful view of the Djerdap gorge complemented by culinary specialties and the sounds of wooden flutes, you can listen to a story about the history. Within the compound, you will find an open-air gallery called “Man, wood, water,” which is a collection of sculptures made of wood and stone as well as a wine museum.
