Golubac Fortress

Reconstruction of Golubac Fortress

Spatial Cultural-Historical and Natural Unit Golubac Fortress is a unique and indivisible functional unit of natural (nature reserve Golubac Fortress) and built resources (medieval fortress and archaeological sites next to the fortress itself), and a cultural monument of exceptional importance located in the Djerdap National Park, on the right bank of the Danube river.

The Golubac Fortress is a cultural heritage monument of not only the area of the Lower Danube and the Republic of Serbia, but also of Europe, and represents the basis of European cultural diversity. The most significant and most comprehensive project of reconstruction of the Golubac Fortress is envisaged by the Programme Socio-Economic Development of the Danube Serbia Region, which is primarily financed by the EU funds from the 2011 and the 2016 National Programme for the Republic of Serbia, in the total amount of around EUR 9 million. The Republic of Austria has provided a part of the funds, while the Austrian Development Agency manages the EU funds.

The existing funds are planned to be used for the following: the completion of works on the reconstruction of the Golubac Fortress, a tourist presentation of the Fortress which includes the preparation of the Concept of Presentation − Plan/Framework of interpretation, the development of an interior design solution in the towers and the palace (exhibition design), a business plan, as well as the purchase of appropriate furniture and equipment.

In the current course of reconstruction of the Golubac Fortress, according to the report issued by the competent authorities, the reconstruction works on the Šešir Kula - Kula Legendi (Tower 1), Travareva Kula (Tower 3), Kula Vojvoda (Tower 5), Topovska Kula (Tower 9), as well as the reconstruction of the ramparts 3, 4, 8 and 9, are to be completed soon, while the remaining units are in different, more mature stages of works completion.

The deadline for the completion of reconstruction of the Golubac Fortress and its accompanying contents is November 2018.
