Usually, Eastern Serbia Bike Tour starts at Silver Lake (near Veliko Gradište) – one of the best-known holiday resorts in Serbia with is sandy beaches and variety of fresh-water fish. It got its name because of the silver-like glistening of water surface, when the sun goes its way somewhere behind the Carpathian Mountains.
From there, we are pedaling via EuroVelo 6 route and along the Danube River with its beautiful scenery and banks which understand and accept humanity better than we do, since Danube has a long history of human settlements on its shores.

For its strategic position, it was first Roman settlement (before construction of Fortress) and in the possession of Bulgarians, Serbs, Ottomans, Hungarians and Serbs again after 1867.
Lepenski Vir - important archeological site of the European Mesolithic culture with its earliest marks of human settlement from year 9.400 B.C. to 7.500 year B.C. Naturally formed river terraces along Danube where perfect spot for the first fisherman-hunter-collector communities to settle and slowly get accustomed to non-nomad way of life.

Staute of Decebalus on the left (Romanian) side of the Danube - the largest stone statue in Europe. It is the statue of the last king of Dacians whose name supposed to mean “The strength of Dacians”.
