The new village of Golubac is a prominent place for tourism including sightseeing of Tabula Traiana and fishing. The Golubac fortress was part of the medieval village of Golubac, built in the 14th century 4 km downstream. It may date back even to Roman times, when a military watch post called Cuppae was established here and a settlement called Columbria was built around 55 AD. In 1428, a ferocious battle happened between Ottomans and Hungarian troops. Until 1867, the fortress often changed military hands, before it finally became a part of Serbia. Today, Golubac fortress, thanks to its towers and history, is one of the most picturesque fortresses and castles along the Danube and can be visited. The name of the fortress probably derives from the pigeons found there. The Fortress is located within the Djerdap National Park. Boat tours and bicycle rent are offered at the location. A hiking path connects the fortress and the village of Golubac (90 minutes).
