Kladovo is a lively town set on the banks of the Danube River. Stroll along the three-kilometre-long promenade and sunbathe on Kladovo Plaza, one of the best beaches on the iconic European waterway. Honey-coloured pebble sand and thatched umbrellas give the beach a Mediterranean feel.
The town offers an excellent selection of cafes and restaurants, including establishments where you can try traditional Serbian cuisine. On weekends, a handful of bars host live music. Venture into the countryside to discover the picturesque Negotin Valley winemaking region and taste rare varietals such as Black Tamjanika and Bagrina.
Kladovski Rit marshland is just outside the town centre and is a haven for local birdlife. Spot more than 140 species, including herons, white-tailed eagles, European bee-eaters and cormorants.
There are several fascinating archeological sites in the area, including Trajan's Bridge, built by the Romans in 103 AD. Learn more about the region’s ancient past at the Archaeology Museum of Đerdap. The collection spans several millennia and features artefacts from the Roman, medieval and prehistoric eras.
Kladovo is located in the Bor District of Eastern Serbia, a 3.5-hour drive from Belgrade. The Romanian town of Drobeta-Turnu Severin is on the other side of the Danube, a 30-minute drive away.
